Take five this week

It’s been the ‘official’ autumn holiday week here in Denmark, but we both had to work. But the kids have enjoyed some time with the grandparents. Other than that, it’s been a pretty normal week for me.

1. Candle lover

This is the new Urbania Tealight Holder, from Kähler Design. It’s new this autumn. I saw one like this last year on a Swedish blog (if only I could remember which), and I fell in love with the idea. So, I’ll be heading down to the store first thing Monday after work to buy this beauty. I love the ‘cozyness’ of candles and a cup of coffee.

2. Blog Loving

Through Blogging Your Way, I’ve found the blog Ink Lemonade. Christine is the author of the blog, and she describes herself as a lifestyle blogger. But what I first noticed, when I saw her site, was her beautiful blog header. Christine is also a freelance doodler and calligrapher, and her pen is just amazing. I’ll be keeping an eye on her site from now on that’s for sure. She writes that her studio will open soon, but in the meantime, you can visit her Etsy shop right here.

3. Cool Kitchen

Every Friday afternoon, when I take the bus home from work, I read through my mails on my phone. And this Friday I was inspired by this picture. It’s impossible to see that the kitchen is ten years old. I like that the interior is so simple. It gives the room that warm feeling.

4. This made me laugh

This sign really made me laugh – what a genius thing to do. I’ll be hanging this on our bathroom door that’s for sure. I found it while reading one of my weekly blogs on my reader. Time of the Aquarious has been a favourite of mine for quite some time.

5. BODIE and FOU

As an interior blogger there’s no escaping the new online catalog by BODIE and FOU which came out this week. I could just email my family and friends this catalog, because there are so many wonderful things in there, which would look great in my home. It’s a must look through, when you are doing your wishlist for Christmas. I’ll be doing another post on this catalog later today, so do check back later.

That’s all for me now – have a lovely Sunday (Hopefully your little one won’t get up at five like mine did).

Normann Copenhagen

Det er ingen hemmelighed, at jeg elsker sort. Og var jeg faldet over dette kalenderlys fra Normann tidligere, så havde jeg helt sikkert købt det. Men julen er jo meget mere end levende lys. Jeg holder meget af gaver i flot indpakning. Det er hele oplevelsen, som jeg lægger mærke til. Derfor kan jeg også blive helt træt af de butikker, som slet ikke har tænkt over indpakningen. Mange gange står jeg selv og pakker ind herhjemme.

It’s no secret – I love black. And if I had seen this candle earlier, I would have bought one. I love Christmas, and especially gift wrapping. Unfortunately, many shops don’t care about the quality of the paper or the look of the gift, when they are done wrapping it. It’s a shame. More often that not, I end up at home wrapping my own gifts.

Today’s Gift # 4

Jeg sidder allerede og finder MAC accessories i lange baner.  Det nye familiemedlem skal jo have noget godt at ligge i. Så derfor har jeg kigget lidt rund på nettet. Jeg har fundet den her fine taske Liberty London 15″ lanthe Embossed Leather Business Bag hos Apple Store. Jeg er jo selvfølgelig vild med det indvendige for i lilla. Det eneste minus er, at jeg ikke er helt så vild i det mønster, som er udvendigt på tasken. Men lækker er den, og måske er den noget for dig? Du kan købe den lige her. Hvilken taske bruger du til din computer?
