A creative life

My Saturday morning.
This is in my mind.
The beauty of being creative.
My biggest need in life is to find beauty and to live it.
In all kind of ways.
Being creative is a way of breathing for me.
It is a way for me, to tell you, who I am, what I think and what I aim for.
It is a way of expressing my thoughts without using too many words.
It is another level of understanding life.


  1. "Alexis with a rose hydrangea": What a nice picture, dear Stina. This morning, I also bought a (blue) hydrangea at the flower market. Reading your blog, I noticed that you use Dypthique candles: May I ask you what are your favourite fragances? Have a wonderful weekend! :-)

  2. Beatrice: I also love the picture. And those are my favorite flowers. I have a blue one at home also, often on my dining table.
    Yes, those and Byredos candles are the only one I use in my home. From the Dyotyque I only buy the fragrance " Pooanpax". Which one do you prefer? Same to you!

  3. Thank you very much for your answer. I love perfumes, but I never had perfumed candles. I have found an adress where I can order Byredo and Dypthique candles. So I will try one per label! :-)

  4. Beautifully written! You are beautiful on the inside and on the outside, a rare combination! (And I love your sense of style.)



  5. How gorgeous!

    I am going to London on thursday, and I simply can't wait! Even though I have been there several times, I always like to discover new parts of the city, which brings me to my question: Which stores/places is a must for you when you go to London?

    Thank you so much for a beautiful blog!

  6. Diptyque and Opoponax maybe? ;)

  7. love your blog and the pictures! :)

    can I ask you where you got your bedside table? it is absolutely gorgeous!

  8. Elisabeth: Look at the label London at my blog and get some good restaurant tips. I always have an Afternoon tea at some of the High tea places. Lovely porselin and delicious cakes with warm and cosy tea is a must. The english elegans is something I admire very much.
    Where ever I go, Chanel always gets a visit, Diane von Furstenberg, Givenchy and Hermés aswell.

    Fortum & Mason you just can't miss, Harrods and Liberty neither, ... my brain is full of breastfeeding fog at the moment but please, look here for inspiration.

    And do make a reservation to the restaurants I recommend, you wont get disapointed!

    anonym; Exactly, sorry.

    Heidi: It was almost 7 years ago, but look at Ralph Lauren home.

    Have a lovely trip!

  9. Dear Stina,

    Thank you so much for giving me these wonderful tips, I will definitely give them a go!

    Anyways, enjoy this time with your little miracle, it is truly a special time!
