CROWDED PLACE

When I found my Copenhagen apartment while Anders and I was splitting up. I was convinced it was going to be just Vilja and I for a while. This was the perfect two-room-place for us.

Newer had I imagined how the two of us would become four,  -less than 2 yeas after…

…at the moment we have a stockroom/bedroom and living room/kids room. lets just say things are a bit crowded around here.

DOLL BED DISPLAY

It’s not that easy to see my jewelery when you pass the shop. But top right corner! in Viljas doll bed. She and I made the display together and she was okay with the ‘donation’. A sacrifice for the bigger purpose you know :)

I have very little computer-time at the moment and it gets dark outside before I can fetch the camera out of my purse… grrr…!  miss blogging. and miss a good cup of coffee…. most of all I miss the beach house. Already.

DIY CROWN

This was before we moved to Copenhagen. Pink is still her very favorite!

Materials: toilet paper roll, glue gun, deco tape, bows/diamonds/beads and elastic cord.

TIVOLI SHOP

We did make it in time. First day of Christmas-tivoli was Friday. Always lots of little adjustments with the finish during the first week or two. but we are happy with the result so far and (luckily) very busy people.

ON THE WAY…

1. On the way to kindergarten 2. on the way to Tivoli 3. going home from kindergarten 4. home.

And I almost forgot to say. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU for all your great tips and ideas about the front of the Circus caravan. I look so much forward to do something about it as soon as Tivoli is over.

CHANGE

Grandma Jonna is ‘house-sitting’ while we have mowed to Copenhagen for a few months!

We have spend all week driving back and forth from the beach house to my little Copenhagen flat. And now we are counting down for tivoli and our christmas-shop to open this weekend… while I’m at home with the kids at night Michael is at tivoli. building up the shop. It’s always a race against time to beat the deadline. but hopefully we will manage to be ready by Friday without to much stress.

LATE NIGHT WORK

This is my workshop. My very chaotic workshop. When Kornelius is asleep at night and Vilja is at Anders place we sneak of to the workshop Michael and I.

Michael made the vintage-fruit-box-stand for outside our Tivoli shop. The beautiful old wood boxes was a treasure he found on the attic when he bought the beach house and the metal frame underneath is a flea marked find. leftovers from some old garden furnitures -i think.

I’ve made piles of jewelery during the last couple of weeks. It’s my kind of meditation. whenever I can squeeze in a moment.

HAPPY

CIRKUS IS

The ice cream circus looks a bit sad when it’s closed down. I have wanted to do something about that big blank pink overhang ever since we made it. but I’m not sure what… a logo or a drawing, maybe some writing?… any suggestions?

TIVOLI PREPARATIONS

Preparations for this years Tivoli-christmas-shop is full-on. Our paper-star stock arrived today.

A PRETEND B-DAY

We threw Kornelius a birthday party last Friday. His real birthday is tomorrow. but Vilja doesn’t know and because shes spending this week at Anders place we decided to make it a pretend birthday while she was here instead.

Kornelius had a blast. He got power tools!

FROM THE PAST

Believe it or not -but I didn’t pick the wallpaper for our kitchen… or… I did actually pick it out. because I bought it on a local flea marked during summer. But Michael made the decision to put it in our kitchen.

FAMILY

We have have had the best weekend ever! Went to Copenhagen and had a double sleepover at aunt Siggas place.

GODNIGHT

SILLY BERRIES

It seems almost unnatural. but we still have raspberries in the garden… Don’t they know it’s almost winter?

BIG BOY

My baby boy is no longer a baby. Next week we will be celebrating his very first birthday.

EATING NOOK

IN THE LIVING ROOM

And with all this new space in the living room Vilja has gotten a princess-like corner of her own..

A NEW KITCHEN

Big changes around the house these days. Kitchen floor is done and the furnitures from all around us can be moved back into their right place. Phew… this has been quite a challenge. all four of us having only one room to live, eat and sleep in and no functional kitchen. We still have to sleep in the living room until the first floor is done. But with this new kitchen+eating area – thats perfectly fine with me.
