My Day Off 




I am off today and having a Marie-Day. Love those.
On the agenda is a trip to IKEA (need candles etc.), lunch with 
my Mr. J and a trip to Home Goods. Woop Woop ! 

Bought these beautiful red tulips yesterday. 
They look so nice in the living room. 
I need some colors in this grey winter season. 

Have a fantastic Friday !

More Snow 






Got a lot of snow again last night... 
Just went outside to take some pictures and it was so cold. 
I rushed back inside.
I am glad we are home today and can enjoy the warm inside. 
Happy that we don't have to go anywhere. 

Time for breakfast at our little (warm) house....
I think I am going to make some pancakes...
Pancakes with nutella and bananas. Oh yes ! 

Have a niiiiiiie Wednesday

Happy Monday 




There was no school today. 
And I stayed home with the family :o)
I had a few emergency calls and cases I had to work on during the day. 
But that was OK. At least I could work from home on the sofa :o)  

They just said on the news that we are getting a lot of 
snow again tomorrow. A snow storm is heading our way ! 
Oh no. I am not ready for snow again. 
Not ready for the cold days again. 

We just had hot chocolate... 
And now it is almost time for the little one to take a bath 
and get ready for bed. 
Our alarm will ring very early tomorrow morning. 

Vi ses bloggers !

Sunday 




The girls and I are spending the day at our little house. 
We are all not feeling 100%. 
I think we are all coming down with a cold. 
There is no school tomorrow so hopefully  
they will feel better by Tuesday
I am suppose to work tomorrow, but I am not sure I will. 
I will make the decision tomorrow morning. 
I might just spend the day at the house with the family which is 
one of the best things I know... :o) 

Enjoy your Sunday Bloggers !

Stony Lake Furniture store in Canada 
The place to go.... 




I would love to visit Lisa Besseling's 
store Stony Lake Furniture in Lakefield, Canada. 
Lisa sells some of my favorite Danish designs such 
as Tine K Home and Bloomingville. 


Mr. J and I have talked about maybe making a little family trip to Niagara 
Falls this year. That might be the perfect opportunity to also 
take the ride up to Lisa's store. I have bought some things from 
the store and have had them shipped to me, But I would also love to go 
to her store. I know I would not leave empty-handed.   
  

Have a nice Friday !
I am ready for the weekend. 
As always !

House Doctor 
Everyday 2014 




The new House Doctor catalog is now available (see here) and they 
have a lot of nice things in their Spring/Summer 
Everyday 2014 collection. 

I really like these woven ceramics. 

I love this time of the year when all the companies start showing 
their spring/summer collections and have their new catalogs available on line. 

I can't wait to see the Tine K Home and By Nord catalogs. 
2 of my absolute favourites !

Suddenly Wednesday 




Oh man, it is very cold here by us. Yesterday was brutal. 
It has never been this cold since I moved here almost 15 years ago. 
Being born and raised in Denmark I kind of consider myself as a Viking, 
but oh no, this cold weather is way too cold for me ! 

Suddenly Wednesday again and this week is going by pretty fast.  
But it is hard to get back into the routines. Into our every day life. 
We had a niiiice Christmas/New Year vacation. 
Which could have been a little bit longer after my opinion.
Next vacation is not until Easter, but that is when we are going to 
Denmark, and let me tell you, we can't wait ! 

Time for me to enjoy my morning coffee.
I have a busy day ahead of me ! 

Have a nice day Bloggers !

PS; Apron is from Danish By Nord and bought at webshop Cahetu

Stuck at the house.....
......but it is a good thing



We got a lot of snow last night. 

All schools are closed today and most people could not go to work. 
Including me !! 
I work in New York City and my job/manager was totally OK with 
me staying at home with the family. 

We were prepared for the snow and being "stuck" at our little house, 
so yesterday we went by the store and got what we needed in case 
we would not be able to leave the house for a few days. 

Have a great day Bloggers !

Thank you for stopping by !

New Pictures 


All our Christmas decorations are gone. (only thing left is our tree

I framed some new pictures today.
The pictures are prints from the LW 2014 Calendar.  
I needed something new on my shelf. 

The girls are going back to school tomorrow. 
Mr. J is also going back to work. 

Back, back to our every day life....  in 2014 

Good Night ! 



Welcome New Year 2014 
&  
Goodbye to the Christmas Decoration 




Today I am going to take down all our Christmas decorations.
We will leave the Christmas tree up until Sunday. 
It will be kind of "empty" without all the decorations. 
But I am ready for some changes. 
Some new colors for the new year. I am thinking pastel colors.  

Can't believe we are in 2014 ! 
2013 went by so fast. 
But we had a nice 2013 and I am looking forward to another great year.
And to another year of blogging. 

Thank you to every one of you who has stopped 
by House of Danish Marie in 2013.
I am very thankful

I wish you all the best in 2014
