GOING FAST

Kornelius is afraid of NOTHING. And he is faster than the speed of sound… I wonder how things will be when he starts walking….

REUSE

I finished up the sign for the shops yesterday. It’s a reuse of the good old ‘Brinja-sign’ from my shop in Copenhagen. The iron bars holding the awning in front of the circus van is a reuse as well. They used to function as clothes racks in the shop. I love to reuse and give old things new life. and I love that many of the materials we’ve used building the whole circus already has a history.

FAMILY

My favorite brother in the whole wide world is here. He (and family) has rented a vacation house near by the beach house for a while. I don’t know who is more ecstatic about it Vilja or I. She can’t wait for cousin Linus to come back and play tomorrow.

RAINY DAYS

We have had two rainy days. Spend them refilling the refrigerators. Hanging up laps and today we’ve bought a popcorn machine.

CIRKUS IS

Our new business has a facebook page now! -and a name! ‘CIRKUS IS’ join us if you want. we love company :) .

The picture is from a local newspaper (30 years old) a thoughtful costumer of ours brought it by the shop yesterday for us to see…  Isn’t it great? A floating café by ‘Stilinge Strand’  I love it.  Maybe a relaunch next year?  hmmm :)

FIRST STRAWBERRYS OF THIS YEAR

Vilja wore the same dress 1 year ago eating strawberrys back in Copenhagen. The leopard/red berry combination is a treat for my eye (I guess?) .

This time around she ‘made’ the strawberry herself :)

MONDAY

GOODNIGHT

During these busy days of ours I look very much forward to the moment when the shop is all closed and Kornelius is asleep and I have a quiet moment to turn on my pc. Only problem is that it’s always almost midnight when I get here. and by then I am crazy tired. Mathias (Michael grownup son) is visiting at the moment. He helps out in the shop and with Kornelius. He even made us a yummy dinner today. Thank you for all your comments :) I’ll be back with answers tomorrow. b

CIRCUS SUCCESS

Our little ‘circus’ is a great success! :)

We are working non stop from early morning until late in the evening. But it is so much fun. Does not leave much for much blogging though. And I have not had time to call or see my family and friends for quite a long time now.

Grandma Jonna helps out with Kornelius during the day and Vilja feels right at home on the patio in front of the shops, she builds little shelters and plays with the kids visiting.

In the early morning I find time for little things like sign painting.

KIDS

AND THEN SOME…

A few more shots from the coffee wagon.

DRINK COFFEE

Seems people outside the big city likes a good cup of coffee too :) our coffee shop is almost as popular as our ice-cream! Here’s a few pictures from the good old workmen-hut. Remember it looked like this not that long ago.

THIS AND THAT

Michael and I can’t keep up with two kids and two shops alone. We have hired some good people to help us out when things gets too busy.

Fresh eggs from a sweet neighbor makes a good omelet! Dinner in a hurry.

NAPPING IN THE GARDEN

Thank you thank you thank you for all your thoughts and comments lately. I will get back to you on those soon promise!

I keep getting the; where-is-that-pretty-shop-of-yours-located question :) …It’s at a place called ‘Stillinge strand’  1.5 hour drive outside Copenhagen.

WEEKEND

 

CIRCUS

Wow this circus-business sure keeps us occupied. Things are going great!

I haven’t forgotten about you guys. Back tomorrow :)  sleep tight. b

WWW

ARGHHHH… then the INTERNET broke down last friday. I guess it was for the best really because we have been way to busy for computers.

My Sister was here all weekend helping out. She took care of the kids (four of them all together) and she made us yummy meals. I look so much forward to show you more.

BUSY BUSY BEES

Pictures sure look calm and quiet. But things are BUSY around here. Grand opening tomorrow afternoon.

A sweet neighbor brought us the beautiful old milk jugs. Perfect for flowers don’t you think!
