Simple Shabby Chic

Simple Shabby Chic.... 
....at Target

Target has a Shabby Chic collection by Rachell Aswell. 
They have had it for years, and I think it is soooo perfect for people like me, 
who can not afford to spend thousands of dollars on furniture, 
but still want to go Shabby Chic.  

I want to show you a desk I have fallen in love with. 

If you go on-line they have a bigger collection. 
Sooo Shabby! Love it. 

Happy Tuesday Everybody.

Valentine's Day Candies

Valentine’s Day is getting closer and I like all the Valentine 
Candy you can get now.  

Yesterday I bought some strawberry marshmallow hearts. 

Very cute and delicious. 

Now it is almost time for me to make some food. 
My father-in-law and Mr. J's BFF are coming over to visit and hang out.
 I promised to make some food for them. Rice in coconut milk. 

Have a great Sunday and I will see you later.

New Picture

Yesterday I bought a new picture for the living room. 

I decided to put it on the shelf instead of hanging it on the wall. 
I like what it says: 
Happiness is not a destination it is a way of life. 

Besides our Saturday morning routine; Getting fresh bagels and 
vanilla chai (my new addiction) from DD, a trip to Target and some grocery
shopping. (No dance class today), and yummy breakfast at 
the house, we had a lazy day. 
Well, I cleaned the house and did some laundry, so maybe not completely lazy. 
I love the smell of a clean house b.t.w. 

Mr. J is working tonight....
I am going to catch up on some of my shows I didn’t get to watch during the week. 
I also have cravings for some chocolate… 
Now I regret that I did not buy any Ghirardelli Filled 
Chocolates (with caramel) earlier… 
My absolute favorites, besides Danish licorice of course! 

Have a good night girls and I will see you tomorrow...

Friday Night

It is Friday night at our little house....
Friday night is my favorite time of the week.

Ada is playing in her room and I just took this picture of her. 

It is very windy and rainy outside. 
I think we are having hot chocolate tonight. It is one of those nights. 

Have a good night, sweeties! 

Love Candle


I am working from home today! Yay
Both Ada and I got to sleep in this morning.
I just took her to the daycare and now its time to go to work.
It is raining outside and I going to enjoy a warm cup of tea by the computer.

My new (love) candle. It gives our little house a nice soft smell.  

Love is in the air at our little house...

Happy Friday Bloggers!

From my trip to Home Goods

A couple of new things from Home Goods 

I could not help myself... another lantern. 
They had some BIG ones for the outside (yes they are starting to have stuff 
for the outside already). Very tempting. Maybe next time....  

Have a great Wednesday!

My shelf is up....

My (new) shelf is up... but still empty. 

Now I just have to add some decorations/things on it.... 
I am also thinking about adding a light string or maybe hang one from it. 
I think it would look very nice and cozy. 
Perfect excuse for a trip to Home Goods to see if they have something for me! 

Have a great night and see you tomorrow... 

Danish Pomp De Lux

Soon it is time to go shopping (Danish) again... 
I cant wait for the new PompdeLux collection to come out next month
and I can go shopping for some new spring clothes for Ada. 

I love their designs and prices. And they also ship to the US!

Have a Happy Tuesday and I will see you later.

Creative Fireplace

I kind of like this idea of turning your fireplace into a book shelf. 
I would love a fire place at my house (especially today when it is very 
cold outside), but this is not such a bad idea. 
Very creative I think.

We just got home from a nice walk in the snow not too long ago. 
Now it is time for the little one to take a bath and get all nice and 
comfy under the blanket. 

Tomorrow is Monday and its back to work and daycare…. 

In a few minutes I am watching American football with Mr. J. 
I don’t understand it fully yet. But I am getting there… 

Thank you for stopping by... 
Tak for at Du kiggede forbi....

Happy Friday

Happy Friday Night.
Are you also ready for the weekend bloggers?

We are ready for a new weekend. Absolutely! 

The weather forecast says we are getting snow tonight. Lets see... 

I have some (DIY) projects for the weekend;
- Hang my shelf in the living room
- Add new frames and pictures to my shelf in the office
- Buy some wooden boxes and paint them pink or purple (for Ada's room)
-Buy and hang a new lamp over the sink in the kitchen 

Hey!!!! I am going to have a busy weekend... 
(Hopefully I will get a helping hand from Mr J.

But most importantly, I am taking Ada to her first dance class. 
Tomorrow we are just visiting, but next Saturday it is time to "hit the dance floor". 

Have a great Friday night. 
Our Friday night food just got here and it is time for Dominican burgers 

Sweet Dreams when its time to go to sleep.....

New old Scandiphone

Today I went to our basement to look for something 
and I found my Scandiphone. 

I had completely forgotten about it... 
I have had it for years, I don't even remember when I got it. 

Anyways, it is back in business at our little house.

Don't you just love when you find old things you forgot about.  
It makes you feel like you just bought something new. 
And you did not even spend any money. 
Well, that's how I feel. Yay! 
Now I just need a place to put it. 
That's my next project.... But not tonight. 
Now, I am ready to just enjoy the rest of the evening. Doing nothing else.  

See you later girls and have a great night. 

Smeg Fridge

I am in love... BIG time....

With this SMEG fridge. 

You can get them in all kinds of colors. It would look realy cool with 
a pink or another funky color in my kitchen. 
But than again maybe after a while you would get tired of it.
I think I would. I know how I am. 

This color in cream would work perfect for me... 
It would look great in my kitchen. 

And why not spice it up with a matching dishwasher if you go shopping! 

Enjoy your day! 

See you later Chicas !

Hi Bloggers! 

We had a long weekend here in the States. Love that! 

