Are you a new reader to Dos Family?-start here!



I am Jenny Brandt an interior and lifestyle photographer from Ystad, Sweden.
I fill Dos Family with pieces from my life, interiors I´ve vistied and other random stuff. My blogging lacks structure and I decide what to blog about from day to day. You could say the blog is fueld by my own need to talk about things.

PS: I never re-post things. Everything here is hand made by me.


A lifestyle blog with focus on Family Life. Home Improvement. DIYBirthday parties and so much more.  I also visit and photograph homes. See them all here! And all our kids rooms here!

Dos family started in 2009 as a creative collaboration between Jenny Brandt and decorator Isabelle McAllister.
In 2015 the blog transformed into Jenny´s own blog while Isabelle McAllister moved over to

Here are some of our favorite posts:

Jenny and Isabelle as kids!  Jenny´s To Dos Lists. Isabelle´s Lace Lamp (with over 400 comments!!!!) Jenny´s BIG my little pony. This is what one week of Isabelle´s life is like!   Isabelle´s wedding part 1 and part 2. Behind the scenes of the Party Book. The Mermaid Party!  We are crazy about costumes and Halloween and Unicorns and Eye Patches 

Dos Family has awesome readers they sent us their Family Portraits. They also joined “Have A Stranger Take Your Picture TOUR

Check out the album “Mixed Dos” on our Facebook page. And also the album “Crafting with your kids and FOR them

And don´t miss the Party Book and the Sammy Rose shop (prints by Jenny´s hubby Jens Grönberg)

    I´m Paula Wilberger, from Buenos Aires, Argentina. I´d like to congratulate you two for your blog and your own way to show how you live. I´ve been visiting dos familiy for almost a year by now, and you girls have inspired me so much!

    So much; that I´ve decided that it is already time to have my own blog. Actually I started lasta night and it´s called Flipclock. So look for it (just with k)

    It´s very incomplete but you´ll see I will improve it and myself as a new blogger.

    I´m a tv journalist, mother of two and starting a new life. Love design, flea markets, cool music, kids world, and all that stuff that make us feel more confortable and happier.

    CLAP CLAP CLAP for you!
    Love your work

    Best wishes, Paula.

      google beton cire / tadelac? or follow the link and email hem – maybe they can provide you with a retailer in another country? Good luck!
