Break Down

Ltd #artscarf "Channel" by SchimJolie
Good thing I had ELLE and could read about our beloved Crown Prinsess,  HRH MM, in Ltd #artscarf «Channel» by SchimJolie on the hood of SchimBo :D

Did I mention when our Land Rover Defender, Schimbo, broke down in the middle of nowhere?

Well, that’s not exactly right, but we were far out. We had by coincidence ended up at one of Norway’s few wine yards called Kvelland VinGård in Lyngdal.

After seeing the Alpacas at Lista we were recommended to take a look at the wine yard to get inspired.

We were lucky and got hold of the farmer who showed us around and let us take pictures.

He also told us about the spiritual evenings he organized in the function house and told us to come one day.

We were going to leave, but then SchimBo refused to start!!!!

We turned the key, but not even a sound came out of SchimBo, who had been so happy to be taking us out to a different country side!

The car does have soul, and we also started to think about the spiritual affairs going on here, but to what end?

«You can check out any time you like but you can never leave…Welcome to Wine Yard Kve-e-elland!» hahahahaha

Anyways we tried to run it, to tow it, but no life! So we had to call Falken and after an hour or so the tow car came and took us to Mandal!

And the story will continue another time course in Mandal we learned some more interesting things!

Here are the photos from our adventure at Kvelland Gård:

GIVEN THE STRENGTH TO CARRY ON

Ltd #artscarf  "One In a Million" is about how unique and precious each and every one of us are!
Sneak Peek! Ltd #artscarf «One In a Million» is about how unique and precious each and every one of us are in our own special ways!

Amazing things continue to happen in the «Silk Cocoon» (read Le Petit Country Shop). And I’m going to tell you one of the stories.

Last month I was contacted by a woman, I did not know her at all, but she had seen my beautiful Ltd #artscarf collection on the web and she wondered if it was possible to see them «live»? I told her to come at Le Petit Country Shop on Sunday and she agreed, but told me to give a hint if there was any chance to come by earlier.

And as it happened I had an appointment for thursday, to help two other ladies to pick their silk scarf, so I told her to come at 18:00, if she could.

I tell you, she was so happy about it, and five to six she arrived in the Country Shop at Strai. She entered the «cocoon», stopped half way in and just gazed. She was totally amazed by the atmosphere and all the silky babies hanging around smiling and flirting with us.

 «Oh my god! They are gorgeous», she cried with a low voice filled with enthusiasm.

«How much are they?» 

I knew she must have seen the price on the SchimJolie website, but I told her!

Holding her hands to her face, smiling with sparkling eyes, she said clear and firm:

«I’ll take two! And..», she continued with an even bigger smile pointing at the lovely «Different Rose» No.1/250 «…I’ll also have one of your gorgeous #artpillows!!!!» 

I just can’t describe how happy I was to meet with this passionate person who understood the art and the silk and the concept Ltd #artscarf by SchimJolie

This one of a kind woman, she really made me feel like I’m doing something right.

She was an angel sent.

Because at times it is hard to keep up the phase and make everything work all by yourself. Sometimes the doubt comes sneaking and you wonder if you are just making a fool of your self…

But she made it all soooo worth while.

She gave me the strength to carry on!

 We selected two scarves, and as we did, she winked at me and said:

 «These are just the two first ones, I’ll be back for more.» 

I’m crying of happiness as I’m retelling this story, because it is so important and it means the world to me to get this kind of credit after all the hard work and effort put in.

Though I have a saying that keeps me going because it is true..

«If it means it doesn’t mean anything to anyone else in the world but me – that’s enough! Have faith and believe in your self!» -Ingrid Himberg

…doesn’t change the fact of the good feeling when what I create means something to others, too!

And when it is appreciated with genuine words, a body language not to be mistaken, I’m filled with pure plain wonderful complete happiness!

This absolutely stunning, beautiful woman also described to me, with passion, how she would lay them out over her sofa when she came home, and how she would pour a glass of red wine and just enjoy admiring them. I can’t tell you how home she had come.

I have the exact same feelings about the silk scarves, every single one of them, means so much to me! And the feeling just keeps growing as I work with them. Working with their pictuers, telling their story.

I never get tired of putting them on, ironing them up, packing them down, with love, to go to new homes. It’s an amazing experience. And meeting up with a silkysoulmate like her, just made my day, week, month, year!

As she left with the scarves, she whispered to me with a happy voice «I’m so filled with joy and I’m over excited about these scarves, right now I have heart beats!»

I told her I know the feeling!
