Moroccan poufs

I have gotten a little bit of an obsession with moroccan poufs. 
I really like these..., especially the white one. 

I don't have room for another (big) comfy chair in my living room 
but to add a pouf as extra seating (or of course just to throw you feet on) would do it. 
Maybe even 2. I like them a lot.. 

Ciao, I am getting ready to jump on the train and head to work.... 

Thanks for stopping by Ladies ! 

See you later !

Something very special to me

Something very special to me... 

I have this little chests on my dresser in our bedroom. It is very special 
to me because it is  one of the things I have from my (Swedish) grandmother.  

It is very old and about to fall apart. 
I wanted to show it to you because I just love it.  
I keep special letters and cards I have received over time in it....  

Have a great Wednesday
It is suppose to be nice and warm today.
I think we are going for ice cream when I come home from work today.... 

See you later girls...

New espresso maker

New espresso maker at our little house... 

We needed a new stove top espresso maker and we just ordered 
this one from Bodum. 

I am not a espresso coffee drinker (to strong for me...), but I do like the smell 
and also the sound of the coffee rising through the funnel. 

Want to stop by for a cup of coffee ? :o)

See you later... 

Costume Party/Fastelavnsfest

Today we went to the Danish church in New York City/Brooklyn 
to the annual "fastelavnsfest" (costume party)

We had a great time even tough it was very loud when some 
of the bigger kids hit the barrel and made a lot of noise... 
I think the pictures tell it all....  

The party starts with a worship for the kids. 
Than the kids hit the barrel and afterwards they 
serve Danish (fastelavns-) buns and all kinds of good stuff. 

 I love our tradition of going there every year.  
The kids have a lot of fun and I also get to see and talk a little bit to some of my Danish 
friends I don't see very often.... 

And, I also bought some Danish candies.  Guess what I am stuffing myself with tonight?

Have a great Sunday night. 
We are off tomorrow, but we have nothing on the agenda. Not yet. 
Just some family time at the house... 

See you later....

Later I am catching up om Top Chef Texas. 
I missed 2 episodes already... 

Have a great night. Tomorrow is Friday. Finally !!

See you later chicas...

Romantic Bedroom

Who would not like a bedroom like this one? I know I would. 
So nice, white and peaceful.

Super romantic. 
I would add a picture above the bed and some shelving with 
candles and cute cozy lights, and move right in... 

Happy Tuesday !

I love when I find a picture that inspires me… 
Like this one....

via pinterest 

I love globes, especially when they are colorful. 
I remember my mom had a big globe at my house back in Denmark growing up. 
She use to hide presents in it for Christmas.. ( I am not sure she knows I knew...) 

The other day I found this globe on sale. I could not resist.   

I love the colors, different, but cool. 

Happy Monday and have a great week.

Saturday Night Movie

Saturday Night 

I was lucky to get a copy of the movie The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, 
so tonight it is movie night at our house. With popcorn! 

I read the books and watched all 3 (Swedish) movies (fantastic books and movies b.t.w.). 
I heard that the US version is even better than the Swedish, 
so I am anxious to see if that's true. 

Have you watched any of the movies? Or read the books?

Tomorrow morning Ada and I are going to Anne and Julie's house for a play date. 
We are looking forward seeing them, it has been a while... 

Have a nice and cozy Saturday Night and I will see you tomorrow. 

Good Night Girls!

New Mirror

Happy Friday 

I am a little late with my post today, but I had a busy morning. 
I had to run some errands. 
On my journey getting my errands done, I stopped by Home Goods.
Juuuuust to check. With no intensions to buy anything. But I found a mirror. 
Exactly the one I had been looking for for a loooong time. 
When I saw it I knew I had to get it....

I have put it in our office/guest room, but the plan is to have it in the 
bedroom after we renovate, paint or do something in there, which is very needed... 

As you can see on the picture the sun is shinning today… 
It is beautiful today. 

Well, now it is time for me to clean my closest and get rid of some of my old clothes. 
This is something that has been on my agenda for way too long, and today is the day. 
Winter clothes we donate. 
Summer clothes we send to Dominican Republic to our family and friends. 

Have a great Friday. 

I absolutely love Fridays! Yay!   

See you chicas and thank you for stopping by

The Land of Nod

I like this book shelf from The Land of Nod 

Wouldn't it look super nice with  (cool) magazines and/or interior design books... 

Or, of course as The Land of Nod has it, for kids books....  

Have a fantastic Thursday ! 

Pssst: We got a gift card from Potterybarn..... it is time 
to go shopping for something new for our little house...
