I happened to be watching a Rick Steves show on Denmark and in the show they were describing a way of living that they had. It was called hyggelig (hoo.gl.ee). This hyggelig meant you always have a drink, some food, and at the very least a candle between you and your company. It meant feeling cozy at the very base translation of the word but actually much more, it was your surroundings without anything that would make you feel ill at ease or emotionally overwhelmed. It was actually the pursuit of serenity, of comfy, of homey, of anything that brought that warm fuzzy to your soul.

My jaw dropped at this Danish discovery of self. That one single word summed up the pursuit of my entire life. Hyggelig!!! This blog is about just that, all the things that make me feel hyggelig. My only hope is that they inspire you to find your own hyggelig too. Imagine a world full of hyggelig, just imagine...

Pretty Privacy

Do you have a glass door cabinet in your bathroom with all your grooming products there for the world to see? Well, I did too and I thought it was a bit unsightly and not so pretty to look at.

I had some very pretty thick scrap booking paper on hand that by chance had the same exact blue in it as the bathroom walls. So, I cut and taped it to the backside of the doors for a nice little upgrade and a bit of privacy. Worked out lovely and in fact has inspired me with a few more future ideas for the bath.
