Pine cone decoration

October 31, 2012

Here is a simple idea for you!

Materials used : cotton string, vintage beads,  a pine cone and that’s it…

I have made a bunch of these for the shop too. If you’re not up for the making-part.

Good news

October 26, 2012

My pc charger is back and so am I! Oh, what a relieve that was.

Remember how I told you a long long time ago I was working on something new?  Well, I was and I still am… It’s a new blog! -or a new blog layout at least.

I’m getting help from my sweet (and might I add very very skilled) big brother… but the thing is we are both busy busy people and time is not what it used to be… it takes time… but but but, within long, hopefully, this blog will have a new and much prettier look.

I’m not sure what has happened, but the pictures on this blog all of a sudden went nuts and changed sizes yesterday???  I didn’t do anything…. Does not look very good. Argh! Hopefully it will get back to normal again…

Sleep tight.


Still missing

October 25, 2012

I had hoped to avoid getting to know Anders computer. But my blog-craving has become too strong. And it seems my pc charger has decided to stay at a hotel in Germany for a lot longer than we did!

After a visit to at least 10 different stores looking for a replacement, it turns out that not just any charger will do. I cant get the one I need… My hope is, that it will show up in the mail soon. Fingers crossed. Until then Anders pc have to do!

Here are a peek at some Christmas stuff I’ve made for the shop this week.

We have been at a party today, celebrating my beautiful nephew Linus name… unfortunately I forgot my camera and once again you guys are left with pictures from the shop.

Happy Saturday everyone. Hope all is good!

A big change

October 5, 2012

Anders and I have made quite a big change in our everyday live recently. Anders is no longer a full time teacher! he is now part time self-employed at ‘Brinja Kbh’ and part time teaching.

From the very beginning of the shop more than 7 years ago, he has been a big part of the business. But work, in and around the shop, keeps growing and growing. And at the same time, we have tons of new ideas, but not enough time to make them real.

Hopefully this way, we will be able to do many more exciting new projects together.

Have a happy Friday all.

Glimses of today

August 29, 2012

New windows in the shop = no more worries about cold winter days. A sweet neighbour of the shop stopped by with that beautiful zucchini -just because. And Cecilia on the picture, had her first shift today.

Flea marked finds

August 23, 2012

I went to a flea marked last weekend while Anders, Vilja and I were on a short summerhouse getaway.

These old marked finds were so dusty, Vilja and I had to bring out a water hose.

Making room

Next generation

August 20, 2012

Vilja is quite the little store-manager! She sure knows her way around the place and she talks about it as her shop.

When she gets tired from all the hard work she makes herself a carpet-bed and takes a nap.

Ps: If you life in Denmark my sister has a great giveaway going on on her blog!

Greens and vegetables

August 15, 2012

Yesterday as an attempt to get away from all the billion things on my to-do list, I decided leave it all at home and take Vilja on a spontaneous trip to where the air is fresh and the food is fantastic. My parents place.

5 minutes walk from their house this activity-playground-place was waiting for our first visit.

Now I want to go back there too…

A little help?

July 16, 2012

A great thing about summer (although it doesn’t really fell like summer at the moment) is that I get to meet some of all you bloggers and readers out there.

Today Stéphanie from France stopped by the shop. last week I had Malene visiting and the week before that  Katja from Germany was here. I have had the honour of meeting many more of you, but I seem to have lost track along the way. So sorry! Please say hi again and leave me a note so I can refresh my memory. That would be great!