We spend the day at the house watching movies and 
playing games. Including the once on the phone :o) 

Naisha came and spend the weekend with us. 
The girls had a lot of fun and made the biggest mess ever. 
We are about to take her home before it is getting to late....  

Happy Monday Night!

A little change at our little house

A little change at our little house. 

Today while I was cleaning, I decided to move my book 
shelf away from the corner. 
For a while I have been thinking that the corner was "clutterish". 

I like it. It feels more open. And lighter. 

I put a lamp there and our basket with our blankets

And this is how it looks tonight, right now... 

Have a great and cozy Saturday night. 

" Life is good "

We had a great day today! 

Now I am going to go shopping on line for some new things for Ada's room. 
I will let you know if I find something interesting! 

Enjoy your Friday night Girls.

Yellow Mood

I am in a yellow mood tonight! 

 I am off tomorrow and taking Ada to the dentist (oh boy!!). 
Than we are going to have a mother and daughter day. 
I am taking her for her first manicure. She loves to do her nails. 
She deserves it, she is such a good girly-girl! 

Good night and sweet dreams. I am ready to watch a movie with the little one. 
 I am soooo happy we do not have to get up early tomorrow. 


All images from pinterest 
I added a light string to my shelf in our office. 

It gives such a cozy light in the room. 
Cant wait for the spring to arrive and the stores have them 
back on the shelves in all kinds of designs, for both in- and outside.

Have a great Thursday

One for the Money Movie

Movie Time 

I cant wait for the movie 
"One for the Money
to come out at the end of January 

I have read all Janet Evanovich's books about Stephanie Plum. 
(great entertainment b.t.w. when you are a commuter) 

I hope the movie is just as good and funny as the books. 

Hopefully one of my girl friends will come with me to the movies to watch it. 
I think it is more of a girl-movie....

Have a great night and catch you chicas tomorrow

New picture above my sofa and more.....

A tough decision for me! 

I need a new picture, or something over my little sofa in the living room.
I am debating with myself if I should go 
for a new frame and picture, or put up a shelf.  
I have an (old) white (looks kind of shabby chic) shelf in the basement
which I am thinking about putting up. 
I don't know. 
I think I am leaving the wall empty for now, so I can get really 
annoyed and make a decision.....

I am in the mood for rearranging and redecorating my house with some new colors and things. I also want to get some new pillow for the sofa etc.

For me, it is that time of the year, after you put all your christmas decorations away and your home seems kind of empty, that I need a change.
It is not such a bad thing. I love to get new stuff :o)  

Have great Tuesday and thank you for stopping by !

Ready for a new week?

Sunday Shopping...

Today we went to a Crate & Barrel outlet. 

We were hoping to find all kinds of good stuff, but we did not buy anything. 
They had some nice things, but I decided not to go crazy 
buying things I don't really need. 

We had a nice trip there, and had some fun family time at the same time. 

Monday again tomorrow.... and ready for a new week. 

See you later Girls  

Valentine's Day

Christmas is barely over and the stores are already ready for the next 
(big) celebration on the calender; 

Valentine's Day

I love Valentine's Day by the way. I think it is a cute 
little occasion to acknowledge your loved once. 

There is not the thing you can't get, and of course with  my 
obsession with mugs, I had to get these.... 

Love them... 
Especially with the heart inside.

Saturday, January 7, 2012


Today we made cupcakes.... 
(it was suppose to be a cake + cookies, but we ended up going for cupcakes instead)  

I love to bake. So do Ada. 
Especially when she gets to taste the chocolate. 
No doubt that she has a sweet tooth just like her dad (read; mom) 

Have a great night.
Time for me to catch a movie....  

Ikea Wishes

I think it is time for a trip to IKEA very soon. 

I need candles and napkins, which gives me the perfect excuse for a trip there...

I have some things I would looooove to get at IKEA

For either my bedroom or office 

For my office, perfect for my binders with inspirational stuff.... 

Anywhere ! I just want it... 

Lantern for outside on my entrance stairs

Ohhh yes !  It is time for a trip to IKEA...... 
Don't you just love IKEA ?? I do, it makes me feel at home... Hejsan ! 

Have a fantastic Saturday. 
The weather is beautiful today

 I am exited. 
Today I was invited to a Hunter boots sale event.
Boots for $20.00. Yes, Hunter boots for only $20.00. I got myself a new pair 
in white. I would have bought more, but they did not have any more in my size 
(I have small feet). I also got some hats and scarves for Mr. J. so he can stay warm. 

Now we are all ready for winter and the rain. (Ada already got hers)

I wonder if it will rain this weekend......?? 

So far we have no crazy plans for the weekend. 
I promised Ada to bake a cake and some cookies with her, 
So far that's all we have on the agenda.

Have a nice Friday night and I will see you later, or maybe tomorrow... 

We ordered pizza and it should be here soon.... 

Lots of hugs from me....

Tomorrow is Friday. Yay!

Ada and Mr J are watching television in the bedroom and I am 
about to throw myself on the sofa with my new  
magazines... and the newest catalog from Potterybarn. 
I am ready to get inspired..... 

Good Night and Thank you for stopping by Girls.

Sweet Tooth

I have a sweet tooth. I often do, for licorice. 
I cannot get enough! 

 I just ordered some candies from one of my favorite stores in N.Y.C; 

I hope they get to my little house soon ! 

Have a great night and I will see you tomorrow Chicas! 

Denmark vs. Dominican Republic

Mr J. is from Dominican Republic.
I am from Denmark. 

We are both veeeeery proud of our countries..... 

I found a map of each of our little countries and framed them. 

Have a great Wednesday !
