Winter is here ♥

We finally have a proper winter wonderland in Stockholm, and here are some photos from yesterday’s walk. ♥

These last two photos were taken in Uppsala, where I’ll be studying for the next few years.

Second hand finds in Stockholm

One of the things (among many others, of course) which I really love about Stockholm is the amazing offer of second hand stores and after moving here I became quite a fan of buying second hand so here are some items I purchased recently. ♥

For some reason, I fell in love with old(er) tableware and I decided to pick up a few things. Since I like to drink tea and coffee, I got a coffee pot (I never had that so looking forward to using it!), different tea/coffee cups, a sugar bowl, a small milk pot, a few plates (didn’t photograph all of them) and wine glasses. I’m still looking for a tea pot. I’ve seen some but didn’t really feel like ‘that’s it’ so I skipped buying it for now. But I’m sure I’ll find something. :)

Also, I like how these stores have a nice selection of second hand yarn and buttons so I picked some of those as well. I have a few small knitting/crochet project on my mind and instead of buying new yarn I decided to buy second hand yarn and needles.

And, my last item in this post is a book about birds with descriptions and sketches, which is what I actually need since I want to work on my drawing skills. :) I got other books as well; I’m especially grateful for cheap dictionaries since those are really expensive if they’re new (like $100 but I paid less than $5 for used ones). :)
