Munching dragonflies in the kitchen...?!

No, not to worry, no insects were harmed in the production of this blog post...

I just thought I would dig out some photos from our kitchen from earlier this spring...

... to somehow bring the interior theme back into the blog, before...

... I go off on one of my garden musings again, or perhaps...

... simply give in to the urge to make hundreds of thousands of biscuits 
with my new dragonfly cookie cutter...!

Sooo, if you do not hear from me again for some time...
it is very likely I can be found somewhere near a beach...
with a face that says... 
"Who... me? 
No, I did not just eat eighty-three dragonfly-shaped biscuits!
Of course not.

Wishing you a lovely July week,
filled with your favourite biscuits!


  1. Tea please, and some dragonfly biscuits!

    Have a wonderful summer, dear Helena. We just came back from Denmark!


  2. oh yes!!! more, more, MOOOOOORE !!!
    miss your beautiful pictures of your wonderful home!

    hugs and have nice holidays!

  3. Wow! Din kreativitet har visst inga gränser - nu bakar du trollsländekakor också! :) Så fint de flyger med jordgubbarna!
    Ditt kök är ju som en dröm! Åh, så vackert!
    Ha en fortsatt skön sommar!
    Kramar från soliga torpet!

  5. Sweet dragonflies - and delicious! Lovely home. These are the days to enjoy outdoors and your garden is equally beautiful as your interior.

  6. Så vackra bilder Du alltid ger oss Helena.
    Jag tyckte Dina trollsländor var underbara. Jag önskar dej en fin sommar.
    Vill oxå säga att det blev en sammanblandning av två Helenor om Du tyckte jag skrev otydligt på Din blogg.Det blev till fel person, nu är allt klart.
    Kram till Dej

  7. The dragonflies look fab! I always read your blog but for some reason don't leave messages..I will do from now!
    I am foreign too so I feel identified many times on the view you have on things and how you describe places and ...
    Your house is beautiful and a quick question? where did you buy that beautiful zinc house (the one you can put candles's adorable!)
    I 'll be back!!
