Not Just Candy

MMmmm - I mixed it myself. It's from a great shop just around the corner from where I live in Copenhagen. So many colors, flavors and a great smell. It's actually inspiring - I feel like making stuff then I see the picture.. and eating of course :)

Sarah's Garden


My friend Sarah has got a wonderful garden - Flowers everywhere, it's great. I don't have a garden myself - only an apartment close to Copenhagen :) So I enjoy the time in Sarah's garden a lot

The summer is here :)



I bought this dress from a secondhand store – and went in and changed it.


Then I closed it in the front and sewed on a line of “fake” buttons. Made a new zipper in the back and made a more round shape around the neck. Finally I made it more narrow in the sides .. it was humongousJ

(I promise that I will have a before and after picture next time)




But it was easy – so go out and do it – there are so many lovely retro dresses out there just waiting to be changed and worn.

New Muffins and a Sross Stitch update



There is always time to make a few muffins - and serve them on my new favorit serving plate :)



I did not have any yellow cotton for my stitch project - so I biked down to one of favorit secondhand stores in town. Here I found a whole pile of great stitch yarn. And in the pile there was a little note from the previous owner, saying:

"Note: Part the yarn, and it's sewn with 2 threads."
I just love that :)
