Sunday Shopping

Sunday Shopping 

We still had snow, but the weather was very 
nice, so we decided to go shopping in one of the outlet malls in the area. 

My BFF Mette, Ada and Me 

The Mall has a lot of nice stores, and all of us left with
shopping bags in our hands. 

We also had time for some fun 

Good Night and see you tomorrow



Yesterday we got snow. 

Yes, it was snowing all day, and in the 
afternoon our little house and most of the town lost power.
It did not come back until this morning. 

I love hot water bottles
Last night mine came in handy.

We boiled water and filled it up so we 
could bring it to bed and stay warm. 
The house got cold at the end of the night.  

I almost got into the Christmas Spirit.
We had the entire house full of candles. 
It was nice, it was Danish Hygge: Big time

Here are a few pictures from our first day of snow…. 

Tree outside our little house 

Ada playing in the snow 
Have a great Sunday !

Victorian Style House

 This house belongs to home designer Carrie Raphael.

The pictures are from one of my favourite magazines;  Country-Living.
Even tough the pictures are a few years old, I still find them very inspirational.
I could move right into her house. 
Very Scandinavian.  

The magazine calls is;
Swedish Style in a Maryland Farmhouse

Have a fantastic weekend.

We have soooo many leaves falling from the treas. 

The leaves are starting to change colors

I just treated myself with some (new) bags from Envirosax.

I love these bag. They are so convenient. And cool. And affordable.

You can use the bags for everything. 

They can easily be rolled up and will fit right into your handbag, so you can
have an extra bag handy.  I mean; could you ask for more :o)

Here are just some of their many styles

Yes, I am spreading an eco-friendly message with Envirosax style.

Check out the website
I love this watch from Georg Jensen

I need a new watch.
Maybe this is the one.
I like it alot.

Happy Friday!

New Computer Table

We need a new computer table and I have been shopping around.

I found this one at Crate and Barrel

It is not totally Shabby Chic, but I know it will
be soon with everybody spending time by the computer :o)

I think it will look nice in our new office/computer room

Have a great Thursday.

I am super exited.
One of my very best friends from Denmark is coming to visit.
She is arriving today and staying for 10 days.
We are going to have a great time. A lot of Danish Hygge is on the menu.
Besides shopping of course !!!!

Spooky Surprise 

I think we are going to make some cupcakes and cookies this weekend. 
I bought some "spooky surprises" which we can use for decorations. 
I think they are kind of fun. 

Ada has asked me for weeks if we can make cupcakes + cookies 
and bring them to her daycare. 
I think this will be the weekend to bake for her friends.......

Rain and more rain

The rain is pouring down by us today, and will continue into the night.

Today is just one of those days, where you want to stay inside and
enjoy being at home.

If you are going outside today, don't forget to put your rain boots on.
You will need them.
I am wearing mine today.

Stay Dry !

How cool are these bedrooms....

Even tough the style is very contemporary, I still love it !


One of my favorite contemporary designers is Jeff Lewis. I love him.
He has a show on Bravo TV; "Flipping Out". 
You can check him out on
Get ready to be inspired!

See you/Vi ses!
Pumpkin Patch.

On Sunday we went to the pumpkin patch.
The weather was beautiful and we had a great time..... 

It is a nice tradition and I enjoy it just as much as the kids.
We went to a new farm this year.
It was almost 1 hour away from our little house, but it was worth the ride. 
On the way home we stopped for ice cream ! Yummi! 

Happy Tuesday Everybody !!!

Baby Shower Time 

On Saturday we had a baby shower. 

We were invited to celebrate the upcoming birth 
of our neighbor's grandchild. 

They say that the term (baby)"shower" means that the 
expectant mother is "showered" with gifts. 
Let me tell you, so she was.....

Here are a few shots from the party. 

The cake 

Ada and all the gifts...
Center Piece
The Party Girl 
More decorations on the tables 
  We had a lot of fun ! 
Baby Showers are one of my favorite type of parties! 

P.S. The "parents to be" do not know if they are having a boy or a girl.

We have a busy weekend at our little house.

Tomorrow we have a baby shower in the afternoon, and in the 
evening we have a concert with Boys II Men (They are having a little concert
in our town, and Mr. J. was able to score some tickets... )

Sunday we are going to the pumpkin patch, so we can get 
some more pumpkins etc. (I will take a lot of pictures.)

Have a great weekend.

One of my favorite Marie-things: 
My Magnolia Ring 

I loooveeeee Magnolia trees. 

Next spring we need to plant a 
Magnolia tree in our backyard. 
It is a "must have"! 
(Is it too early to think about Spring already?....) 

Have a great Thursday night.    
Yay !!! Tomorrow is finally Friday !  
My Herstal candle holder. 
I have had it in my livingroom for years, and I still love
the cozy light it gives at night.
(I added the cross myself, thought it would give it a little extra...) 

I love Danish Design !

A little Halloween/Harvest Spirit outside our Little House. 

When we get closer to Halloween Night I might add
some spiders and bats, just to make it a little "scary".
We hope to have some "trick or treaters" knocking on our door.

Have a great day !
