Stockholm!

Last weekend I've been to Stockholm with my boyfriend, who was playing at Fylkingen
We were staying at our friend Per's house and he showed us around his neighborhood and some topic places around the city... needless to say I've loved every step of it! We also had a yummy vegan meal at the chinese restaurant Lao Wei, suggested by my swedish-berliner friend Victoria
But the thing that made my heart collapse a bit is his Sphynx cat, a tiny female named Noise:

I was very curious to see "in person"a cat of this particular breed, and after spending two days with one, and realizing that my the Mister had no signs of his calamitous cat allergy, we both decided that this is the cat for us!!! so now we are on the look for a female Sphynx, most probably after the summer. You cannot believe how this thought is making me happy!

These are some of the things that came back from Sweden with me!
I've found the beautiful and long time coveted Gustavsberg Bersa bowl at an elegant thrift store called Statdsmissionen, the "Detaljer Hemma" book at Designtorget, here are some pictures of it:
plus on the same "maple syrup for the eyes" mood, I've found this great magazine, "Hus & Hem RETRO", all in swedish but full of info about prices and what's hot in the Vaterland of Mid Century Modern Design... have a look:

I hope I will manage to get back in the summer, maybe staying a little longer than 48 hours :)
