Bits and pieces of my home


One of my favourite movies is called Broken Flowers.


This is what my kitchen looks like, no time (or priority?) to take care of it.


The monstera plant needs a new pot and fresh soil.


?


A plant that moved in a few months ago, it's taking over the place in a good way.


I read a lot of books, these are both unread ones given to me by friends and aquintances, favourite books and books I read when I was 12. I like the mix and find it hard to throw away books no matter if I like them or not. Glad I brought them all with me when I moved here.


Today I took a long walk with new shoes that made me feet so sore that I had to buy a pair of socks. I looked like the Swedish flag.


Found this man on the street a few weeks ago, his name is George.

  1. I love seeing your piles of books! I have to be ruthless now - there is no more room for books in my house, unfortunately... And I'm glad I'm not the only one who doesn't keep their kitchen totally neat and tidy!

  2. George is such an awesome find! And your plants are still alive! Yay. Have you read the Haruki Murakami book already? Did you like it?

    1. these are a few i have liked through the years: johanna nilsson, john ajvide lindqvist, christine falkenland, per hagman, carina rydberg, jonas gardell, pär lagerkvist - don't know how many of them who have been translated to english but i'm sure that's easy to find out.

  11. I feel the same way about books. It just feels wrong to get rid of them.

    Your photographs are always so beautiful. Even your pile of dishes looks glowing through your lens!

  13. well hello handsome George! i have the same kind of leggins(?) like your new owner has.
    and the same problem, it´s very difficult to throw books away. but every once in a while i just have to do it, this apartment is too small for too many books. then i take them to antiqvariat (?) and hope that somebody else still can enjoy of them.

  14. Broken Flowers is a great movie! I love the soundtrack too. I see plenty of books in Sweedish..do you read books in German? I got myself, that even though I do read a lot in German I prefer reading books in Russian or English (maybe because it's easier for me).
