Sooo I'm actually in Stockholm right now - but I've been meaning to post about Copenhagen since we left several days ago. We stayed in an amazing apartment right on Frederiksborggade which was perfectly located for exploring. Many an hour was spent wandering the streets, and with the incredible weather we made the most of the beautiful parks and gardens. We spent an afternoon visiting The David Collection, which has an impressive collection of Islamic Art from the 8th to the 19th century, and had an enjoyable morning at the Designmuseum Damark - their Hans J. Wegner and Poul Kjærholm furnished cafe was very cool. All in all Copenhagen has become one of my favourite cities and I'd love to go back. A few other things that caught my eye whilst there...

Delicate ceramics at Keramik & Glasværkstedet, including this lovely pot by Annemette Kissow.

Incredibly yummy (and healthy) meals, juices, smoothies etc at Granola. Thanks to Juli & John of Kitka for the recommendation.
Creamy ice creams and bars by Hansens - not to mention their fab packaging!

North's simple and stylish swimwear. Plus they also have an inspiring travel blog.

The wonderful collection of homewear, ceramics, and jewellery at Stilleben

The Royal Cafe - a mad mix of colour with yummy cakes and a lovely courtyard.

And Malene Helbak's rather fetching ceramic containers. 

The past few days we've been in Sweden staying on Lidingö, exploring the woods, visiting Millesgården, and enjoying island life. And now we're tucked away in the quaint Columbus Hotel in Stockholm until we fly home on Friday. Thanks for stopping by - I hope all is well in your part of the world.

  4. Sounds like you had a wonderful time! You've taken some amazing photos!

    I'll admit I'm a terrible sister and only just found this blog - I'd been following your photo blog recently and love it, but only found this one by chance (btw, Lisa B. wanted to see your India photos so I linked her to your flickr if that's okay?).
    Oh, and I was rummaging at Dad's today and found what seems to be a little cardboard box of your jewellery? It had a couple of really cute little rings (a turtle and an elephant, I think?) and some elephant beads, and a prefect badge with your initials on the back? Amongst other things! Sound familiar?
