Somebody told me I have a great deal of readers from the Netherlands! Could you guys say ´hi´? -just for the fun of it…
Yes I noticed that too, greetings from a dutchie :)
uit Nederland de hartelijke groeten!
Hi, best wishes from the Neterlands.
Netherlands of course. I hope my translation in the card was better than this:).
Hi from Amsterdam!
Yeah here another one from Den Haag.
Hi from the Netherlands as well.
Your blog was named a while ago (about a year or so) in a small national news paper, maybe that’s why ;)
Hi from The Hague! Love your pictures.
Every day I read your blog with much pleasure. I enjoy your little stories and beautiful pictures!
I was attended to your blog by a famous Dutch columnist called Aaf Brandt Corstius, who wrote a column about you in the Dutch paper ‘nrc.next’ a while ago.
I became very curious and had to take a look at your blog and now you have a new fan! ;-)
I’ll send you the link of the article, it’s in Dutch but maybe you can translate it in Danish!
Here it is, from March 23 last year: http://www.nrcnext.nl/columnisten/2010/03/23/ik-ben-inmiddels-behoorlijk-geinvolveerd-in-haar-leven/
I hope you like it!
Greetings from a Dutch reader
Proud to say ‘hi’ from Deventer, The Netherlands :)
Hi from Arnhem!
Hellooo from Utrecht, Netherlands!
Hi from Utrecht!
I’m not Dutch but I do check your blog daily from the Netherlands… from the very very south, in Maastricht!
By the way, I think I know where your Dutch readers come from.. (Anyway, this is how I know about you)
One of my favourite writers of a daily column in a national newspaper once wrote about you.
I included a link to the article, you can translate it in Google.
Nice blog you have! Everyday i take a peek.
Greetings from Nieuwegein, Netherlands
Hi! I’m dutch too and I read the same column as Dieuwy. Since that day I look at your blog at least five times a week. I really love everything of it, especially the interior of your house (my boyfriend also loves it), all the things you make and of course your adorable daughter. And I like the clothes you wear!
And another ‘hi’ from the Netherlands :-)
Hi from Groningen in the north of the Netherlands!
Hi from Eindhoven, the Netherlands ;)
Hi Brinja! Love your Blog :) I also got to know about your blog through the daily column Dieuwy mentioned. Greetings from Harderwijk! :D

‘Hi’ from a Dutchie living in Switzerland :-)
Hi! I am a Dutch reader living in Berlin and started following you after Aafs daily column as well.
Hi from Leiden!
Hellow, I really like this Blog, specially the-after-weekend-posts :)
A friend of mine tipped me about you’re blog.
Groeten uit Rotterdam
Another Dutchie here…
Love Copenhagen and love your blog.
Same story for me, it was Aaf Brandt Corstius gushing about your blog that got me here. (Today by the way, though she wrote about you over a year ago).
Greetings from Leiden, or DOEI!
Hi… from Paris, France ! I’m not much from Netherlands but couldn’t resist to say “hi” ! :-)
Yes the netherlands Groningen, the north

Hallo, dag Brinja ! In Belgium, we have 3 official languages : Dutch, French and German !
Hallo en groetjes uit Maastricht, Nederland.
another Dutch reader here! Two of my sisters read your blog as well as far as I know, so I’m waiting for them to add to your list of Dutchies. ;)
Greetings from Utrecht!
From the Netherlands, I check your website frequently, because it’s so inspiring (and besides that, just some cosy mothersstuff, my babyboy is just as old as your girl…). Are you already shipping your products to the Netherlands?
Esther: HI :) Yep I ship to the Netherlands as well. Have a great day. B
Hi! From Amsterdam!
Greetings from Maastricht!
Hi, I also follow you thanks to Aaf. My former favorite blog camembertmetpindakaas.nl (beautiful pictures too) stopped, so I was glad to catch a new one. Like it!
Groet uit Groningen.
Since all of my fellow Dutchies said hi already i tought i’d give it a go as well! Hi from Den Bosch!
Hoi Brinja! Groeten uit Oost-Nederland :-).
(greetings from the eastern part of The Netherlands (also thanks to Aaf :-))
Wow Brinja. Jeg er bare fra Bryggen, men også stor fan af din blog – og butik:-)
Jeg er meget imponeret over så mange hollandske fans. Godt gået!
Hi from Maastricht :-)
(I spotted three readers from Maastricht! Nice!)
Hi from Deventer!!
Hoi from Amsterdam! Love your pics!
Hi from Almere :-)
This is what Aaf wrote, or close to it anyway:
Do you recall that in 2008 everybody had a weblog? It was ridiculously timeconsuming of course, and that’s why there are so many weblogs running dry, and abrubtly ending in musings on fruit-drinks or a picture of a comic trafic sign from Poland … not to be continued.
Twitter seems so much more convenient, because all you have to do, is to write cryptic messages as ‘@brinjah yeah, and what about that umbrella!’, and with that you’ll participate in an important global movement.
However clumsy the remaining weblogs may seem nowadays, I still like to follow a few of them.
Right now I’m completely addicted to Brinja’s Blog, a woman from Kopenhagen who I don’t know personally. I do not recall how I ended up on het blog, but in the meantime I have become fairly involved in her daily life.
Brinja is about my age, but that is where comparisons end. Brinja has her own shop, for which she makes clothing and hair ribbons. At home she works on a perfect model of her appartment, furniture and all. And she has a boyfriend called Anders, a baby under way – for whom she knits socks & sweaters – and a bunch of friends with whom she often goes out to eat lovely dishes. (Her most recent post is titled“Smorrebrod)
So, I’m deadly jealous of Brinja. Her own shop. Working on a miniversion of her own home. And Smorrebrod. That is, in a nutshell, my ideal life.
It’s not good for me to check out her site, because I’ll see her sitting on the couch with cosy socks, knitting a babycap. Especially the pottering around is bugging me. You see, I think I have the pottering–gen in me, that’s why I’ve been in a knitting-class for years now- but actually, I have not yet completed a single sweater.
Brinja has. And more. Very pregnant, whith a shop to run, she recently decorated storage boxes with vintage wallpaper. I wish I would do that in my scarce spare time. But I squander it by 1. Googling for an apartment 2. running on a treadmill in the gym – ah well walking, and 3. exhaustingly checking out the weblogs of Danish women.
In that time Brinja has completed an Alvar Aalto chair for her minihome.
Still I go and look her up. Every day. That’s where I get my shot of jealousy. We have known it for ages: Internet brings out the worst in people. Fortunately Brinja herself, is blissfully unaware of this.
Pjèr: Thanks so much for the translation -how very sweet of you! It was so fun for me to read.
Hi from Hilversum, the Netherlands! I read your blog with extra interest because we livedjust around the corner of your shop for half a year, in 2010. We miss KBH, and your blog is like an antidote!

