Art in Cooenhagen - yes, i love it!

Det desiderte kunsthøydepunktet i København var Hilma af Klint (1862-1944) på Louisiana. Wow!
I had a great day at Louisiana, museum of modern art. My main goal for the weekend trip was the Hilma af Klint exhibition, but there were plenty of other colourful highlights as well.

Emil Nolde (1867-1956)-utstillingen var også omfattende - og jeg hadde allerede vært noen timer sammen med Hilma, og jammen et par timer med Philip Guston (1913-1980) også, når jeg kom hit. For meg var Noldes sterkeste arbeider de koloristiske - her er et par detaljer. Og jammen fant jeg en god match i disse brosjene i museumsbutikken. Herlig!

Shopping in Copenhagen - yes, I love it!

On my way to Jægerborgs gade yesterday I realised this is flee market/street market day in Nørrebro... But hey! I was on a mission to get a bowl of the epic porridge (have a look at yesterday's post) so I kept to my plan and did all my vintage/flea shopping at one single stand. I even broke my "no clothes shopping for a year" pledge here! This is what I got for 250,- DKR: a beautiful porcelain bowl (for classy porridge serving ;o) )

...a slip dress, a Noa Noa handbag, a vintage pin cushion with vintage hat pins hat pin has a miniature embroidery!

...a cerise skirt, a green cardie and a multi coloured handbag (quite worn but still fun and charming)

...a brand new pink leather clutch (from Bungalow), a beautiful Indian mirror belt

...a small and very versatile leather purse

And then, at "Lady's fingers" in Jægersborgs gade; this very precious and beautiful silver heart pendant handmade by jeweller Mette Juhl

A true bargain to finish off this materialistic post: Fly of London shoes at a 50 % discount!

Ekte kjærlighet // true love

Kopenhagen is a true weekend favourite! I am not going to let dear Trondheim down, but all my photos from that trip still need sorting. Here and now I just have to share some happy glimpses from the capital of Denmark. The bright yellow poster reads "Pure love for Copenhagen" and sits on every trash bin all over the city. What a brilliant way to encourage people to keep it tidy! I love it!
My lunch today was porridge at "Grød" ("Porridge") in Nørrebro. If you are in town, don´t miss this particular street ("Jægerborgs gade") - a 150 m stretch of independent little shops, like jewellers, pottery makers, chocolateries etc... + a variety of restaurants and cofee shops, AND a villagy feel. Love it! And the porridge? Love it!


Entering Jægerborgs gade. Love it!

Palads Kino ("Palace Cinema") in Vesterbro, close to the central train station. Who needs to go inside to escape from the trivialities of life? Love it! 

Bicycling is big in Cph - beware the designated lanes! Love it! The photo was taken mainly because the cool milk commercial, also in Vesterbro; "1/2 a litre of milk - every day, all your life". Love it!

The Hotel Astoria (Central train station to the left). Love it!

...more to come; I am not one for killing my sweethearts this time. I will let them all have their deserved attention around here. The attention from my keen eye and my iPhone, that is ;o)
