My name is Maria Simonson, and I live in Oakland, California. This blog is a chronicle of my life.
I have an Etsy store where I sell my jewelry and organic cotton, natural dye wraps and scarves as a way to keep the maker in me busy and make a little extra cash. I’m making a life quilt , like most of us do.
You are welcome here, to follow along in my journey; follow me to the Swedish West Coast in the summertime, and hibernate during winter in my Oakland apartment with me, Lilian and our cat Lizzie. Follow me as I firmly hold on to my Scandinavian identity and still try to embrace the Californian in me.
