It's been some crazy busy couple of weeks here lately.
The reason; this little cutie pie, of course.
You'll get a proper introduction later,
right now I'm just popping by to wish you all happy holidays.
May your days be filled with joy and laughter, love and happiness.
See you soon.

When you are one week past your due date, you’re allowed to have cake cravings on a Monday.
I think it's definitely time for our baby boy to step out of his safe world now,
so we can celebrate it all with a coconut cake.
Happy Monday!

advent calendar

Very happy with our advent calendar made by my husband – a plywood tree.
I've seen different versions of this one on the web for some time, and wanted something similar.
The idea is to actually make it look like a tree eventually, we just haven't come to that step yet.
Looks like it's my turn to open up a present today.

Not a big fan of over-the-top-decorated-Christmas-homes.
That's why I love the xmas styling in this Copenhagen based apartment.
All you need is some white and green, some stars and presents, and you are good to go.

I've had a scented candle addiction for many years.
And this addiction has just become worse over the last years.
I've gone from reasonable priced candles from the local shop, to really expensive ones,
with fancy brand names, exotic ingredients and nice packaging.
My last obsession is Safran Officinale by Mad Et Len.
Got to have this one.

We've been very back and forth with our wardrobe planning.
Immediately after buying the house, I started on planning the perfect walk-in wardrobe.
At the same time, we were also planning large and airy open spaces.
And since we're doing our renovation in several stages, and are planning on extending our house,
we realized that a walk-in wardrobe wasn't what we wanted anymore.
At least not on this floor of the house.

So we ended up buying Montana Wardrobe units, and try to live by the rule "less is more".
And I must say, I've never been more happier with a wardrobe solution than I am right now.
We played safe with a white base, but I think we also managed to put our own twist on the whole solution.
The color yellow has been a favorite for many years, so it was natural to implement yellow in our wardrobe.
Above you can see some snaps, so you can get an idea of how it all turned out.
I’ll be back with more pics some other day.

girly stuff

Since our bedroom is very simple and monochrome, non-feminine,
I wanted a shelf behind our bed, so I could have some girly stuff on display.
My hubby made a shelf out of a wooden plank and painted it in the same color as the wall.
It turned out exactly the way I pictured it and I couldn't be happier.
Ah, the little things in life...
Happy weekend!

Love the cover of Cereal vol 8, the winter volume.
Can't wait to read about Kluane.
