Hooray! My greenhouse is finished. It allows us to lengthen a late-summer dinner with several hours!

I got all front windows from a friend that replaced his own. The windows are 80 years old and in perfect condition (just some new putty around the edges and paint). My neighbour found the windows on the side. He found them in the inner city of Copenhagen next to an appartment block that is renovated (ooooold windows, my best guess is 1890). The doors are made from scratch. 
I like old glass, it deforms the things you see through it. According to my father in law, a light architect, the colour of the light is much better than modern double windows, so I think so too...

Lucerna non alcoholico

I've had this plan for years, actually, since the first time I drunk Crodino ("aperitivo non alcoholico"). Extremely cute bottles deserve better than being thrown away. So finally, I turned 4 cuties into bitter-sweet lightning.

The stand is made of 2 layers of thick multiplex glued together

Greenhouse furniture

Made of 3 old doors and a handfull of skrews; my new greenhouse furniture

20 Round Things

During a walk to the local icecream cafe, my kids found 20 circular things. 
We also saw a lizard but it wasn't round, so that didn't count.
