Gorgeous cabin – with beautiful big barn doors in a wonderful setting.  A motivating place, for sure, just as it is.

Daily inspiration, tin cans

Summer here in Australia & winter back home in Sweden – both wonderful seasons. I thought this image was suitable & a good description of two great cultures – with red tin cans for Christmas & suitable plants for summer. A good mix of two wonderful countries as well as seasons.

Bike ride

So, my darling suddenly decided to buy a bike. He never bikes but he’s now going to  participate in a ten miles bike ride with 10 thousand other cyclists where all the money goes to charity. He did a similar thing a few years ago. He then went & bought a bike plus all those things that comes with it – such as shoes, gloves, helmet &  those clothes that are padded & upholstered everywhere with lots of badges sewn here & there.

Anyway, he did not use any of the stuff after that bike tour. Just when we’ve finally driven away most of it to charity, he comes up with the idea to repeat the procedure. So my dear has been up early every morning the past weeks to kick start his fitness level. And finally, the big day is here. It was nice weather when he left early this morning but it got warmer during the day, around 37 degrees. That’s not so cozy!

(But the important thing was the earnings which are donated to charity, in this case, muscle disease).

Chest of drawers

At home we always have had plenty of spacious chest of drawers. The shape & design of the drawers with knobs or handles plus that they are so easy to furnish with & to put stuff on top, makes the difference. We use chest of drawers in each room, no matter where in the house. I have had them in the kitchen where we stored all the cutlery in the top drawer & textiles such as tea towels, napkins, tablecloths, in the bottom. They are  also perfect in the hallway for hats, gloves, umbrellas, scarves, etc. Kids rooms, bedrooms, bathroom & so on.

We have used various models throughout the years & gave away the last ones less then a year ago or so. In fact, I believe our boys kept one or two as a memory from their late childhood. And we have two white chest of drawers in our bedroom in perfect hight. They are just right for all sorts of little things that need to be stored with easy reach. I like that they so easily fits into different rooms for different needs.
