Hi, I’m Tina.
I love to enjoy my freshly ground Hazelnut flavoured coffee and nature walks in the morning by myself. Creating small spells of quiet time is essential to me. I’m the most happy when I finish a sewing project with a good result exceeding my expectations.
Welcome to this corner of my creative world. I hope you will want to stay a few minutes and that you will find some inspiration.
This blog has a solid foundation in my life long interest in sewing and nutrition. Already as a little girl I was sewing my own dresses out of old bed sheets and cooking funny dishes with what I could find in our garden. So it seems natural that first I became a nutritionist, the sensible choice. Then later a women’s tailor, the passionate choice.
I always loved making something out of nothing. Therefore I very often work with what I have got, what nature supplies me with and what I can thrift or reuse. This blog is my creative outlet. This is where I will show my re-fashion projects. It is also where I will document my whole food plant based journey that I began January 2020. To sum it up, most of my work has a solid base in nature, recycling and then sprinkled with a bit of nostalgia.
A bit about my life.
I’m 50 years old and I still live in the area of Denmark where I grew up, after having lived in various other places, including other countries (South Africa, Great Britain, Brazil and Chile). In 2013 my two children, my british husband and I moved into an old house from the 1970’s. I love my home town, and most of my photos are taken in our local area. After years of longing to return to my birth place Aarhus, I treasure every minute I get to spend in the countryside of east Jutland. I have grown into being a huge fan of staycation and getting to know and appreciate your local area. Spending some time finding all the secret spectacular places near you is truly fulfilling.

Live the best version of you
This blog is also a reflection of my journey towards that goal. Living sustainably and with creative fulfilment. I’m a huge believer in getting to live the best version of you, just by starting and learn how to work with what you’ve already got. Starting with yourself, one step at a time.
Good things take time.
Please enjoy, Tina
