I’m BACK IN THE HABIT! – Sister Act 2 reference!

According to wikipedia, dansk is “…a North Germanic language spoken by around six million people, principally in the country of Denmark.” BUT, it also is the amazing style of rounded wooden housewares and furniture, typical of the danish aesthetic of the 1960’s (mid-century modern). It is very famous and beloved, but also, now that there is this 60’s-‘modern’-revival thing happening, occasionally it is supa expensive. But if you are lucky, and hone your garage sale hunting skills, you can find some beautiful pieces of this stuff for pretty cheap.  And look at it! It is worth the hunting.

(By the way, Wary Meyers, who I talked about a while back are HUGE fans of the ‘dansk’ style and always use it so well in their rooms…)
