View Midsommarkransen in a larger map

a mini tour of my hood. möbelmakeri is such a great little interior design shop and felt like i discovered a little secret because it’s tucked away at ringdansvägen. they have everything from beautiful posters by danish silke bonde, diamond lights by eric therner to colourful washi-tape. super super nice shop and the shop also has a webshop..check it out here. the café ett skafferi at “skvallertorget” really wins you over with the large out door seating area and will say pretty friendly prices. next stop is the vintage store lyckliga gatan selling both funitures, clothes and everything in between. such great service and so many lovely things i wanted to buy. check out those glass fishing floats, those would look so good in the ombre macramés i’m making…will let you know when they are for sale in my etsy store. and what about that south american map. good stuff! almost next door you’ll find another vintage store vintage fabriken and it’s is oh so lovely. here you’ll find a great deal of 50’s style. check out that blue flower coffee cup on the second last picture i’m pretty sure a cup of coffee from that cup will tast amazing. and the row of dresses…so cute. here is a picture of the three lovely ladies owning this vintage heaven and links to their blogs. i’ve attached my google map of midsommarkransen where you can find a few other places. go on and check out midsommarkransen and let me know if you find something great i don’t know about!

went to statens museum for kunst and saw this piece by tomás saraceno cloud cities. some of the spheres are large enough to be entered by visitors…think that’s pretty amazing. the best coffee from kaffe og vinyl with great company. seeing the world through a kaleidoscope. our first and only snowman build this winter. the plan was to go to the zoo on christmas day with my parents but we all ended up going on a hike and some crazy tobogganing in mølle parken and brought home made glögg and vanilla christmas cookies… found a recipe for glögg at food52. more good days spend in skagen. outdoor lunch. for the love of succulents. det grå fyr (the grey lighthouse) in skagen is denmarks second highest lighthouse and very pretty i must say.

my old camping bike..now sold. picked up this little guy on our berry hunt. can’t wait for summer. hunting for berries and fruit in the wild is the best. this is from last summer. found the largest wild raspberry bushes at amager fælled. we had a feast eating the berries with coconut chocolate cake from my friends auntie who bakes amazing cakes topped off with a cup of tea. longing for summer.

air balloons in the skies

these three air balloons flew past my window the other day. pretty sure they had a spectacular view from up there. the pink balloon was massive. on the last picture you can see it has this large basket with a whole bunch of people in it. would love to fly around in one of those.

saturday we had great weather for a change and the city was buzzing. went to sneaker swap at trädgården and had smørrebrøds lunch. it didn’t beat halvvejen’s smørrebrød i wrote about here. so nice hanging in the sun, eating and hip hop blasting from the speakers. on our way home we stopped attantolunden where another girl was spinning records. she played a little danish hip hop as well with natasja…you can listen here.  totally girl power dj day.

flashback fridays | invitation to saga

got invited to attend the creative laboratory at saga furs design center vedbæk back in january. stayed for a week at their lovely old farmhouse and they took so good care of us. a week of pure creativity. the copper lamp koglen by arne jacobsen is pretty. and the last photo is of my favorite chair the spanish chair by børge mogensen.

took this picture of my new city from above back in september. an austrian food serving restaurant at hornstull…will have to check it out….and get back to you with review. beautiful rug. been reading these lately…you can find the great gatsby here the c.s. lewis book here, enough by john naish here and le petit prince french edition here . lunch: omelet with jerusalem artichokes fresh basil avocado and home made rye bread…this frittata sounds good as well. juxtapose. next door!  

this & that

old school orange volvo parked in our hood. the cinema bio rio opened back in 1943 pure funkis style. sol grillen placed on top of the venue strand. pretty old school tobacco store at reimersholm, they serve a straight up coffee you can drink outside at one of the tables. really cute stereotypical swedish house at långholmen. our local bakery bakes so good pain au chocolat. shop in the city selling snus. tunnelgatan…olof palme was murdered here at the tunnel mouth at sveavägen. did you check out the documentary palm about olof palme…really interesting:
