He´s been cleaning all day. Not that he wants a tidy room but to "secure the area".
The little cousins are coming tomorrow. The living room shelf is now decorated with
a big Star Wars collection.

I'm in LOVE with all the Pez!

Jennifer said...

I'm in love with the Pez, too, and the pictures in general! Charming shots!

CrowNology said...

Awesome!

Jodi Anderson said...

I am so inspired by the Pez dispenser shelf. Our daughter, 17, has quite a collection of them and something like this would be perfect. I can see it being useful for many of her small collections.

I also think that your home is very inviting and beautiful.

jenna said...

good job, otto! the area looks secure. :)

So funny, it's smart of him to get everything into its' safe-from-little-hands places. I see he has some Bakugans too! Enzo is obsessed with them, ugh. I do like how they pop open on metal and all but they are so ugly and the cartoon is so horrible. It is a great point of contention with us, just on the principle of bad design alone;)

hadas said...

Daniel, my 8 year old from from Tel Aviv sends your son a message (after seeing his Bakugan collection): "Hey, Otto, wanna battle?"

i would do the same!!
the tiny sculptures in the plastic boxes look tree knots, are they?

cerealjoe said...

Pez Dispenser love!

Fine Little Day said...

when skies are grey, ha ha yes the Bakugans sure looks different. I can´t see how they can understand the playing rules. I´ve tryed to read and understand how to but for me it´s like trying to understand latin or something. Otto says he understands but can he really, can anyone? It seems very complicated.

hadas, I´m sure he would love too :)

at swim-two-birdsm actually they are shark teeths from millions of years ago. He got them at the Natural history museum here close us. He´s so proud of them.

emma said...

va fint det blir också, en jäklans ordning på de där i hyllan. PEZ-figurer va? sicken samling.

Hello Sandwich said...

ha ha 'secure the area' is hilarious! smart thinking! xxx

Lucille said...

I wish I still had my Pez machines. I used to love them. I can still remember the taste of the tiny oblong tablets.

decor8 Holly said...

Oh please show us the big Star Wars collection, I'd love to see it! :) I know, I'm a dork. :)

Linda said...

Fin länk. Tack för all inspiration och gott nytt år.

Ciara said...

Ah great! Nothing like the threat of little cousins to whip them into action!

Gorgeous pics, of course!

Sakletarn said...

Ibland är det bra att få gäster. Man tvingas ju att städa och plocka undan :D
Gott nytt år!

Minna said...

I have the same old Brio abc...toy as you do in my sons room. It´s my old and i love it. You have great blog. Hällsing fron Finland

Jane O Sullivan said...

I know the feeling otto ! o.m.g ....visitors can really be a nuisance ,if they get their way into special spaces ...I am very choosy as to who comes into my studio after too many silly people over the years finding it SO hard to understand why I would need ...."so many things " (poor them , I say !....hee hee )
otto , I love your pez collection !

Hannah Sadie said...

LISEN & STINA said...

Tänk att Pez ger en sån positiv känsla!

jokemijn said...

wood&wool stool said...

what a superb collection of pez holders. they remind me of my childhood. we always bought them in austria during our summer holidays. lovely! i even remember the taste of the sweets :)

Lucille said...

I'm so sorry! I think I have accidentally rejected a comment you were kind enough to leave me about the bird feeder.

Katherine Lee said...

Maria said...

å pez samlingen så fin! jag samlar fortfarande på dem trots att jag är 26 år...:)

GOTT NYTT ÅR PÅ ER!

Ali B. said...

Oh yes... I have a great Pez collection and now the idea to create a little shelf like this! Love it!!

when skies are grey said...

Ha! So funny that you say it's (the Bakugans) like trying to understand Latin. My husband loved that, it's too true. The cartoons are the same way-it seems like they have translated something horribly wrong, but no-it's just like that. So nice knowing someone who understands our pain, ha ha ;)

Hope you and your family have a great New Year as well Elisabeth!!

A Beautiful Party said...

I love that shelf. I always wanted a special shelf for my pez collection. that one looks just perfect!
