I often come back to Spring in my work. I think the older I get the more I realise that Spring is my absolute favourite season. Every morning I check my garden for early green guests, I enjoy the birdsong,... Continue reading

På jullovet sprang jag en del på loppis och blev så glad när jag fick syn på en soffa som, trots att den var något solblekt hade "det". Den är mysig och inbjudande och när jag upptäckte att den dessutom... Continue reading

The recipe is very easy, the ingredients in English are at the bottom of my post! You melt cocoa fat and then mix it with the grains and put it in cups and voilá!

Thanks Cilla! It was -17C this morning and I must say I prefer that to your temperatures, even if it is a little too much! I hope that it gets better soon, terrible with the bush fires! xKajsa Kajsa Wikman-Colérus Syko Design http://www.syko.fi/ kajsa.wikman@syko.fi +358-(0)503602447 Like Syko on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sykodesign

Hi Michelle! The game is called Morjens! and reminds of Trivial pursuit. The questions are about the Swedish-speaking part of Finland. 6% of the population in my country speak Swedish as their mother-tongue and I am one of them :) xKajsa Kajsa Wikman-Colérus Syko Design http://www.syko.fi/ kajsa.wikman@syko.fi +358-(0)503602447 Like Syko on Facebook: http://www.facebook.com/sykodesign

I have a weak spot for old, embroidered textiles, the more traces of life they have, like coffee staines and holes, the more I like them! Now, in darkest November I find that creating unique fairy-angels out of these much... Continue reading

Jättesnyggt! Ja, precis samma modell är det ju! Nu håller jag på pynjar med ett ett vitrinskåp i furu till köket. Det är från 1980-talet, tror jag, i gammal stil. Tror nog det ska bli fint med ny färg och nya knoppar!
