Hi, I am Mia and I live in Sweden where we are lucky enough to enjoy a variety of seasons each year.
When I am not working, I enjoy keeping up my blog “Solid Frog” and to work on my paintings. I’m happy that Charlotta is spending some lovely weeks in Sweden so I got the opportunity to make a guest post for her.
Autumn has just arrived and I love the humid but yet fresh air and the colours are amazing. I think I love autumn because of the total contrast to spring (which is my favourite season). It’s almost as beautiful outdoors now as it is when everything comes to life in nature in May. And the best is that you can stay indoors, light candles and just cuddle up in the sofa while the leaves are swirling outside.
I always get a special feeling of inspiration this time of year, last week it resulted in a visit to the garden centre (pics 1-7) to buy some plants that survives the autumn and winter period.
Swedish autumn also demands a pair of solid boots, these for my husband (11).
This october I’m looking forward to experience Ireland for a couple of days and I’m sure autumn is just as beautiful there.
Thanks Charlotta for inviting me for this guest post, I hope that you have a wonderful time in Sweden and that all your readers has a beautiful autumn wherever they are! Mia

Mia, tusen tack for this gorgeous post from our beloved Sweden! Your pictures are so nice and I love how you have captured Autumn, and of course also the ones from your home. The rug looks great and I share your love for black/white stripes, as well as candles and all the 'cozy factors' that come with the darkness of this time of the year. xx
To visit the stylish 'Solid Frog' please click on the banner above (you will love it!) and don't forget to view Mia's amazing paintings (HERE). I am so excited about having begun discussions about a purchase of one of her larger pieces when I return to Sweden next year..!

In a few days I have the pleasure to introduce you to Piper who blogs over at 'One Sydney Road'. This super nice and multi-talented girl (!!) is such an inspiration to me and it is an honour to have her in my c'yber corner' for a few days. Despite being in the midst of actualising her dream of opening a web shop (!!) Piper is posting here on 8th (Thank you again Piper!! xx) and I know you will love what she has to share!
Well my lovelies, my Swedish holiday is drawing to an end and with only one week left I am living it up to the full. Though I could stay here forever, I do look forward to returning to Spring and Sydney (Louise and DJ's Australian Spring-time posts got me very excited!!) and to be able to share the fun with you.
Big hugs to all!
