Now we have moved our production of Kalklitir, (our lime-paint company) 
from Iceland to Sweden.   Wow!! It was a lot of work, and so many 
things had to be done,  but we are "up and running" again, 
and already have some very nice shops in Scandinavia 
selling our lime-paint, so all is well :):)

I'm also happy so say that we are bringing the colour Lute primo back!!

 This is the very first lime-colour I used in my home and I fell 
completely in love with it back then.

It feels so good to see this old favorite again :)

If you are interested in learning more about our lime-paint
please feel free to contact us :
or just take a look at our homepage :

Hope you have a really nice day...

for the Queen...

Earlier this year, I got my hands on some very old wood, doors & windows.
 Slowly I've been finding them a new role in my home.

Iv'e had this dream of having my own greenhouse,
and with a lot of help from my son Viktor 
...I now own this beautiful "mini greenhouse" 

Work in progress...
( Lucky me, I know!!)

Meet the "Queen of Denmark" and beautiful!

I like "new" things made from old stuff.

 Happy weekend!!

this blue phase..

Everything I create these days, from transfer pictures for my bowls,
to decoupage plates or hand painted pillows are blue,, blue, blue!!
For me it feels almost like cheating, because grey is really my thing ;)

So few facts (found online) :
Blue has more complex and contradictory meanings than any other color! 
Dark blue: trust, dignity, intelligence, authority.
Bright blue: cleanliness, strength, dependability, coolness.
Light (sky) blue: peace, serenity, ethereal, spiritual, infinity.

 Blue is the #1 favorite color of all people. (I'm all people ;)
Blue symbolizes the Virgin Mary. (love her ;)
Blue can be used to open energy flow where it is blocked. (sounds good ;)
Using blue to relax will encourage feelings of communication and peace. (feels good ;)

I'm going to enjoy this blue phase I'm in...

from wood to STUC...

I wanted to try out our product called STUC on these white wooden candlesticks I had.
I added more water to the STUC to make it easier to use, colored it with a grey pigment
and then I simply used a paintbrush, two layers and no primer this time ;)

STUC is normally used on floors or walls to give a "tadelakt look" and we use a spatula 
instead of a paintbrush, but I like this stuff so much that I am trying it out 
on all kinds of things and so far it's going well!

 (these have been brown, grey and silver before ;)

 ...adding some sparkle to it ;)

I like to put STUC on all my floors now!!?
