Camilla Engman & Our Swiss Heater

I know it's still summer, so talk of Swiss heaters is CRAZY. But I wanted to show off my new Camilla Engman prints that I've hung behind our Swiss heater. Don't they look fab here?

I really love them as a set and I think they go great with our red couch. I hung them with 3M removable hanging tape that has one velcro side and one sticky side. It's pretty clever. My Mactac co-workers from my college internship in the pressure adhesives industry don't need to know I am using 3M now do they?!

The more we settle in here, and the more time I have to put together all our (my!) fabulous IKEA finds, I'll post more photos of our Swiss apartment. Wait, who am I kidding? I have plenty of time - just not for cleaning! Anyway, for now, all you get is this lovely 4 set of prints from Camilla and our little pot belly slove. Lovely.

P.s. If someone knows how to work this thing come winter, please post a comment. That way I have a few months to figure it out. Thank goodness this isn't our only source of heat!

Oh and the plant is from... you got it - IKEA. I love it. The leaves are little curls. The frames... IKEA!

I have been wanting to buy those prints for a while now. I have read her blog for months. She is so talented.

I am so jealous you have an Ikea!

What a great idea! Velcro stick tacks... Where did you get them? I can't find anything useful at the Coop.

To be honest, I brought the velco tacks with me! I bet they would have them in the Migros Bau and Hobby shop though. Have a look there first!

Pumpkin Pie, I think I would travel up to an hour to go to an IKEA...and you're in luck, there is one within an hour of you!

Sounds like you need to take a road trip with a big truck! ;)
