Thrift Store Findings

A little while ago I went on a tour to the local thrift shops. I've had great luck with that before, I love it!

I live far from the capital - maybe this is why I always find so many great things, the crowds don't come here. :o) Or maybe other people wouldn't ever consider buying what I bought, but I think they're all little treasures.

This time was even better than usual because one of the shops had 50% off on everything - that's 50% off on a price that's already ridiculously low. So I went a little mad:

There were embroidered pillowcases

Old photo frames, as good as new

Adorable handkerchiefs

20 (!) zippers and some sewing thread

Children's books from the 70's (I just love the drawings)

And finally, the findings above all findings: old knitting books! I almost fainted when I saw them.

They are amazing! Patterns for women, men, children, toddlers, babies, dolls... So great. :o))

14th of February

I have a confession. I don't celebrate Valentine's Day. In fact I think it's pretty silly. One might even say that I dislike it.
It's not so much the fact that it's another American tradition that seems to have spread to every part of the world. It's not even that I'm not romantic or sentimental, on the contrary. It takes nothing to bring tears to my eyes and I love getting presents.
But the thought of rereiving flowers and/or chocolate from my loved one because someone (a florist, maybe?) decided that today is an important day almost makes me sick.

But in my family we do celebrate February 14th, we celebrate because it truly is an important day! Today is the day Dagmar was born, my dear little niece. She will be 2 years old today.

Happy Birthday, Dagmar!

Now, the only question is, what's next? ;o)

Welcome to Freckle's Blog!

I'm so excited about writing my very first blog post. Finally I have the time to show you some of the things I love.

I've been thinking about starting my own blog for a good while now. I didn't really know if I should because I felt that there are so many fantastic blogs out there, so what could I contribute with?

Anyway, the idea didn't leave me alone and here I am - starting a blog. :o)

So who am I?

I'm a mother. And I'm a crafty person. I'm also a wife. And a pianist. I'm a student too and I'm Danish.

What I want to show you today is a brand new design I made. I call it HATS HATS HATS because I imagined piles of hats when I got the idea.

You get the idea? Colours! And stripes. Ahhh, that makes me happy. The hat comes in size newborn up to 6 years. It will available very soon for download on ravelry and in the meantime you can buy them (along with some other stuff) in my etsy shop or on amio if you know Danish. ;o)
