A Girl in a Workshop

A blog about creative living on the Swedish countryside. Almost everything can be reused. You can build what ever you want to. All you need is a creative mind and bravery. Also, having inspiring people around you helps. This is a blog about tiny living, stuff I work on in my workshop, about my jewelry i make in my forge, building maintenance of a 200 year old barn and house, farming, and a lot of other creative projects. Remember, I am not a pro, I am just not afraid to show my experiments and share my mistakes. Welcome to my world /Inga, a girl in a workshop

We love cooking in the kitchen and hanging out on our two kitchen benches. It’s like I finally realize how much I learned these past years – sitting here having a bouquet of meadow flowers I picked on the table.

And of course, it is, but it was still so exiting. Probably because I built it myself. And I can’t tell you how happy I am that it is done. If you want to see how it went, here is the video:
