My autumn wishlist

Funny weather. One day it’s really cold outside, and the next it’s warm and almost better than we’ve had all summer. And then there’s the rain – wild and crazy, and without any warning. But I love this season very much. I love the color pallet and the excuse to drink hot chocolate after school. It’s also the perfect chance to do a bit of shopping and figure out which items you need to replace, and which you cannot live without.

In my case, I really need a new winter coat. I’m still trying to find the right match. This year I also bought these pretty pink slippers – our dog ate the ones I’ve been using for a couple of years – and I had to have these pink ones.

Autumn wishlist

Shopping list:
Striped Mads Nørgaard sweater
Saga Tusk Necklace
Pink slippers

TBT – Felicity

Felicity

Lately, I’ve been re-watching the 90s television show Felicity, starring Keri Russell as the young Felicity Porter, who follows a high school crush to New York City. I’m having so much fun watching this show again. I’m thrown back in time – and I’m finding myself considering if I’m a team Ben or a team Noel again (gotta love this love triangle).

You have to keep in mind that this show was before social media – and imagine the famous haircut scene – well, I was taken by surprise – big time back then – sitting there in my childhood home watching Felicity’s now short hair. Imagine that a haircut could turn into a popular culture reference in lots of other television shows. Check out the list on wikipedia  And what about the shapeless jeans and sweaters – gotta love (or hate) the 90s right? That said, I actually miss the old school phones sometimes. And the cassette recorder – it’s not quite the same on a mobile, is it?

Take a walk down memory lane an watch these clips:

If you’re interested in some more Felicity check out the Felicity reunion here – and if that’s not enough – then it’s time to start watching. Right now I’m half way through season 2.

So tell me, would you watch it again? What’s your favourite moment? Are you Team Ben or Team Noel? And what about that cute Simon Rex? Now I really feel like watching another episode. Take care and go watch it.

My dream kitchen

Dream kitchen 1

This is my dream kitchen. Our kitchen was build in the 1990s by a father and his son. To be honest, they had horrible taste – but I’m also quite sure that taste wasn’t the issue – cost was. It’s an everyday hassle, when you have to cook for a family in our kitchen. That’s why a new kitchen is on top of my wishlist.

We’ve made a few changes already, but the long haul is still ahead of us. We’ve created a kitchen island using fronts from IKEA – like the ones seen in these pictures. I love the light grey color, and the more I think about it, the more I’m leaning towards a total makeover using these fronts. It’s nice and simple, and I keep returning to pictures like these, when I’m looking for inspiration.

Birthday boy – Minecraft party prep

Minecraft party

This upcoming weekend is a Minecraft weekend in our home. We’ve invited the boys from my son’s class home. His birthday was in August – but since August came and went, we decided to throw him a Minecraft party in September instead. The weather is horrible here anyway, so there was slim chance that they could have stayed outside anyway. A few years back, my daughter had a Minecraft party as well, so I’ve got lots and lots of stuff from her party – ready to create that Minecraft feeling.

It was so much fun the last time – and we went all in. I’ve collected lots of free stuff to print and my daughter and her friends also loved making Hama Minecraft characters. This time around, I think we’ll just go with colouring pages of different characters, Lego Minecraft (and lots of it) and a Minecraft quizz. We’ve also printed bookmarks for them to take home.

I’m in the mood for some online shopping…

Last week, when we were in Copenhagen, we stopped by Urban Outfitters – but my daughter Cathrine was not impressed.

Now I just feel like clicking it all home and start decorating for fall/winter.

A rustic home – inspiration

The other day, I was reading through some of my favourite blogs – and I came across this beautiful rustic home. I could start writing about all the things I love about this place (eg. the cool chair/sofa with the cute dog in it) or I could simply just end it here, and let you enjoy this home for yourself.
