A Weekend With…. Kristie of North of 49

Hygge has gone worldwide this year. The Great Dane Invasion started in the UK in September 2016, but really only just hit the USA and Canada in January 2017. That doesn’t mean that they didn’t have hygge before. There are enough Danish ex-pats and descendants in the North of America to mean that hygge has been there for quite a while now.   Today’s blogger … Continue reading A Weekend With….

A Weekend with…. Cheryl from My Little Piece of England

Some weekends are made for fun, aren’t they? I have a very quiet weekend planned, starting with a quiet meal in tonight and a day spent with my children tomorrow. The days are lengthening well now and I can see that evenings spent in the garden are getting closer. I am so looking forward to getting the fire-pit working again.

Hygge Book: The Spring House by Alison May

Alison May writes a blog called Brocante Home, a site dedicated to fluffiness and fripperies and creating a Life Less Ordinary. It doesn’t sound very hyggely, does it? And, indeed the site itself could hardly be further from the clear, bare Scandi-chic interiors that hygge is usually paired with. But you know I call my blog How to Hygge the British Way for a reason, … Continue reading Hygge Book: The Spring House by Alison May

A Weekend with… Christina of A Colourful Life

Friday already! How the time flies! And I’ve been working hard again this week. Between my official office work for Peter and my desperate attempts to write a book about hygge, I have been burning every candle at both ends. Not very hyggely! But I’m looking forward to a more relaxing weekend. Last weekend I spent some time looking back over Attic 24′s archives and … Continue reading A Weekend with… Christina of A Colourful Life

A Weekend with… Lucy of Attic 24

My first A Weekend With… post starts off with a heroine of the blogging world… Lucy from Attic 24. If you are a crocheter, the chances are you’ve either heard of her, follow her, seen her patterns being used by others or know someone who loves her home. She lives in Skipton, and posts picture of her home town regularly. She also helps to organise and … Continue reading A Weekend with… Lucy of Attic 24

Hello, and how are you this beautiful Tuesday morning? Today is International Hygge Day and I’m pleased to say I’ve seen quite a few hashtags already on Facebook and Twitter. There’s a special #hyggehour on Twitter at 8pm British time tonight, and plenty of time to do something hyggely today. My International Hygge Day is quite simple: Work until 6pm, make dinner, make pancakes and … Continue reading Happy #internationalhyggeday!
