Solar illuminated bird feeder

Feeding wild birds or backyard birds is a great way to learn more about them. They are such fascinating and adorable little creatures. To be successful at the birds dinner table I have eventually learned what to give them to keep them coming. Here you can see the tiny “solar panel” I mounted on the roof – the…… Continue reading Solar illuminated bird feeder

Crochet wool mittens

I’m hooked, addicted and already have a long list of what I plan to create with my smoking hot crochet needles. Preferably I want to create things that somehow can be useful and used, and not only for decoration, and when possible use natural materials.. but there will always be exceptions, I know myself. Well, my second…… Continue reading Crochet wool mittens

Natural backstop for archery target

Finnish Lapphund puppy

Finally, after years of evaluating, longing and waiting, I got our new family member home last week after travelling 2000 km during 3 days. I absolutely adore this lil’ girl’s wonderful temper – she is calm and composed when introduced to new and unexpected situations (except with the cats ..ho..ho..action!), alternated with a frisky and playful mood.. and…… Continue reading Finnish Lapphund puppy

My cosy little farm in Northern Sweden

So I finally did it. I have moved… (ahem ..yes, again).. but this time to the northern part of Sweden. People have various reasons why they move, but for me it was a combination of too expensive living costs in town, the increasing criminality and of course…an old dream of having my very own little…… Continue reading My cosy little farm in Northern Sweden
