Houseguest: Cindy Krikawa

Ding dong... Please welcome this week's houseguest Cindy of quaint handmade. I've been meaning to invite my favorite bloggers over and after a couple of minutes on her blog a couple of weeks ago I finally said that's it. Stop procrastinating. Go on, ask her. I'm so happy Cindy found some time to stop by and share this special post with us.

Scandinavian Love
I'm so happy to be a guest on Heart Handmade, which is one of my favorite creative inspirations. When Marichelle asked me to create a post, I had several ideas running through my mind, but after seeing the beautiful Swedish movie, Everlasting Moments, the decision was easy. I'm a big fan of all things Scandinavian and chose some favorites I hope you will like, too.

1. Lavender Sachets by Inleaf
2. Queen of Sweden Rose by David Austin
3. Scandinavian Matryoshka Art Dolls by Ravenhill
4. Screen Prints by Sanna Annukka
5. Photography by Helena Söderberg

Cindy it was nice to have you over. Come by anytime!!

Cindy Krikawa
I'm a marketing guru and write about life in NYC with my dear husband Scott on our blog, quaint handmade. I also love to make things and take photographs. I find a lot of inspiration in anything from Top Gear to the Museum of Modern Art, but mostly from my incredible blogging friends, the handmade community and Flickr. I'm often afflicted with 'I want to do that, too' complex, which means I'm always into something new.
