I´m becoming more and more 40.
Drinking port wine and reading books about needlework and sewing...

That fabric is perfect! Perfect for everything! & if that's 40, then bring it on! Sounds heavenly! x

Well, ain't nothing wrong with that! I'm not 40, but if that's what 40's about, then by all means, let's all be 40!!! :)

Fine Little Day said...

I´m not 40 yet either but will be this summer. I think I´m going to enjoy it :)

Erin said...

Good grief. I'm 25 and that sounds like a perfect way to pass my time...

Jeana Marie said...

in that case, 40 sounds wonderful!

Marion said...

Your couch is my dreamy couch !!!!!!!! I love it !

Enia Is (Almost) Here said...

sounds wonderful to me (and looks so as well)!

Débora said...

Beautiful books Elisabeth!

La sirène said...

So let's be 40*

Bohemian girl said...

Needlework and sewing also makes me worried about myself. I wish it meant to be more feminine, instead I feel like I don't have much else left than embroidery.

Hey, that port wine, good idea!

Gigi said...

Oh, just wait til you hit your 50's ;-)!
Blessings,
G
P.S. Love your fluffy cloud!

But you're rockin' it, so it's OK. And you're awake. That's got to be good. It's the test for a senior's card, so I hear.

A Day That is Dessert said...

Ha ha - me too!! I just turned 40 and I'm really becoming it - I keep surprising myself with my thoughts and some of my actions.

kristin said...

I'm a year into 40, and that sounds just about right. (Even when I was young, I loved the old-fashioned.) Pass the port, I say!

That fabric is lovely. I've been wanting to get something from them for a while now...

hehe, sometimes i *feel* like i'm forty when i'm only seventeen. i get too stressed. i say, no more of it. :) when i see that cloud by your sofa, i always think "ihana!", which is finnish for "wonderful!", but with so much more loveliness. :)

liza said...

The forties are my favorite decade yet!

SouleMama said...

I'm 41 and I feel happier than I was in my 20s!
Great link, love that fabric and the embroidery book... let it put it this way: you see things in a more contemplative way !)

the yellow house in the U said...

Forties are the new 30's. And depending on how much of that port you drink maybe even the new 20's!

Fine Little Day said...

at swim-two-birds, I´m a lion :)

Julie Hendriks, yes isin´t it lovely! The cloud is from http://lacasita.bigcartel.com/

the yellow house in the U, I like the way you see and say it, ha ha.

Sabrina said...

Gosh, I want to move in! Everything looks so cosy! And btw: Aren't they saying that 40 is the new 30? You have nothing to worry about! ;-)

Bichos da Matos said...

It's like port wine the older, the better;)

Ulicam said...

Jag önskar att jag hade ett moln på min vägg...

Astrid said...

Hihi. Så søt du er! Den sofaen din er helt FANTASTISK!

Long live the quarantine! It's like good wine. Very good wine...

emma said...

Elisabeth, det klär dig! Njut och fortsätt, det bådar gott detta. Ser gött ut. Var inte ängslig. Skål! (fina tofflor btw!)

Haust said...

Beautiful photos! I love the cloud on the wall...

nathalie et cetera said...

heli said...

i adore the combination of that curved sofa and the cloud on the wall. every post with a picture of it makes me happy (every post with or without it, actually).

haha...that's too funny...lovely pics.

when skies are grey said...

I think I will keep this imagery in my mind as I near 40. Couch, book perusing, port...sounds just about perfect.

Sarah said...

You make me unafraid to age. I love your blog, by the way. :)

caramela said...

I will be 49 in April this year and I have to tell you my forties were definitiely the best years of my life so far... I am looking forward to the next decade. I am a bit unsure about the sixties... but I am always surprised at the wonders of life so we will see... So, happy rounding up into the fories I say!
Annamaria :)

Amanda said...

I've been 40 for the last 10 years. I'm 27.

Julia said...

Härligt! Jag gillar den där soffan. :)

Fine Little Day said...

caramela, that sounds comforting :)

Lou Lou & Oscar said...

I'm 40 in March and really can't wait, not that I'm wishing my life away of course! I feel so much more content than in my twenties and sewing and crafting has been the most amazing discovery of my late thirties. Now I'm off to cook dinner for my 3 year old son!
Thank you for the inspiration Elisabeth.

elisabeth dear , port and embroidery books (me too !) you are going to enjoy it.....absolutely , it has been the making of me , I have finally found a way to feel me (most of the time )...um it was 6 years ago a few days back that I reached it

jokemijn said...

auch, is that something for forty-year-olds? i'm 24 and sipping some port wine on a cold winter evening.

Elisabelle said...

Well... it looks nice to 40. nice and cozy!

becka said...

That sounds absolutely perfect to me! I love the look of that book, too.

Mary said...

port wine & reading sound like a perfect combination to me - but i am in my 40s now too :)
bonne année!

Cassandra said...

I'll join you with my sherry and japanese craft book that I'm currently enjoying. 40 is lovely. Would you like a biscuit too?

hodge podge said...

i just turned 41 and it keeps getting better! love those cozy stripey slippers...

ieva jansone said...

dear elisabeth, i'm not sure about the 50's and 60's, but 30's and 40's are definately the best decades in the life of a creative, emancipated woman!

malo said...

:-)
Ja det där slår mig varje dag. Jag kommer att bli en alldeles utmärkt pensionär. Jag älskar min sekatör alldeles oproportioneligt också.
Ser mysigt ut!

flo said...

aaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaah ! finn juhl !!!

PROVINS said...

Jeg er 24 år og elsker de samme ting! Portvin og alt sammnen! Hurra for det!

Paulette said...

So funny that you wrote "I am becoming more and more 40." I have been 40 for a whopping 12 days now, and am wondering daily what exactly that means. . . do think I'm already feeling more adventurous, so that's a start. . .
