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.

view from the terrasse. coffee with the best friends at the broken arm…we heard the coffee was amazing and it was and can add the cheesecake was fantastic as well. also had a little peak at their shop next door and must say i saw some goodies…just looking though. had a lunch picnic on one of the boats going out from pont neuf. a view of paris from montmartre. la basilique du sacré coeur de montmartre. signs. brought presents wrapped in swedish/norwegian map. great wine and lovely company at chez zanou.

paris part I

paris03 paris04paris08paris09 paris10paris11paris19paris05had a great time visiting friends in paris. the weather was so and so but coffee and croissant was flowing so it didn’t matter. a peak into the apartment we rented and the view from the terrasse. it was just what we wanted and close to everything. we always use airbnb when we travel. really like the feeling of living in a “real” apartment. you can find the one we rented here. went to e. dehillerin an old kitchen supply shop…feels like your stepping into another time and place. never got the chance to go to the beef club but peeked in and the interior looked super cozy. an unmarked black door to the left of the restaurant will lead you downstairs to their cocktailbar called ballroom du beef club…not to shabby! patterns. a cup of café crème at cafe de centre at montorgueil. mairie de paris.

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.

discovering our city | gildas

they do love their fika [fee-ka] here in sweden. translated it’s coffee and cake break and who dosen’t love that combination! the other day we went to gildas to enjoy fika. had the carrot cake and blueberry crumble and it was good. really like the idea of serving the whipped creme and custard in old vintage coffee cups. found some old art deco coffee cups at etsy here and what about these pastel cups here you could use for the purpose.
