Lollipop balloons

I saw something like these lollipop balloons ages ago and couldn’t remember where or what they looked like so I made my own version for Hello Bee. I thought they were the perfect pairing for the candy lights I made for Christmas. Can you tell I have a (reluctant) sweet tooth?

Branch hunt

Paul and I went on a branch-finding mission on Saturday and he knew just the place. To get to work he rides through a nearby nature preserve that has its share of discarded branches. We struck gold with piles of branches, but also came across the most lovely wildflowers in various shades of purples, yellows, and pinks. I brought them home and assembled them into some simple, wild arrangements including some luscious sweet peas, which are super hard to work with I found out. I also found out that water pitchers must suffice for a lack of vases in the house.

This Week

Since I never get bored about talking about the weather, let’s discuss. Copenhagen did not have a cloud in the sky this whole week. BLISSSSSSS! I wore sandals! Without tights! I refuse to have someone rain on my parade (literally) and tell me about the thunderstorms tomorrow night.

House update

Our house has undergone a major facelift within the past few weeks and I must say that it is lookin good. Remember what it looked like before? Brick with a red tile roof. Our landlords, who live on the bottom two floors (we live on the top), have replaced the roof with a black tile roof, plastered it and painted it white and added really lovely windows. And we are most happy that there is now insulation. Yes, after they tore off the roof it was discovered that there was none, which explains so much about why it’s just as cold inside as it is outside during the winter.

Outfit to Room: I



I am super pumped to introduce a guest new column, Outfit to Room, written by Katie Farber of This, That, + the Other. Katie was one of my very first blogging friends who I met in real life a few years back at her darling apartment in NYC. We just had so much in common and it’s been great fun to see each other grow and progress in life and careers. In a way she’s kind of been like a childhood pen pal. We’ve been trying to figure out how to collaborate for quite sometime and I finally asked if she would bring this column that she writes for on her blog to Lars because I love it so so much. So, without further ado…

Brittany and I have a lot in common: we’ve both sported cropped blonde pixie cuts; have an affinity for a particular Georgetown home from our Washington, DC days; and have a never-ending love for Domino Magazine’s “Turn this Outfit into a Room” column. While the magazine has been partially resurrected, this regular featured (sadly) has not. So, in the midst of winter I decided to start recreating my own version.
