Guesthouse kitchen

Almost done, only a shelf or two are missing!

When we stayed in the guesthouse in the beginning of the summer, I was using this black rolling cart a lot. The kitchen table is really small, so it was perfect to load up for example the breakfast. A morning tip from me!

I see in this picture there is still some blue plastic under the hood, oh well that’s better compared having the plastic inside the oven when you use it for the very first time. If that happened last summer? Oh yes!!

An upgrade from last year, knobs from BeslagDesign! Work and look much better than tape :)

 

 

 

All by myself

For the very first time I’m alone in our house. (All my boys went camping including cousin Melker!) I’m sitting here in the kitchen listening to Ed Sheeran and just enjoying some me time. After all light summer nights I think the darker August evenings are so cozy.  Soon another two of Eddie-Bo and Oliver’s cousins are arriving. And I have to admit I’m happy to not sleep alone in the house… The music all of the sudden stopped and I heard some noise… I’m not normally afraid of being alone, but I had a mouse in the house the other the night that scared the sh.t out of me, haha!

 

The new kitchen is almost done

We are slowly moving in to the main house. It’s not styled, not all done, still very empty, but we are getting there! I’m beyond happy about our new kitchen! (And I feel it deserves better pictures, but I was in a rush).

What a productive day. Started with a meeting with our contractor. After that I went into town (Linkoping) by myself, and in two hours I bought pots, pans, coffee maker, knifes and other things you can’t live without in a kitchen! I found showers for a bathroom and a faucet for the laundry, I picked up carpet samples, did some speed shopping at my favorite interior design store Esq, and picked out tile for a bathroom. I knew what I was looking for, and it happened to be right inside the door. That decision took me about 10 seconds, haha, they told me that was a record :)

In the afternoon we left our new house and drove to our other house in Smaland. It feels so nice and relaxing to be here where everything is done! The kids were also happy to see their toys and Eddie-Bo ran from the car to the sports court and started to play street hockey!

While the kids played my amazing mother in law came over, and gave me reflexology, how nice?! And it was well needed for my achy feet, I haven’t been still since… Miami I think :)
