100 % happiness

A  shop like Skjold Burne in Gilleleje makes me feel like a child in a sweets shop.
Guess you can call me a coffee snob, I only buy coffee in a coffee shop but then my dad worked in the coffee business for more then 35 years and I grew up with the smell of coffee beans..

Tell me about your fav coffee and tea?

 love her home Froeken O

only in Amsterdam

Some houses in Amsterdam are incredibly narrow,
so if you want to move in or out of the house, all the furniture
has to be lifted through the windows because the staircase is far to

We had a great summer day in Amsterdam today with friends...

Mister Kay started his holidays this weekend ...
and soon we will be off to Tisvilde in Denmark.

If you live in Copenhagen or Zealand and you are a collecter or live in a cool vintage home (summer house), get in touch (I would love to take pictures of your home)
