Christmas Star

Love my wooden Christmas star from Tine K Home. 
Every year it gets a new spot and this year it is on my shelf in the kitchen :o) 

Have a great Monday. 
Time to start the day !

Can't believe it is First of Advent today. 
We have not lit our first candle yet. We are waiting for Mr. J 
and Naisha to come home from New York City. They are taking some family 
members home, who came to celebrate Thanksgiving with us. 

I started to Christmas decorate today. 
I did not "go crazy" this year. 
Just a few things here and there.  

Oh, boy, Sunday is here and this long Thanksgiving weekend
went by way too fast. But now we can start enjoying 
the most cozy and lovely season of the year. 
The countdown has started.....  

Have a great Sunday night. 
Time for a big cup of tea and a Swedish movie on Netflix !

Lovely Day 

What a nice day. 
The day after Thanksgiving. 
The perfect day to be outside and burn some calories after all the 
food we had yesterday.  We have tons of leaves out there again, so it is time 
for another clean up before the family is coming over to our house later. 

Tonight our down-town is being turned into "Winter Wonder Land" where 
the theme this year is The Wizard of Wonderland. Besides the annual parade 
and Christmas tree lighting there will be so many fun things like an
out-door ice skating rank, carriage rides, bon fires, music 
and lots of food and drinks. And there will be a s'mores pit where 
I am definitely going to stop by.   

We have been going for the last few years and this year our little
cousins etc. will be joining us, so I am sure it will be extra fun :o)  

Have a great Friday !

Christmas Candle

Love Christmas Candles, especially the calendar candles. 
As soon as December 1 hits, we love to light ours every night during dinner 
and see the number(s) go down one by one. 

This candle from Danish Normann Copenhagen is one of my absolute 
favourites this year. 

Tuesday already and I can't wait for our long Thanksgiving weekend this week

Have a g.r.e.a.t day !

Suddenly Sunday 

Wow, suddenly Sunday. 
The days flew by so fast since Wednesday. 

I don't put up any Christmas decorations until next weekend after Thanksgiving, 
but yesterday when Ada and I went out and made a stop by Home Goods, 
bought the white candle house. I did not want to wait to put it up 
until next weekend because it gives the coziest light. So yes, the first 
Christmas decoration is up at our little house. 

When do you start to decorate for Christmas?

Have a great Sunday !

Grey Wednesday Inspiration 


I love this dark grey colour on the wall and now I have the total urge 
to paint our bedroom. 
I think it is going to be a project for the very beginning of 2016. 
Did you notice the ceiling too ? 

Happy Wednesday ! 

Have a great day

Are you almost ready ? 


Found this on Pinterest and how cute is this sign ? 

We are slowly getting ready for Christmas at our house and the girls are also 
working on their list for Santa :o) 

I have to admit I have bought my first Christmas presents. 
Well, I always start early because I have to get the package for my parents 
in Denmark ready. 

Have a great Monday !

Hello bloggers and happy Sunday 

We are taking a nice and easy morning before it is time to go and
celebrate and cut a cake for one of our little family members who 
is turning 8 today. Ada loves her cousin and can't wait to give 
him a big birthday hug and his present. 

Have a wonderful Sunday

It is cold outside and nothing is better than being home with 
candle light and in our comfy clothes. 
And the girls are happy because we are having Burger King tonight :o)  

Yes,  we are ready to enjoy our Friday night to the fullest.

This Morning 

This morning, when I went outside to put the garbage in the front of the 
house, my lawn was covered in leaves. 
It looked so nice and I had to snap a quick picture, so I could show
 you how pretty it looked.  Those colors ! 

Friday night is here and we are about to enjoy it to the fullest 

See you tomorrow !

Lucky Me !

I have to show you what my Mr. J. surprised me with today.
Lakrids by Johan Bülow.
This handmade boiled licorice is so yummy.
He knows I can never get enough of licorice. 
Especially the very salty kind :o) 

Have a great Thursday night !

Wednesday Inspiration 

I can never get enough of the photo art from Love Warriors of 
Sweden.. (...and I am sure you know by now "smile") I am totally in love 
with DOGMA and if I would be a lucky owner of one, I know exactly 
where I would hang it.  
I did not start my birthday/Christmas list yet, but it might 
be time for that very very soon :o) 

Have a great Wednesday !

Happy Monday 

Wow, November is here ! 
A month were we have Thanksgiving coming up. A holiday I have 
grown into loving after living all these years in the US. 
And I finally figured out how to make a delicious turkey :o) 

What a niiice weekend we had.
Saturday was a day full of Halloween fun. 
We participated in our town's Halloween parade with some friends, 
we went "Trunk or Treating", stopped by our friend's house to eat scary 
Halloween cakes, and when it got dark, we went trick or treating in our neighbourhood. 
 The night ended with watching our towns Halloween "bloody" fireworks 
from the deck in the back of our house :o) 

And yesterday Ada had a skating birthday party. 
After the party, we enjoyed the rest of our Sunday at the house, 
 and I got to (finally) read my Danish magazines and eat 
some (most) of my licorice !!!

Have a great Monday and a wonderful start to your week. 
Honestly, I could have used another day off  :o)
