Christmas prep

We’re awaiting Christmas and Old Town is starting to look like a fairy-tale! Inside our beautiful 18th century house we enjoy breakfast in the kitchen, while reading the morningpaper and making plans for food and gifts. It is a time of preparation and contemplation.

…and the scent of hyacinths are all over! With a planting bag made of environmental friendly, breathable polypropylene you can use your basket from Korbo Handwoven Wire Baskets for indoor planting. Here with white hyacinths and soft green moss, to protect the bulbs. Styling by Cia Wedin, photo copyright Anna Kern.

Sweet fragrance and sweet Mokkasin

With a planting bag made of environmental friendly, breathable polypropylene you can use your basket from Korbo Handmade Wire Baskets for planting indoors. Here I filled it with white hyacinths and protected the bulbs with a cover of soft green moss. This picture was part of a photo session for Korbo which took place at Sofia Janssons beautiful home in Katrineholm, a small town in the countryside south of Stockholm. From there Sofia runs the webshop Little Cute Mokkasin, as well as her sweet Mokkasin blog.
