Speaking of doilies...

...I almost forgot my new bicycle basket!


I've had my eyes on "Carrie" for months and knew I would eventually break down and order it in Denmark. Then one night when my husband picked me up after work, we passed this little shop called "Scandinavian Objects" ( which is on the same street as our shop. was right there! In the window! We were so excited, we didn't even ask for the price. And when the shop owner finally told us, we misunderstood what he said...that was one expensive bicycle basket! My darling husband bought it for me without flinching...well maybe there was a little twitch in his left eye... And to top it all off - I don't even have a bike! (Yet...)

lots of lace

A post for the amazing Lisa, who always appreciates a pretty doily...

Doily plates/bowls by "1260grad" in Munich (1260°C is the temperature of the kiln). Handmade, beautiful...and affordable.

...and for good meassure...the Chloé dress from one of the previous seasons that I'm still coveting so very very much...

If you like Danish design and cute feminine clothing with an edge, I can highly recommend "Nümph", the clothing company which made my favourite dachshund tee:
Great quality, puffsleeves and cut slightly longer than normal tshirts (which is great as I hate to expose my underwear when bending over).

I just ordered this owl top too - I hope it has the same great fit.

black forest...china


A bit morbid, yet strangely appealing - the "black forest" china by Dibbern. Perfect for Halloween. I wish I could buy a set of dishes for every season, but our cupboards are exploding as it is.
