A good friend of mine has let me have a lot of photos from the celebration of the liberation in Copenhagen after five years of German occupation. She herself was 10 months old and is taken around in a white pram or baby carriage with her six-year older brother close to where they lived in Amager, an island in connection […]
I would like to show you a shop filled with modern furniture and design interior things. The name of the store is X-Akt. You can see the many different things here. It’s tucked away and difficult to find even for me who have lived here for 21 years. It started as an appendix to a gas station but has developed […]

I am travelling in Germany just now and would like to show you small impressions from this tour that came from wanting to run in Dresden in Germany. When I come back I will make a post about Leipzig and Berlin. Dresden and Leipzig are situated in the former East Germany so their history is both their former good times, […]

I found it so emotional that I left a bit early to enjoy the buildings and streets of the Copenhagen I still love. Twice I heard church bells ringing.
Twice I have been at the Royal Library in Copenhagen to scan the old catalogs from different Danish pram firms from the last century. It’s been so interesting to see the many firms competing on making the most beautiful models. I am sure that those who did the original ones must have been frustrated many times as their models were […]
Looking back 60-80 years at families with small children in the streets of Copenhagen
#WeekendCoffeeShare 29 May If we were having coffee I would tell you that I have been very occupied finding old catalogues on former days’ prams or baby carriers. My whole life I have been fascinated by the designs of these useful things from especially the forties and the fifties. In my research I was lucky to find a few catalogues […]

I love to see the nature in just the colour of spring. I am thinking […]
