Jenny in an Ilon Wikland drawing

jennyfromdosfamily-0756Since it´s Thursday today Im trowing us back to 2009, when I was blonde, we had a pink loveseat and I pretended I was a part of a Astrid Lindgren story.

I rearranged my furniture, hung some curtains and plucked a few petals off my tulips to get the right atmosphere. Then I slipped into something that the mother in the picture below would wear. I´d found a 70´s dress in my closet and some clogs. I gave myself a look in the mirror and told myself. “Yes, this will do fine!” ran downstairs (imagine the sounds of clogs in the wooden stairs clonk, clonk, clonk)  then I had a seat and hollered at my boy: “Jens! it´s all perfect now, come take my picture!”

It is from the book “Jag vill också ha ett syskon” (I Want an Brother or a Sister) by superduo Ilon Wikland and Astrid Lindgren. A great book that you need to get if you have kids. Sweet story and amazing pictures.

How wonderful!

It also makes me think, why wouldn’t we arrange our furniture like this? Perhaps Wikland took some artistic liberties to arrange the living room in this way for his image, but it looks cozy and perfect for entertaining ladies with tea ;)

Hej. Hittade in på din blogg när jag i väntan på att min bil skulle lagas flydde regnet in på ett litet bibliotek i en liten håla på nya zealand. Plockade upp en inhemsk inredningstidning som tidsfördriv och där var ett reportage om ditt hem. Tänkte det kunde va lite kul o veta. Tror jag kommer bli en följare.. Ha en skön dag!
