i have been having a love affair with swedish home decorating. i can't get enough of it. books...magazines...blogs...
this is what i did yesterday... painted the small sideboard in my dining room and will start the large one today. not sure if i will leave the mirror or not? my floors are a dark chocolate brown as well as table/chairs/2 hutches...so i am thinking to keep some variety by having the mirror stay brown as well. we'll see...
here are a few of my favorite swedish blogs for you to enjoy! but...

The sweet scent of lilac; the glorious discovery of budding lily-of-the-valley; the rustling of the ocean breeze through my hair; the feel of soft sand between my toes; the sight of fluttering butterflies and dragonflies in the fields.
