Me in our "cosy light" elevator.

When I was younger I took many photos of myself. Trying to figure out who I was, and to look good I guess.
Now days I hardly ever see portraits of myself. I´m not so keen on to stand in front of the camera any more.
But here I am taking a photo of myself to blog. I´m 39, have two kids and a husband. Who I am pretty much
shows in this blog.

I think it would be nice to know a little more who you are.
You who visit me sometimes. Three questions.

1. Age?
2. Country?
3. How often are you here?

Thank you.

I admire the little world you've created with your family, art work and flea market finds. Since discovering your charming blog earlier this year, I've made two purchases from your fine little shop: "The Fattest Boy in the World" book (which I've framed and plan to hang in my animation work space) along with the vintage embroidered painting of the boats. A real gem. I cherish your finds, and want you to know that your posts inspire me!
Thank you.