Hi from Gouda!
I also read your blog because of the column by Aaf Brandt Corstius. :) x
Hej Brinja! Jeg tror det er fordi en pige, som skriver for et stort avis her i Holland, skrev at din website var hendes favorite site… Det er alligevel sådan at jeg har fundet dig :-)
Another hi, from Rotterdam. I swing a little but only hooked on you ; )!
Hi from Leiden and thanks to Aaf for mentioning your blog!
Hi from Nijmegen, love to follow your daily life ;)
Hoi Brinja! Hollandse groeten.x
I’m a Dutch girl living in Stockholm. For a couple of weeks ago I spend a weekend in Kopenhagen. I noticed that the design was quite like the Dutch one. All the colors, dots, flowers etc were very simular to Dutch taste. And of course all the (decorated) bikes! So that may be why you have so many Dutch followers.
Hi,from Haarlem. I folow your blog since last week when I red about it in a colum from Aaf Brandt Cortius in the newwpaper ‘de Volkskrant’ Nice blog!
Hej fra Amsterdam! Elsker din blog. :)
Again “Hi!” from an extremely happy reader! Love the necklace!
Hoi! Hier ook een Nederlandse meelezer:) Groetjes!
A very sincere ‘hi!’ from Den Bosch!

Hi Brinja, hello from Utrecht, it’s lovely to visit your ‘visual life’ every now and then… I discoverd your blog via a column in the dutch newspaper, it’s written by Aff Brandt Cortius. Well, I guess you know this already.
Have a happy Easter, I hope to visit your shop one day! xxx Maud

Hi from Delft! :)
Hi from Gouda!
Hi from groningen! Luv ur blog!
A bit late, but again from Groningen: HI! Can’t wait to see you and you’re shop in real life in october. So nice to have a small eye on the wonderful Scandinavian way of living every day.
I love your pictures, stories and lifestyle.
It’s like reading a small magazin.
You’re welcome. See it as a favour returned.
I so enjoy your blog, camera-work & the effort you put into it all.
Hallo! Love your blog. Greetings from Den Haag!
Yeah! I’m number 100 whahaha!
I looooooooooove your blog and I when I ever come visit copenhagen, I’ll be sure to stop by your shop!
Greetings from Gramsbergen (the very east of holland!)
Hoi! vanuit Utrecht!
Hi, from Bilthoven
Hi, from Enschede! I love your blog!
I lost my bookmark to your blog a while ago, had forgotten your name (never heard the name Brinja before). Just searched for Aaf’s column, so now I’m back. I really enjoy your photo’s.
Hej! It seems an article in some newspaper lead to this interest. I have been in copenhagen and other parts of Denmark. Funny that Denmark from all perspectives is so similar to us (even the bloody weather), I’d say much more than any other country including Belgium, but there are no real historical corrections. But then again The Netherlands seems like a loose part of Scandinavia anyway..
Even Danish is an easy read (well, with some effort)…Strange.
Anyways: hej again from Middelburg, NL of course
Thanks for the inspiration!
Groetjes uit Amerongen!
Hallo Groetjes van Marjolein uit Nieuwegein
