Blog Battle! We like alike. 2 homes – same stuff.

We have written about it before. How me and Jenny got to be friends over the internet and then we started this blog. This summer we hung out a lot since I worked in the south of Sweden for 8 weeks!
What is so fun with Jen is that a lot of times we are sharing the same vibe, like talking, doing and thinking about same stuff.
So it not much news that we own the same kind of things. Even though most of it is flea finds!
Jenny – show me your stuff – here comes mine!
Let the blog battle begin!

This huge monchichi is from when I was a kid in the 70′.
My dad saved a lot of stuff for me wich I really appriciate today.

I love dots. Buying all kind of things just cause thay are dotted.
This china is a fleamarket find from Belgium. Orignal from the 50′.

The black clogs are typical Skåne tofflor. (From the south of Sweden).
I found them on a flea near by Jenny home this  summer, for 1,5 dollares.

We both love painted furnitures. And we both bought our Stokkes second hand and painted them.
The dotted pillow I made and then gave one to Jenny.
And not only do we own the same kind of stuff- our boys is almost the same age!

Not only do we share the same interest also our daughters like the same stuff.
DElla cried rivers when Viola found the Ariel Mermaid.
That she had one mermaid at home she kind of forgot in the spur of the moment.
(Ok, ok it ‘s not a real Ariel but for God’s sake how many barbies does a girl need?)

This moving her eyes apple  – music box is one of my favourite things that dad saved from my childhood. This summer me and Jenny went to a fleamarket and suddenly she got this gaze in her eyes – you know I could see she found the ultimate fleamarket find. And then she found a look alike musick box!
She didn’t know I had one.

I bought this jumping thing also from a second hand store 4 years ago when my daughter was a baby for 50 kronors! Now it’s little bro time – using it.

wow! what a terrific find!
I want one of those swings…oh wait! First,I need to have a child.
Why is looking at children’s toys & clothing so addicting?
May be it’s because I style baby clothes everyday!

haha. Love your blog, haven’t been in a while, but now I’m back. Love it.

I have been searching forever for the yellow apple with eyes! My Grandfather bought this for me when I was a baby and somehow it was missplaced. I would love it if you could tell me who it was made by so I can eventually find one.
