Yes, as you know – we have started building houses. Or that is house-planning. * Smiles! For it is sooo much to think about in such a process, and we want to make sure everything is perfect before proceeding with the actual framing.
The house I / we sign itself, both exterior and floor plans. All based on what our own ideas and preferences. And based on these sketches have a skilled building architect designed a perfect house for us.
I can reveal that there is a large and elegant house in true Swiss style. House has a footprint of about 180 square meters and two storeys with a hip roof – gable roof is not really typical of the original Swiss style.
This picture gives a small indication of how the house will look like. Both the front and back, we have chosen a large porch / branches / veranda buildings, like this picture. Our house will be slightly higher than this foundation and a small frontporch on the back at the entrance.
The front will have a large and sunny terrace on the first floor, which extends beyond the lawn.
The house also has hip roofs and large, high windows in the second floor – in contrast to this house.
There will be many white tofløyde interior doors in the old style, several of the rooms are located in the file, and it made room for both the stove in the living room and an open fireplace in the kitchen.
Are there others who wish to build a similar house I can recommend the following websites:

Easter is just around the corner, and as with so many other festivals we can not get away with some decorating and decorating around the house.
Although the correct color scheme definitely would have been yellow now for Easter – it is unfortunately not so much to find the color here in this home.
However, I have picked birch twigs and found the easter egg I won at Anette House last year. I do not think it’s that bad considering that my health is worse than ever and my wedding is only three weeks away! Whew!
I actually struggled with sinus infections since Christmas, and all pencillinkurene have put the entire immune system and especially the stomach completely out of sorts – so there is nothing seriously wrong. The whole thing is just really annoying not to mention tiring and painful!
But I bet now that I’m on the mend!

…. and it is wonderful! On the veranda the temperature reached 20 degrees this afternoon. But as it blew a gale, and then some outside – I kept myself indoors. Which suited me so well, since this is the first Friday in a long time that I have not been sick or had errands in connection with the wedding. It is actually nice to just relax completely. Not having anything on the agenda!
The other day I ordered some beautiful wreaths from the store, beautiful home – I have not regretted a second. They fit just as well because here in the window, as I had hoped for. Wreaths are genuine and are made so that they will stay for long. Something I really hope they do.
Ps: As you can see, there’s a new button, Swiss Villa, the menu bar. That’s because we finally started building houses. At least the paper brass (among other things, my sketches become real hustegninger). More Info. comes later!
HAVE A WONDERFUL WEEKEND ALL TOGETHER ♥

Yes, it was time to blog again. Notice that it is not always easy to ‘find the’ something to write about. Good motives are found not every day – at least not me!
There is fortunately the spring here in Southern Norway. The days are getting longer and brighter, and most are now starting to get out of a very small vintderdvale. For this winter has been tough and long here in Southern Norway.
Plans are also many. In exactly one month follow my dad me up the aisle. I’m going to marry me. There – now it was published, also here on the blog! Planning has been going on in full swing since around Christmas. The dress has been purchased, Jimmy Choo shoes from the Northern Troms is purchased, party venue, flowers, etc. are also in the box.
This is a typical my / ourwedding. Wallstickers on the wall, monograms, romantic cupcakes in soft pastel colors, a classic three-storey wedding cake in white marzipan. Decorated with roses, ribbons and eat only the beads.
Poor man’s silver on the tables, high five-armed candelabra in silver, roses, cones, Norway glass, lace and white upholstery ….. – Wow me, there is much to be arranged!
