it's oh so quiet

I know the mood of this collage is pink and purple and romantic and maybe calls for a slow melody but I wasn't able to put the song It's Oh So Quiet, here performed by Björk, out of my head this morning so I surrendered and added it to the post. After all I'm an Icelander and she is the most famous one. (Click the link below to watch the awesome video directed by Spike Jonze.)

How is everyone doing today? I'm at home with two children feeling ill, nothing serious though, just a classic cold. My role is mainly to boil water with fresh ginger and lemon for them to drink and handing out oranges.

  6. Seems I could touch that velvet sofa!... Hope your kids go better. Nice midweek!

  10. Ég fékk einmitt alltaf Heitt vatn með gingerrót þegar ég var ,,lítil,,
    Batakveðjur frá Vermont.

  11. I love Bjørk! Saw her perform this song at Roskilde sometime in the late 90's and it was a blast!

    And Icelandic smoked lamb sounds nothing short of amazing. Here in Norway we eat a lot of lamb ribs for Christmas but I have no idea what I'll be eating in Holland. Can't wait to go though :)

    Hugs and a happy Thursday!

  12. Beautiful collage, I love these colors together. I love Bjork too, her songs have a habit of staying in my head, so I can relate :) hope your kiddies are feeling better sonn xx

  13. aww that sounds like a nice job :) that's hubby's job right now too, since i'm one sick mama... speedy recovery to your kiddos!

  14. What a beautiful pink/purple combo. Love the details on the curtain in the first image!
    Hope your kids will feel better soon...

  15. Oooo, this is so amazing and you know why? Because this are the perfect colors that I adore and my new bathroom (don't laugh) is purple with pink and tonight I was planning a mega-trip (hahahaha) to Ikea to buy more purple accessorizes...Lots of lemon for the little ones ;)hope they are feeling good today!

  16. OMG, I want that sofa!!!

    The coughs and sniffles have decided to visit us. I just stocked up on lemons and ginger, too. (That is a cold/flu must-have in our house. I add a bit of honey, too.)

    Hope the colds move out of your home soon!

  17. Gorgeous curating, Lisa. Sorry to hear the little ones have been unwell x

  18. Such an exquisite collage, Lisa – moody and dreamy and romantic!

    Hope your kiddies are better now. xo :)
