Margaux turning 9!

Today was Margauxs 9th birthday!! She has been looking forward to this day SOOO much. I remember this as a kids - the days leading up to my birthday were so slow. And then laying in bed in the morning waiting, waiting, waiting for the family to come celebrate!

Luckily I am the producer of reusable fabric giftbags so wrapping gifts is NO problem at all in our house! I adore the Children’s Collection, that I have made together with an amazing Swedish artist Ingela P Arrhenius. As I think Ingela is a genius I am so grateful that she wanted to work with Bag-all! Ingela has made the animal prints and I have made the graphic prints. This is the Kid's Collection

We made 11 packages for Margaux!

Micke made cake from muffins with whipped cream and strawberries. As we didn’t have any candle holders we made x:s at the top of the strawberries and stuck them in there.

The gang heading up to Margaux! Luckliy for Margaux her uncle, my brother, Rustan was here for her birthday. Rustan is an amazing artist, here you can check out his work: Rustan!

 Yesterday the weather was amazing, cold, but sunny!! We took a walk to East Harlem as my brother haven’t been there. I love walking around in Harlem. There are som many beautiful old buildings. Some blocks are completely untouched with buildings in their original state. Some might think these are run down, I think they are beautiful. Of course there are blocks that are very ugly in Harlem as well.

Love the red fire escapes on this building!

This is Lexington Avenue at 116th Street. The atmosphere could not be more different up here from the fancy neighbourhoods around 59th Street where Bloomingdales is located. Different worlds, same street.

There are also some excellent restaurants in Harlem. This place on Lexington Av and 116th Street (North/West corner) has the best guacamole I have ever had!
