Idyll – Home and Garden Design 2019

Det var solnedgang
Det var latter, det var sang
Det var sommerfri
Det var sjø og magi
Det var deg og det var meg
Det var minner som aldri vil dø
Det var evighet
Og en sol som farga himmelen rød

Postgirobygget – Idyll
We found idyll through EED’s All Aboard Island

Norwegian summers are short, especially in the north where I live. Some summers are not even warm! Makes it very easy to appreciate days like this, where you can stay outside all day and night and you know; when the sun is shining, it shines bright not just all day but all night too. Idyll to me is to be watching the midnight sun together with my beloved; on the shore, enjoying bonfire barbeque and ice cold beverages.

Get closer and stay close forever.

EED’s All Aboard Island is a group of rocks, palm trees, plants, a sitting area, bonfire, boat and birds on a sandy beach. It is a tropical idyll! You can find it and more oceanic themed creations from EED at the Home & Garden Expo which is open until April 7. Check out Mahogany’s blog post for more!

Close, by the fire – Home and Garden Design 2019

Sometimes this is exactly what you need

If camping in the wilderness is not your thing, you would perhaps appreciate spending an afternoon or an evening in the Happy Camper by EED. We made camp on my home parcel so we didn’t go very far, but we did build a fire and spent the evening together, enjoying the closeness and keeping the every day drudgery at a distance.

EED Happy Camper for the Boardwalk event.

EED’s Happy Camper set is a group of birch trees, flowers and a tent with stringlights and cuddly blankets and pillows. It will cozy up any garden or campsite! You can find it now at the Boardwalk event which is open until April 15.

(There’s more, I know, but as this is my home parcel it is filled with grass, flowers and trees from way before I started blogging and not all items have the correct names on them.)

The Act of Clothing – Home and Garden Design 2019

“Pretty is an accident of nature. Elegant is a self-created work of Art.”


Being Caballero
“Take all the time you need, love…”

She has hundreds of outfits in her closet and she looks good in everything, but she can’t find anything to wear! While I most of the time just get dressed, there seems to be a much deeper, comprehensive philosophy behind her choice of attire. With the quote “Elegant is a self-created work of art” in mind, I know that creating art often takes time and you toss aside plenty of drafts before you’re able to express what you pictured in your mind. So when she can’t find anything to wear, it has nothing to do with thinking it doesn’t look good (you can say she looks fantastic umpteen times but it doesn’t matter), but rather because she doesn’t know what she wants to express that day or the expression doesn’t match what she pictured in her mind. Thus the act of clothing is the creation of art! Am I on to something, or am I just on something? Either way, I do appreciate and admire fine works of art and when she’s finished getting dressed, I swear, that’s what she is; breathtakingly beautiful and I can’t keep my eyes off of her.

On My Own – Landscape Architect 2019

On My Own Stone by Exquisite Eye Decorations

As a way of recharging my batteries I’ve always liked going on nature hikes, long or short doesn’t matter as long as I get away from the noise of the city. I find a nice spot with a nice view and just sit and feel the beauty surrounding me, taking it all in; the fresh air, the smells and the sounds. Meditation, almost. If I’m on my own I sometimes listen to music, it always sounds and feels much more intense when you have an amazing view added to it.

The “On My Own Stone” by EED is perfect for some quiet time by yourself. I chose to use it on the beach on my parcel so I can sit and watch the ocean and the sunset whenever I need to recharge after a busy day.

It’s a beautiful piece of rocks, grass and flowers. You’ll find 6 female and 6 male single animations in it and it only uses 7 Li! The “On My Own Stone” is available at the EED Marketplace.

A big thank you to my new sponsor EED!
