Copenhagen on my mind

On my way to a meeting Friday morning, the city was once again covered in a thick damp blanket, and I took a couple of pictures of downtown towers reaching for the sky. Originally I just wanted to post them as they were, but then this little collage, with a reject ink from last week, almost made itself.
I find myself in love with this coral color lately. Want to color the whole world coral :)

Awesome documentary on Annie Leibovitz: parts 1 2 3 4 5 6 —the whole thing lasts an hour. And left this little blogger speechless with admiration!

Whatta week

I hope your Sunday is soooothing :-)
Mine is. I have slow food cooking in the oven, and have made rosewater-lemon-filling for the macarons I will go make in a couple of minutes. A cuppa Joe is within my reach, and I have just enjoyed a slice of oat-wheat bread, fresh from the oven. Ahh-yes, a soothing Sunday indeed.

On top of a busy busy week. A week in which I received this wonderful gift from sweet Aimee, and didn't have the minutes to share it! Busybusybusy. In the good way, fortunately, and not the can't-feel-my-toes-way. Don't like that kind of busy!

Tomorrow Tina and I will meet, and take pictures and laugh and play. Valentines is coming up, and I have a feeling those rose-lemony macarons-yet-to-be-made will have a role to play ...

Time Traveling

Went to a great flee market yesterday. The building that held it is an old shipyard building, with so much atmosphere—even without the fog! But as an extra treat, it was wrapped in thick, grey fog. There were hardly anyone there, and standing next to the old walls, holding my breath in the damp morning, I could almost hear the singing of steel, and the yellin' of workers.

A couple of hours later, I went home, my head buzzing with history, carrying a small nightstand I'd bought at a ridiculously low price :-)

Wiki: Burmeister & Wain Shipyard

Have illustrations featured in

... this month. I so love this magazine. On top of being full of interesting articles and inspiring recepies, it's absolutely beautiful!
I'm very grateful to be a part of this.

I know I've posted links to these guys before, but have to again —there's new stuff on their pages, and one shouldn't miss it :-)

Saturday, You Are Sweet

Today we went to town for a little shopping trip, and among other places, we went to the old Copenhagen bon bon factory Sømods Bolcher. Situated in a backyard, behind the facades of the city, this little old shop and factory, where you can watch the candy makers make the bon bons, is a little view into ancient Copenhagen. The atmosphere is incredible, and the bon bons are magnifiscent! :-)

Cool graphic design at Bobby McKennas :)

Happy weekend!

Stayin' in the crafty department to make more Coffee Owls. Have a wonderful Coffee Owl-opportunity comin up, but can't say more until March ;o)

I've been so eager to share these newly purchased glass eyes. It's been quite the pursuit, I have seen many many many glass eyes, and there they were—just the right ones (and in great many sizes and colors), and my heart jumped with joy. Not to mention when they arrived, purchased glass eyes being even prettier in real life.
