It's probably a good thing...

...that I'm not living in Denmark. I'd be totally broke all the time. How come so many wonderful designers are Danish? True, I could buy a lot online, but luckily the shipping costs are holding me back or we would have to live on Ramen noodles.


Do yourself a favour and head over to their website. If you are anything like me you will want EVERYTHING. Just look at the fabric of this dress!

I slept a little better last night - thanks for your concern, Lisa! - probably because I was so tired my body just decided it needed some rest and knocked me unconscious. Two nights ago I woke up at 2am (I fell asleep maybe 5 minutes earlier) with my heart beating in my throat because someone was running on the roof with what sounded like cement shoes (we are on the top floor of a 5 story building). I thought they tried to beat down our door... Not helping with my "sleeping alone" issues. At all.

tree skirt...


...not the one for your christmas tree, but a really cute hand screenprinted one for you! Take a look!

I'm supertired these days. I can't sleep. My husband got a new job far far away and now we only see each other on weekends. I'm fine during the day (always so so so much to do), but the nights are bad. I think I've aged about 10 years in the last two weeks.

Nothing to cry about


My last post was 10 days ago? It didn't seem that long! So sorry. I was probably busy listening to The Weepies "Say I'm You" over and over again. Though they are probably an old hat for everyone else, I just discovered them by watching the first season of "Men in Trees" (again). The pilot features their song "World Spins Madly On"...fantastic. Even so music is a highly personal matter, give them a try. So, so beautiful.

put your best foot forward.

The best thing about changing from livejournal to blogger is that now I can post as many pictures as I like without spaming anybody's "friends"-page. And there is always so much show and tell! Sadly these pictures are too small to do the shoes justice - they are true works of art. And so many designs to shoes - uhm - choose could wear a different pair each day of the week. I almost wouldn't dare to wear them on our dirty autumn streets though.




Moomin madness

Can you ever grow too old for a classic? I don't think so. The Moomin comic strips by Finnish author Tove Jansson have been republished (with three more books to come). I'm already in love with the covers:

"Moomin Book One: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip"

"Moomin Book Two: The Complete Tove Jansson Comic Strip"

And even so cartoon mugs usually don't float my boat, I just might add this "Pikku Myy" (Little My) cup to my collection - she's my favourite character.

Need something sweet with your tea while reading the books? Then you might be interested in the Moomin cookie cutters. It's an illness I tell you...

One swallow does not make a summer...

...but since it's already autumn and there are actually four swallows, I guess we are on the safe side.

Swallow wall decals (also available in white):

These can easily be a bit too kitschy but would be really cute in a minimalist interior.

Invite me to a Polterabend. Please.

("delicious" by rice,

No...we definitely don't need more bowls of any kind. That said - I'd really love to have these. The colors are devine and I like the raw edges.
