Christmas in May!!

Got a package from my Mom in Sweden on Saturday, feels like Christmas every time!


It was packed with all kinds of stuff!!


Hubby got a bunch of Hot Rods and Bike Magazines



Also in the package, Swedish mustard and sardines in tomato sauce, yum!! 


I got the wonderful book about a cafe in Sweden and it includes their best recipes, too!!

If you ever go the Småland, Sweden is this cafe on the must visit list!!


I also got a whole bunch of Home Magazines packed with great ideas and reportages from Swedish homes, always fun to read!


A big bag full of delicious salt & sweet licorice!!


My Mom always include some linen for me, this time a wonderful pink and red roses tablecloth, a large Christmas tablecloth and a couple of really neat wall-hangings  love it all!!



On Sunday did we decide to revive our El Camino, that we have had parked for the last couple of years. 


It started more or less right away!!


It was so happy to be running and be out in the free again!!


Thomas cleaned it up really nice, he will give it a good polish and it will be back in business again.


Meanwhile Thomas was working on the El Camino, did I weed some planters and planted some flowers, love the red Gerbera Daisies, I hope they will last in the heat!


Thanks for stopping by!! Have a great week!!

God förmiddag på dig.
Så kul med jul när man får paket från Sverige.
Hur är det med godis och sånt, får man skicka det?
Tänkte på chocklad och smågott.
Härliga dukar och handdukar.
Den där boken om fik i småland verkar klart intressant. Även för en östgöte menar jag,fniss.

Det ser ut som ni har det varmt och gott hos er. Mer än vad man kan säga här.
10 plus och regnet som hänger i luften. Vindstilla dock, vilket jag tycker var skönt nu när vi var nere och såg på 17 mai tåget.
Ska lägga ut lite bilder och några videos hos mig under dagen så har du tid, gå och titta.

Nu ska vi fika.
17 mai kake och jordgubbar.

Yum licorice! What a wonderful package from your mom!

Love the El Camino, my friend has an old one too which he still drives every day.

Love your plantings, I did a couple of pots last week. They seem to be doing pretty well, at least for now.

Hope you had a great weekend.
