Gingerbread Cupcake

A gingerbread house in the shape of a giant cupcake? Saw this at Cafe 13 in Ljungby today. They also had a sparkly white Christmas tree with cupcake ornaments and multi-colored lights.

Small towns have the best flea markets and Mom and I lucked out today. Vintage tablecloths, candlesticks and a big portrait of Jesus. Did I mention that my mother is a Reverend?


 Candlestick and vintage tablecloth.

We dropped by Grandma for a visit and I found a group of tomtenissar (Santa's little helpers) eating rice porridge. My mom made these little fellas from an old egg box, felt and other bits and pieces when I was a kid. I got all nostalgic and took them home with me.

Punk Rock & Roll

I want that good feeling of the open road! We all need a little punk rock & roll!

I haven't fallen off the face of the earth. I'm just being held hostage by an evil cold. The sneezing, endless tissues and lack of energy is driving me crazy. I wish I could stay on the couch, eat kiwi fruit, drink tea and watch Buffy the Vampire Slayer.

Is anyone working on the cure for the common cold? I don't have any vast sums of money to donate to research but I'd happily cheer them on with some enthusiastic clapping of hands.

Good Riddance

I've had a lot to do lately. Busy at work, busy with the hepcat store, busy sorting out my own head. And then there's all the little everyday things like groceries to buy, returning library books and remembering where I last saw the car keys.

But I also keep thinking about things and people I thought I had made up my mind about. Questioning my own actions and decisions. Asking that eternal question "what if". Hoping to talk to you. Looking at that photo of us. Wondering what is on your mind and why I care.
Maybe I'm processing. Maybe I just need a vacation.

Time to take Billy Joe's advice... 
So make the best of this test and don't ask why
it's not a question but a lesson learned in time.
