Lisa & Viktor’s Swedish Castle Wedding Photo by Therese Winberg

Perhaps it’s all of the Swedish crime novels I’ve been reading lately, with their moody, descriptive tones and icy-cool settings, or perhaps it was the wedding above that did it – but I’m suddenly racked with the desire to head over to the Nordic region and get all film-noir on myself! The shades of white and grey, with pops of green and brown I just can’t get enough of.  And I usually hate the cold! It would also be probable that the gentleman of the region wouldn’t be too hard on the eye also… But I digress!

This week has flown by in a flash, so if you missed anything (be it Swedish castles or DIY magic), then here is a complete roundup from the week that was!
