I've had this blog for a couple of years now, and along the way I've been trying to figure out the exact reason for why I keep having the urge to blog and share things I like. I still don't have a clue, other than the fact that I simply just like doing it. In that context I've also given the concept "blogging" some thought and even though I sometimes feel that too personal blogs can be somewhat distasteful and self-promoting in an unflattering way, I like those kind of blogs, where I can really tell the person behind it and get a small glimpse or insight in their life and what they do, the most! And since this blog haven't really revolved around me, I've given myself a 30 day challenge – the next 30 days, this blog will be more about me and what I do! I meant for the challenge to start on the 1th of june, but since that didn't happen, let's say the the 3rd is the challenge start!

I judge a book by it's cover, oh yes I do! – and yesterday I totally fell in love with the cover of the highly recognized book by danish author Carsten Jensen "Vi, De druknede" – and it's now a part of my ever growing collection of books (the purchase is totally due to the beautiful illustration on the cover, but since I heard it is great too I've already started reading and so far I like it)

Since I also have a thing for notebooks and have actually stopped counting how many I own, 
I ended up buying this great little notebook from Hay, and I'ts already been inaugurated with some small sketches and doodles..

The last picture is a small stilleben from a corner in my dining room; collection of cut-out-letters 
– letter B, Kaj Bøjesen monkey, pink Hay box, small Buddha from a trip to Thailand and a small beautiful table inherited from my grandmother.

I also have a thing for beautiful book covers. I tend to buy them if they are beautiful, even if I don't know the author. Usually it works out great. Love this amazing illustration!
