Visited the house today.
It is just too good to be true. Dare not hope. But I do, I really do.
Even the kids were overwhelmed. If we don't get it, please don't let the couple
with the make over plans be the ones who get it. So beautiful. Can hardly breathe.

Thanks for all encouraging comments about this dream.

And thank you for your nice response in the Fine Little Day giveaway!
Congrats Some Day Soon and Fröken Ö, you got yourself an optional Fine Little Day poster.

naa, we will probably know in about two weeks. We were about six presumptive buyers there today. And there will probably be a couple of more speculators the coming days. The house takes your breath away, it is even more beautiful in real life. So I guess it is not going to be an easy catch. But oh can't tell you how much I hope we will be the choosen ones.

And your photos makes it even more appealing. Please let it be you who get this beautiful piece, so we all can enjoy it through you. MT

The kakelugn is breathtaking beautiful.

Rebecca said...

That place looks perfect for you! I am in a similar state of agonized waiting with an apartment and it is so hard. Keeping my thumbs pressed (as they do here) for you. All the best!

Flotsam Friends said...

Oh Gosh, this is pure perfection. How wonderful it is, just the way it is. What a character!! That wallpaper just everything. I'll keep my fingers crossed and I totally agree with you... PLEASE not the knocker-downers or the modernisers... May fate that it's course... Pruxxx

Leililaloo said...

OOh man this is the real deal! It's a dream house just like you would picture a dream house when you would speak about or dream about one. And looking at the pictures and reading what you said about it, it feels like it's meant to become yours. It's like everything you make, sensitive, delicate warm and stylish. It reminds me of the china you decorated with Camilla Engman a while ago. I'll keep my fingers crossed from Amsterdam :))

jOhanna dunKer said...

Spännande,men jobbigt det måste vara att behöva vänta på svar...Hoppas på er...
