My favorite things about fall


Why fall is my favorite season. It might have something to do with the fact that my birthday is October 10 and that Halloween is great but what really is fall. It is more time spent inside knitting, reading or maybe watching a scary movie that we love. It is time to reflect on the joys of summer and all the fun we had. Fall is days that are cold enough for a sweater but warm enough for a skirt. It is time for long conversations with family and friends. It is the time for hot drinks and orange things.

My favorite fall things

  • Knitting, crocheting or any other crafting
  • Hot tea with honey
  • Baking
  • Going for walks and breathing in the fresh air
  • Reading
  • Scary movie marathon
  • Finding leaves on the ground
  • Snuggling with our dogs

My bedroom


My room has been a work in progress for a long time now. My room was very narrow so i could not fit my wardrobe and my desk in the room at the same time and i did not have a door. So my dad decided that we should make it bigger, There was a lot more work than we anticipated and my dad has built it without any help so it turned out to be a longer and bigger project than we thought. But it is almost done and i almost can’t wait to start decorating. One of my favorite things to do is to decorate and i wanted to start with a clean slate. We decided to paint all the walls and the roof white so the room would feel light and spacious. The only piece of furniture that i already own that is going to my new room is my night stand so i have quite a bit of shopping to do on a small budget. One of the most important things i need in my room is a good work space and a lot of storage. I love to sew, knit, draw and make DIY projects so i have a lot of materials to store away. I am still looking for a DIY desk solution so if you have any ideas please tell me. Here are some of the things i want for my room and some inspiration.


I plan on making a peg board storage solution to hang over my desk.


This is the bed i am planning on buying from ikea


I have a bit of an obsession with brass lamps

cream closet - wide eyed legless

I want to make a hanging clothing rack of some kind

I love quilts and i am drooling over the quilts from Hopewell Workshop

If you have any ideas please tell me šŸ™‚

The garden and our dogs

I spent the day in the garden with my family painting and taking pictures of our sweet dogs. The weather has been so nice to us lately and i want to enjoy it as much as i can, our winters are very long and dark her in Norway so a bit of sunshine and heat is something that is very much appreciated. Our dogs where rolling on the freshly mowed lawn and soaking up the sun. We are going camping tomorrow and we are bringing the dogs so i will try to take more photos then.

I thought i should start this blog by telling you a little about myself. My name is Sol Maria and i am 18 years old, i live in the Norwegian countryside with my mother, father, little sister and our two dogs.I love doing creative things such as cooking, sewing, knitting and lots of other stuff. I am also a feminist and a vegetarian. I have always loved reading other blogs and i am not going to lie i have tried this blog thing a couple of times before and it always ends with me forgetting it for a couple of months and then my interests have changed so much that my blog no longer is what i want it to be. So what is so different about this time, well this blog is going to be more personal and i am not going to be so strict with myself. I want this blog to be a place where i can post things that inspire me and the things i experience going through life. I will be posting recipes, DIYs and snippets from my daily life and probably a lot of random things. Our family likes to travel a lot so i will try to document my travels as much as possible on this blog. Well i think this is enough for now.

Sol Maria.
