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.

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

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.

GODNIGHT

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.

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…

WEDNESDAY

HELLO

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.

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.
