I was knitting a scarf during the holidays, but after 1/3 of the scarf I thought that maybe I could use it around vases or pots instead.
Here you have the result…
I used the same cable stitch pattern as I used on the pillow that I made. But know I used thinner knitting needles and yarn. 
Have you knitted anything for your home lately?

Yesterday we actually had a moment of sunshine here in Oslo, and I had to capture it before the sun disappeared. The light was so delightful, and it gave me a good feeling – a feeling of spring!
If you missed my post on how I made this table, you can read it here.
I hope you will have a wonderful day my dear readers.

I´m in LOVE! House Doctor´s new collection is so cool, and it follow the trends of 2011 perfectly! 
Here you have a peek of some of their goodies..
The rustic and natural trend continues in 2011. I like how they mix it all together with fresh colors as shown underneath. Yes, we have a lot to look forward to this spring!
Their new collection is in stores early March, so we have to be patient.
I see so much that I want already – and I want it now!!
Do you see anything you like on these photos?
You can see their hole collection on their website.

When I was on Ikea this Saturday I found a dining table in the SALE corner. It was super cheap, so I thought I could use it as a coffee table after a makeover.
Makeover – what I did:
I went home and cut the legs in a length that I found suitable, then I treated the legs with driftwood stain and the top got painted white. 
Suddenly I had a coffee table with a look that I´m now very happy with!
The cushions in the sofa are the ones I made on Sunday. I made a circular pillow, and I finished the knitted pillow I have shown you a sneak peek of before! I need some more pillows though –  I feel that that sofa is a bit empty still.
What do you think?

It´s so nice to see that so many of you have entered todays giveaway already! I have signed up for the workshop myself and I´m really excited to learn some more about photography.

It seems that we have to wait quite some time for all our belongings that we have shipped from Los Angeles, so this weekend I had to be creative and handy(!), so we can have a “home” while we are waiting…
One of the things that I made this weekend was this dining table inspired by the lovely blog “Helt Enkelt”, and I´m very happy with the result. I got exactly the look that I wanted -rustic and cosy!

I got some old chairs from my mom, that I painted white. Cool, right?
Here is how our dining table looked like before when we lived in LA.
So what do you think? Have you made any furniture yourself before?
