Hi everybody. First of all a big thank you for all your lovely comments (sorry i have not been commenting the last weeks) and a warm welcome to all new followers. I got back a week ago from a lovely vacation. Our plan was to go to more Scandinavian countries be we stayed in Denmark. What a great country! Here are some pictures from our trip.

We stayed a few days at the beautiful island Rømø at the North Sea coast. We were aloud to ride our van on the beach and there was a great relaxed atmosphere among all the people.

  A lot of kites were let up. This kite reminded me of the "pigs in space" of the muppet show.

On the island there was an old house that belonged to a Dutch ( yes the Dutch have been everywere) whale fisher. So beautiful, i have to show you all the pictures i took.

  An old boat in front of the house.

All the doors and ceilings were painted. Lovely,lovely colors.

The Dutch tiles and a red VOC  box.

Closet bed.

I loved the striped bedding.

This grey and white calm atmosphere in this old toolshed is so typical Scandinavian for me.Love it.

Then we travelled to one of the most beautiful cities i know, Copenhagen.
We parked the car in the neighbourhood of the shop of Brinja, she has such a lovely shop and her blog made me start blogging. Please check it out and visit her when you are in Copenhagen.

After visiting Brinja's shop (where i bought a handmade wallet) we took our bycicles off the van and explored the city by bike.

This is my daughter Jil who rode her bike through the city as if she did it everyday. ( and yes she is a Adidas fan)

 This is the old harbour, ilove the colors.

Copenhagen is a city where i could live. Clean, friendly and very hip!

The last picture i wanted to share is this beautiful red caravan, a neighbour at the campground. Now i want a caravan too!

 In my next post i will show off everything i bought in Denmark. It's great to be back in blogland and i  have  a lot of cathing up to do :)



  1. Really great photos- I have always wanted a closet bed- I had a bed between two walls when I was little but did not have a door on it.

    The shed is calm- Do you know why only part of the floor is wood and the other is rock- I wonder what the functionality is about that kind of a set up.
    I love the rocks.

    I am glad you are back!

  2. Wow looks like you had a fabulous time! Love all these amazing pics!

I am craving a vacation so badly! But it is not looking in the budget :) So I will have to live through you! & I don't kind that at all! Because your trip was fab! Hope you made all kinds of wonderful memories!

  15. I always wanted a closet bed. When I was elementary school..I painted a mural on my parents back porch wall of a Scandinavian interior...the kitchen with the wall bed. I loved that mural...and it was really good too...amazing for an elementary student.. we had been reading about Scandinavia and I fell in love with the decor. I still paint murals on my walls. Just a little hint about me..that I had actually forgotten until your post! Tot schrijfs!

  16. Wat een geweldige foto, die tweede met de roze biggetjes, GREAT SHOT! Alle foto's zijn trouwens erg mooi. Welcome home. Volgens mij ben ik vorig jaar ook op datzelfde eiland geweest, zoek ik even op. Ik weet het niet meer precies.
    Een gezellig weekend, met of zonder regen ;)
