hoard or collect - christmas baubles

Some of these are from my childhood, others we've picked up here and there. I don't recall a year passing when we haven't added another bauble or decoration to the collection. I photographed these as I packed away after Christmas 2013, so this isn't quite everything that we have to adorn our tree this year. I'm not sure yet when we'll get the tree up, we're usually quite last minute in this house. But if you're keen to see how it'll look, I imagine it won't be too different from how it was here, just a little more on it!

art in aarhus

How time flies, we've been back home over a month and I'm only just sharing this! So unless you follow me on Instagram you won't know that we spent a couple of weeks of September visiting Denmark and Sweden. We hung out in Aarhus [Denmark's second largest city] a pretty nice place to hang about, we immediately felt at home there but that might have been more to do with staying in a really nice neighbourhood in a great apartment we found on airbnb. That and the huge modern art gallery that's ARoS [where all these images were taken] and the great shops full of oodles of beautifully designed things that I wanted to fill my case with and bring home, plus some really good coffee along the way.  

Art by Ebbe Stub WittrupWes Lang, Ron Mueck and others.

garden moodboard - september 2014

September has been a busy month for us, first a much needed holiday [which I'll post about soon] and then a friends wedding. We've not spent as much time outside in our garden as in other months, though when we have I've enjoyed the colours so much, the vibrant dahlias, chrysanthemums and pelargoniums are just so prolific and zingy.

[Each month I join Karin and Åsa in this series of monthly moodboards].
