The 11th of February

The 11th of Feburary is Mattias' birthday. But not only! It is also the day Elsa Beskow was born, 100 years earlier than Mattias.
Short said, Elsa Beskow is a Swedish author of children books, which she also illustrated. I haven't read anything of her, so I can't say so much about her books, but her drawings are very pretty and Mattias points out all the time that they are "jugend-inspired". And we know we are into our jugend phase, although we are not young anymore, especially considering that Mattias turned 40 this year ;-) (jugend means young!)

Mattias' present
Design House Stockholm has created a line of products with Elsa Beskow's drawings as inspiration. Mattias got 4 mugs and a kitchen towel.
