  1. It may be Winter there but the yellow, white and blue decor is so cheerful. We're in Central Florida, USA, having a very mild, rainy Summer so far. Have a great weekend!

  2. I love blue and yellow and really enjoy seeing the native dress.

  3. Hi,

    I am visiting from Thursday Favorite Things. Your candle centerpiece is lovely and the blue tablecloth compliments so well.

  4. I love the colors of the may pole and that lovely doll as well. The table cloth and candlesticks are the perfect touch to your table. Thank you for sharing at the Thursday Favorite Things Bog Hop xo

  5. It looks great. Love the candleholders and your yellow and blue with everything. I'm your neighbor on FMFPTY at number 37...hope you drop by for a visit. Thanks, Helen

  6. I love your gorgeous candelabra. I also love hearing all about your Swedish traditions and history. Your children are so lucky to have such a rich background!

    It looks like the sun is finally shining a little. Let's hope this weekend is a little warmer and nicer!

    Best wishes and thanks so much for saying G'day!

  7. Oh I love this post of swedishness which I know really, not a thing at all about. I can't wait to visit regularly and learn more.

    Following ya now from the Favorite Things Hop. We're riding the wave of life at one little adventure at a time and I'd love it if you'd join us for the sweet ride. And this Saturday we'll be peeking in to another sweet blogger's beach bag and launching our SUMMER Beach BAG Give away... I hope you'll join us.


  8. I adore your traditional blue and yellow Swedish treasures. Thank you so much for sharing your always pretty things with air your laundry friday! xo Jami

  9. Hi Pernilla, this to me is exactly what I would imagine Sweden to look like. The tablecloth is so sweet and I love the yellow and blue combination. The candlestick and May Pole are so very festive. Thanks for sharing with Share Your Cup.
