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.

WALLS TABLE-TILES AND FLOORS

A PAINTING

I painted this picture of my mom (for my mom) 12 years ago. It has been tucked away in the attic since she past away. but I think it might be time for it to come down…

VINTAGE KITCHEN

While Michael is placing a new kitchen floor. the rest of the house (and workshop) is a big storage. This is a vintage kitchen-buffet-furniture from Germany. The freight to Denmark was easily more expensive than the cabinet it self. but to me it was all worth it. I think it’s fabulous.

Can’t wait for it to move in to the new kitchen. And I can’t wait to get some decent cooking and backing done soon. It’s been a while…

HALLOWEEN

Vilja is not into scary things -still in her princess phase as you can see. She decided to make herself a happy hello kitty pumpkin.

WEDNESDAY

BEDTIME

While Kornelius is being put to bed Michael and Vilja needs to be quiet. They read books and play puzzles in the ‘kitchen’ surrounded by tools, paint and dust…

HELLO

11 MONTHS

So big and yet so little…

QUIET ME-TIME

We have a HUGE mess going on here in the beach house. The Kitchen (once temporally bedroom) is under serious construction. Therefore we all live, sleep and eat in only one room at the moment -the living room (now living-room/bedroom/kitchen). We have the refrigerator beside our bed and the coffeemaker on top of our closet….

Kornelius still doesn’t like to nap during the day and every second week Vilja is here full time so I’m not much of a helper when it comes to construction work. Michael is on his own… However I did get a few moments of me-time today. Spend it in my workshop making preparations for our Tivoli -Christmas-shop while keeping in mind how important it is to really enjoy a quiet moment.

DESSERT

We had a meeting today. One of the good kind of meetings. Testing and talking about desserts! Not to early to start preparations for ‘Cirkus is’ 2015.

HAPPY WEEKEND

Saturday or Thursday I barely notice the difference. Everyday is spend working on the house.., Well almost everyday. yesterday we paid Samsø a visit.

PLAYHOUSE CURTAINS

Vilja and I made curtains for her playhouse today.

HOUSE AND GARDEN

This beautiful house and garden belongs to Michaels parents.

 

KITCHEN CEILING

KIDS ON WORK

Placing a new floor in our outside-living-room (once carport). The kids loves to spend time outside and this place makes it possible even when the weather is not on our side.

You can see the guest house on the left where Matthias (Michaels son) lives when he’s visiting and the back of the circus-caravan in the background on the right.

BATTLE OF WATERLOO

I’m newer gonna grow to old for miniatures.

Living far away from the big city makes flea-marked-visits much more fun. The other day we drove by a flea marked in the middle of nothing. Somebody bought an old manor and they didn’t know what to do about all the dusty old things inside…  Michael and I bought a bunch of old toys, some posters and some furnitures.

This is a reconstruction of ‘The Battle og Waterloo‘ (we think) …not that I needed one of those. But hey… :)

Any miniature-enthusiasts out there?

HE’S SO YUMMY!

Vilja calles her brother ’Bisken’ which is part of the Danish word ‘lækker-bisken’  -something you say about little mouthfuls that are really delicious.
