Kompa’9 …. the cutest little café in Copenhagen.

Last week I was in Copenhagen for a portrait shoot and as I was scouting for good places to photograph my subject, we stumbled upon this little gem of a café/restaurant/coffee shop. If rustic utilitarian chic is your thing, as it is mine, you most certainly do not want this one to go amiss.  I… Continue reading Kompa’9 …. the cutest little café in Copenhagen.

Awaiting Spring…..

Spring has not sprung just yet….not in my garden anyway.  I cannot wait until I can prune a few branches from the pear tree with blossoms to brighten up corners and tables in my home.  Not to mention lilac, beautiful lilac.

Raspberry Slices…. a real Danish treat.

Snowy Saturdays….

snowy saturdays

On snowy Saturdays… mornings start late

and lattes are enjoyed in bed

Wood gets chopped for the fire

Wooden sleighs get taken for a ride

long may the memory last

of snowy Saturdays

for now the stardust magic has melted away…..

Turning 40 and doing what I love……

It has been such a long time since I have been on here, but there are a few good reasons though.  So hopefully you will forgive me my long silence. First of all I turned 40 in October and to celebrate this rather big milestone, be it I still only feel about 25, we visited… Continue reading Turning 40 and doing what I love……
