We are back again...







We are back again from France.

We returned just before the airport closed down because of snow.
Can't believe we just left this beautiful light.

Away we go



We are leaving for France.

This lady has given me lots of fantastic insider tips :)
I am looking so much forward!

Preparing for France...




Not that we are going to Paris, and not that we are from New York - but still...

We are preparing for our trip to France and my boyfriend found these lovely illustrations at Paris versus New York.

Longing



Frida Viola is sick today.

I am longing for light and summer.

The room upstairs



This is the tiny room upstairs in my grandparents' house where my dad and his sister used to sleep.
I spent hours in this room in my childhood.

The place has been empty for years now.
We visited it last summer - wish I took some more photos.

Little collection

 



Little collection of hair clips.

Most of them from my childhood, some of them second hand finds.

The blue butterflies I had for my aunt's wedding. I was 7.
I still use them once and a while.

Pile



One of the many piles in my home.

Kunstskyld!



I found this note on one of my walkings.
I guess it only makes sense in Danish - but I like it.

Freezing




I still love these knitted and croched hats found in Peru and Bolivia some years ago.

The colours so delicate and the alpaca wool so soft.

Pocket Industries by Henriette Heise - so fine! I must go to her opening Friday. Do also visit some of her fantastic pockets and drawers.

Oslo # 2 - The Country House





I was so lucky to visit this fantastic house in the countryside outside Oslo while in Norway.

The building is a very beautiful old military property in the middle of the forrest.

There is no heating in the house and it was freezing cold while we were there. The electronics in my camera froze so the photos are taken with my iPhone.

House in the clouds and lot's of other fantastic sceneries from ijm found via Sabine.

New website at Mieke Willems.

The Maid's Room



A's sister lives in a fantastic old apartment.
At the very top of the building is where the maid's room used to be.

This is where we sleep when we visit A's family.
I love this room.
