The detail of time

September 1, 2012

My sister and I went to a reception yesterday. An old friend of ours is the editor of a beautiful new magazine about the 50ties. By reading this you can learn about how to host the perfect party, style your hair or sew a dress  -everything the 50ties way, of course!

The reception was held at an old glove-shop in Copenhagen called ‘Randers Handsker’ and this event was ALL 50ties. Drinks, dresses, invitation and surroundings….  look at that amazing snack-display!!! (recipe in the magazine)

I would love for all of you to read this. But it’s in Danish so I guess that leaves out quite a bunch huh?…

It is available to buy here! and in a little while it will be available in my shop too.

Okay… wrap out a billion boxes. Tidy up the overloaded stockroom. Red lipstick on, and I’m off for a girls night out with my sister. Couldn’t wish for a better agenda.

Have a happy Friday all.

The things you have time to when you are on vacation.

What I wore this week

July 22, 2012

Yep! it’s a blast from the past! And here I am…  The ‘What-I-wore-this-week-post‘ is back on.

Now: back to vacation.

Here I am…

June 20, 2012

Before and after I had a haircut today.

The necklace I’m wearing is new. I’ve made a few for the webshop and some for my reallife-shop too. They will be up sometime tomorrow or Friday.

Blog collage

June 14, 2012

I am putting together some pictures to put in my shop  for inspiration.  Do you like the idea?

The photostrip is from here. I edited it using GIMP and added pictures from my blog. The unevenness wasn’t on purpose but I actually like that part.

It’s a Brinja dress

May 23, 2012

This is a dress of my own design!

It has been beautiful dress-friendly weather in Copenhagen lately and I am planning to wear this model all through summer… It comes in five different flower prints and also in plain black, blue and dark green. Only in my real life shop so far. Still haven’t had enough leftover time to make the online part of my business work, sorry!!!

Note: You can find some of the styles I’ve made in my sisters shop too (but still Copenhagen, sorry again)

Aunt Brinja

February 24, 2012

Yesterday was a BIG day! Our little new cousin arrived… he is magically cute and just perfect. I have butterflies in my stomach going crazy over him -and over how proud I am to be his Aunt Brinja.

Freezing cold

February 2, 2012

It is freeeeezing cold today. This was how the it looked outside my window 5 minutes before closing hour.

Urgh cold cold bike ride… I’m home now -and warm.

Tomorrow is going to be a good day! Sleep tight. b

Painting the shop these days. Happy weekend all!

Knit sweater

January 24, 2012

This knit sweater is one of my favourites. I liked it so much back when I ordered winter clothing, that I bought way to many of them. Now it’s on sale in my shop.


December 6, 2011

I stopped by Rude with some dresses yesterday and spoiled myself with a new nail polish. Look at all those colours,.. how to choose?

Winter shorts

November 4, 2011

I have been wearing shorts a lot lately. They kind of make me look like a little boy, but I don’t find that too bad.

They are thick, woollen and high waisted (and from my shop)

Ps: There’s a new ‘Brinja København’ facebook page in action. You can join it by a click in the ‘I like’ box to the right.

Hej hej

October 19, 2011

I had a haircut yesterday. What did you do?

Swedish magazine

October 1, 2011

There are some pictures from our home in a Swedish magazine this month. They are not recent -as you can see, no sign of Vilja yet. Hope you like it.

Me today

July 22, 2011

Green shirt and wrangler jeans from ‘Rude’, second hand belt, Bird necklace (gift from Anders).

Road trippin

July 10, 2011

Anders and I are bike people -we don’t own a car (I don’t even own a drivers licence) but when we need a car for business or we fell the urge to go on a road trip; we rent one.

Our recent German adventures were by car. We arrived home yesterday and have been gone for a week.  Tomorrow I will show you some more vacation pics.

More Hamburg stuff…

July 8, 2011

1. Dinner at a side walk café. 2. Blue sky and green trees (One really should spend more time lying on grass staring into the sky) 3. Playground fun.

Simple simple

June 24, 2011

Still here…!

June 23, 2011

I am making necklaces… some for my own summer wardrobe and some for the shop. Tomorrow I will show you some more!

Rather special

June 14, 2011

The picture for this article was taken a long time ago… remember?

It as a series about women with special hobbies… like building your own home in miniature…

What’s going on…

May 16, 2011

Not much going on here other than the shop… Only photos I have at the moment is from there.


May 1, 2011

Spring is all over Copenhagen and after a long and cold winter the “copenhegeners” are enjoying the wonderful harbour area (Islands Brygge) where my shop is located. A sweet neighbour to the shop took these photos from her balcony, what a view. The blooming cherrytrees tells me that the warm weather is here for a long time.

Pictures of pictures

April 25, 2011

This magazine brought some pictures from our apartment a little while ago. I’m sorry for the very annoying can’t-really-see-anything pictures.  You know; photos of photos…

I hope you all had a wonderful Easter. Mine was just brilliant; family, sun and lots of good food.
