Hit me with you best instagram accounts (your own or the one you´re obsessed with)

Summer is coming to an end even though I´m sorry to see her go I´m really looking forward to what fall and winter is really about: watching TV.
I´m also making room in my calendar for lots of new Instagram obsessions.  So please share with me your favorite accounts!

Let me start by telling you about some that I´m very excited about.

@what_my_daughter_wore
Awesome illustrations of what kids wear.

@michelgaubert
NO INFO in his profile, but I think this guy is a DJ. His feed is a great collection of things that makes my heart beat faster.

@anti_cgi
Pictures of movies made before computer generated imagery came along. Sometimes scary!
(you might ask -Jenny why are you not following this account? Well. My kids borrow my phone often and sometimes they check my instagram feed, I don´t want them seeing some of the stuff that is shown here. I do however check the feed regularly)

@strangersvacations
Random pictures from strangers vaccations.

 

Now please tell me, I´m dying to know, who do you love to follow?

 

PS: Read more about why I love Instagram and Selifes in this post!

Exhibition with Isabelles stuff in the black box

IMG_3880

This month I’ve got the opportunity to show the stuff I’ve made this year at Hotel Scandic Malmen in central Stockholm.  It’s fun to see all the things together. Here I go around not really seeing the obvious a red tread in what I do but apparently they all mix and match.

The Black box or Svarta lådan in Swedish is a great concept by  Mr trend-forecaster himself - Stefan Nilsson and his Designgalleriet. Showing young (thanks for being among there) designers and their work. The window is at one of the busiest corners in Stockholm and I’m told 200 000 persons passes here every week.

I also put myself as a pillow in the window.. and the bed textiles I made for Ellos.

Yeah you know it by now. Minimalistic is not my thing. I made large pin wheels with my wallpapers for MrPerswall.

Also September 14th it’s election time in Sweden and I had to do something. So this rabbit is telling people to vote – It’s scary how many people just don’t give a crap. Democracy being such a fantastic thing to be part of and be proud of. I wanted to put Jenny in the window with her laser anti Nazi eyes. I do hope people will vote with love instead of anger, hate or fear.
Three good things in Swedish to read:
1. Invandrare etalar mer till samhället än de får tillbaka
2. Nej, tiggarna styrs inte av kriminella ligor
3. Hannapees fantastiska inlägg om medmänsklighet och fattigdom.

Got the thumbs up from my daughter. – Thanks luv!

Check out this window until end of September 2014.

35/52 Isabelle from Dosfamily

isa35

I’m home in bed with the fever (look rosy cheeks, watery eyes, swallowed an apple whole  – smile) reading Donna Tartts The Goldfinch. I’m half way trough and I love being in that written world when everything fades away. So far I really like it but I can’t pinpoint why. It is a brick of a book but reads like slicing butter and what’s gonna happen with this boy? Have you read it – do you like it?  This is interesting read about the book in Vanity Fair.

Also I got new glasses – hot red ones. They kind of look just the same as the ones I had before but more shiny. Typical isn’t it. These ones are from Favoptic.
