Final Thoughts on Scandinavia...and What I Bought!

Have you enjoyed vicariously traveling to Norway, Sweden and Denmark this week, friends?
I sure hope you have.  Before we head into the weekend, I wanted to share a few remaining observations I had about our time in Scandinavia. 
1. Well-designed candy was everywhere in Norway. I loved the retro look of Cuba & Hobby bars.
2. Converse hi-tops were on nearly every foot in Scandinavia. Classics like these never go "out".
3. Rarely did I spot a grocery store without an abundant option of flowers. This gal's envious.
4. Almost every Dane was on bike. Mimic their style with this adorable ride from Beloved Cycles.

Now, do you want to see what I bought?
I snapped a few photos of the treasures I found during our Nordic adventure.

There will be a touch of Scandinavia in my home for years to come.
And, if I can once more, I have to encourage every reader to visit this region at least once in your life. 
Happy weekend, all!


  1. Well, I guess there's no reason candy shouldn't be well designed! Your pretty new pillow captures your style perfectly and I am super excited about all the fabrics, too!

  2. LOVE the Bungalow fabrics--nice score!


  3. Ashley, I love all your finds and am so excited to get back into blog reading and find out what you've been up to on your trip (and more)!

  4. Love the pillows and the fabrics and the apothecary jars. Well, I love it all. Oh, and this reminds me I need to break out my orange Converse. You've definitely moved Scandinavia up on my list of places to go. It looks lovely -- and like a fairly easy place to travel.

  5. Hey Ashley - You have a really cute blog here! I came across it just by clicking on your link on a NotetoSelf comment (I find the best new blogs this way sometimes). Adding your blog to my Bloglovin list!

  6. Welcome home, it looks like you had a wonderful trip!
    I agree, souvenirs that you can enjoy and use every day are the best kind. Great finds.


I'd love to hear your thoughts!
