And with all this new space in the living room Vilja has gotten a princess-like corner of her own..
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.
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…
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…
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.
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.
While Vilja and I make muffins. Michael tears down the house walls.
We have mowed our beds into the living room and out of the soon-to-be-eating-area-of-the-kitchen.
Days are getting shorter and we can really fell how nights are getting darker. Michael hung up this grandma-style-vintage-chandelier in the living room today.
Vilja has her own house and Kornelius has a car now. Privileged kids huh?
The weather has changed radically. Seems like summer is long gone already. When we woke up this morning it was all grey and cloudy so we decided to keep the ice cream shop closed for a day and get some painting done on the outside of the house. But then it started raining and we decided to make hot cocoa instead. Rain and storm continued and we went to a flea marked.
Kornelius got a ‘new’ car that lucky boy. It lacks a headlight in front. any ideas?
