Our Visit to Nina Hartmann's Villa, Shop & Farm

I'm sharing a few photos from our trip to Scandinavia today.  It's taken quite a while to get all my photos in order as I took hundreds (wouldn't you?).

My Petite Maison at Nina's Villa

We were so blessed, my friend, Nina Hartmann, the interior decorator, antiques dealer and author invited us to stay at her home while we were in Sweden.  It was truly the trip of a lifetime.  5 days with dear friends at their home, newly purchased farm and the beautiful boutique.  It was an amazing visit, I will be sharing more as time allows, I know you'll love it as much as we did while there!

My Petite Maison at Nina's Villa

Nina set out the most delicious Scandinavia breakfast.  We all ate at the large antique kitchen table, then spent the day at a dealers only antique fair and brought back items for my boutique.  I had to keep pinching myself, such good times!

Yes, I fell in love with sweet Olga.  All Nina and Tore's pets/family were so friendly and welcoming.

Nina's beautiful living room.  I can not begin to show you the size of this amazing room.  I will be sharing different shots, it was like being on a movie set • I am not kidding (one little bit!).

Antique greenhouses in Nina's veranda.  Isn't the forest beautiful too?  This is the view where we ate our meals in the evening.  Perfect, like a dream!

Sweet Albert at dinner.  We had a special dinner of crayfish and the native AquaVit.  It was so fun and delicious, we sang songs that Tore taught us (Tore plays the grand piano & is very talented!).  We stayed up much later than we should have, but would do it again in a heartbeat!

So many cupboards filled to the brim with treasures!

More coming soon...  We're off to enjoy our weekend.  Hope you enjoyed this short visit to Nina's villa!

Thank you for visiting today!
