Strendur, Faroe Islands

It's now two years ago, that Kristjan and I purchased a 45kvm hut in Kristjans home village. We spent a week there this summer and a a jolly old good time. List of things I like about the hut:
the view (overlooking Skálafjørð)
the company (my lovely daughter and husband)
the size (45kvm is so doable)
the bathtub (pictures to come...)
did I mention the good company!?


Best advise ever!


This summer thus far

We're enjoying the danish summer and for the most part hanging out at home until the worst heat and sunbeams have past. We vent to Tivoli two days in a row, visiting the Rasmus Klump playground and not spending a single dime the first day, but we caved an ice cream to share on the second day. I'm trying to hold back on the little I have, now attending school and no work...


Now that's a shade!

Would die for a Ana Kras handmade lamp shade. They are so beautiful and classic. No two are the same, but all charming.


get together

Two pictures. One taken in 1953 and the other 2013.
My grandmother is the brunette standing in the center<3
I'm the one with four eyebrows.




Loooong time

I'm back in Denmark, back in school and back blogging<3

all day and all night at school

It's exam time and I'm sooooooooo tired! We have to create 125 different poster for Wonderful Copenhagen. I can't wait for friday to come and for all of this to be over. Vacation is so welcomed and will be so sweet<3


like father like daughter

Took this picture one morning I couldn't/wouldn't get out of the bed. So the two of them decided to play me a 'rise and shine now!' song.


easy peasy green cake

This is one of the first cakes I learned how to make, as a young girl. It's a must for children's birthday parties and you can make it any colour you wish or no colour at all. It's basically a downgraded cheap mazarin cake without marzipan.

bake at 180 degrees celsius for 45 min.
200 g suger
150 g butter
2 eggs
3 tbsp almond extract
1 tbsp green food colouring
150 g plain flour
1 tsp baking powder
1/2 dl water

Beat the sugar and butter until a smooth paste. Add the eggs, one at a time and fully incorporate
before adding the next egg.
Pour in the almond extract and the green food colouring, mix well so all the batter is evenly coloured.
Fold in the flour, baking powder and water.
Pour the batter in to a buttered ring mold.

200 g icing suger
3 tbsp boiling water
3 tbsp coco powder

Mix all the ingredients and cover the cake when cooled.



We have had sunshine and happy days. Heaps of bicycling on the brand new tricycle and never ending trips
to the playground. Then a slight cold including hours watching Moomin and a green cake (pictures to come)


red randomness

Some random pictures of Flora. The COS coat is a heirloom from my friend Rannvá daughter Smilla <3


A weekend full of fun

Nikolina Flora and I have been home alone this weekend and had a great time. We had a playdate that ended in sticks'n'sushi and we ignored the bad weather on sunday and went for a walk in our umbrellas.


One trip and NO funeral

My beloved grandmother Jenny suffered a brain haemorrhage some 3 weeks ago. At one point, it did not look like she was going to make it. Billa Jenný and I rushed to the Faroe Islands to say our 'goodbyes'. But then grandmother Jenny started recovering and waking up. Such joy! So no funeral – only long uninterrupted visits to the hospital. She can only say a few words, but I really felt like we communicated well. Me with words and hand gestures. She with one syllable words and facial gestures.
There was also time to see my family. My cousin (on my mothers side) Jensia invited all the cousins with children to a out of this world scrumptious breakfast. My cousins (on my fathers side) almost all went out twice. So good to talk and remember good old days at grandmother Jennys house. The weather was lovely. It rained twice in my ten day stay - almost unbelievable!
