Winter supplies


Here in Denmark, we're enjoying a warm September, and although the natural treasures are diminishing along with the length of daylight hours, we can still find plenty of nice things out there.
You still have enough time to collect and store valuable vitamins that you can enjoy later on a cold, windy winter's day.

Recently, when I was enjoying a nice and quiet afternoon, I found both elderberries, rosehip and blackberries to use for juices, marmelades and other tasty things. Apart from that, you can find mushrooms, apples, herbs and other natural treasures. Just be careful and make sure that you know what's edible and what's poisonous.
Nature is full of unused resources so get ready to go hunting.

A heart of stone…

Usually, when I think of the expression ”a heart of stone”, I think of a callous person, but now this term has come to have a completely different meaning to me.

On a cold day with heavy rain, we decided to brave the weather and go down the longest and best-preserved Middle Age road in Denmark which ends by the foot of Kalø Castle.

Considering when this castle was constructed, it’s actually very nicely built, and despite it being rather uneven in many places, it’s a good place to look down.
And that’s exactly what I did on that Sunday. I looked down and saw the most beautiful stone on the ground, like a peaceful and heart-felt greeting from a time in the past when peace probably wasn’t the first thing that’d come to your mind.

Remember to take in what’s around you...look up and down, near and far....and cherish it all.

Just as expected...

The first summer here at the Jeanne D’Arc Living farm is definitely fulfilling all our expectations.
It’s just as wonderful as we expected it to be.

Absolutely beautiful nature and a quietness that automatically reduces stress.
And summer has added to the amazing atmosphere too.

Everything is blossoming in the marvelous, old garden, and no matter where you sit down, you feel like you’re in a world of your own.
We’ve already moved in and have produced the first articles.

We wish you all a very nice summer!

Spring at our new farm...

We’re really enjoying the first lovely spring days here at our new farm.
Just look at those flowers in the stone wall – aren’t they just charming?

The reconstruction work is progressing as planned and the first rooms are ready for our first photo shooting. We’re just so excited and can’t wait to start decorating!

We’ve been shopping at markets and in shops, and we’ve searched high and low in lofts and hidden rooms to find the right things.
Here we can furnish and decorate just the way we love it with lots of old furniture, floor-length curtains and all that…..we’re simply loving it.
Can you imagine what it’ll all look like?

We just received a shipment of home textiles and clothing this week, which means lots of activity around here: unpacking, counting inventory, ironing and setting up for photos.
We're all in full swing. Here's a small sneak peek.

Check out all of the new items on our website.
