On Etsy since 2011

Retro values with a Scandinavian twist

I have always loved decorating and entertaining. So it was only natural for me to want to share what I love. For as long as I can remember, I have sewn, knitted and embroidered my way through life, creating countless projects for friends, family and myself. When that was no longer enough, Domestic Heaven happened.

My inspiration for opening a shop on Etsy was a love of fabrics and crafts and a slight obsession with vintage style aprons and home furnishings.

I have always been very fond of the 1930's, -40's and -50's. Not just for the fabulous style from those days, but because it was a simpler time in many ways. People weren't in such a rush and they had a deep appreciation for quality and craftmanship. People still had their clothes made by a tailor. Cakes were made from butter, sugar, flour and eggs, not from a mix in a box. Dishes weren't done in a machine, people carefully washed them in the kitchen sink with a pretty apron tied around their waist.

Somewhere along the way, we have gotten too busy to take our time to enjoy and appreciate the small things in life. We eat off of disposable plates because it saves us of those 5 minutes it takes to load the dishwasher. We decorate our homes with white and beige, because it means we don't have to spend time mixing and matching colors and prints. And with so many colors to choose from, that's a shame.

So in this world of beige and paper plates, Domestic Heaven is my little splash of color, my infusion of something down-to-earth. It's a collection of handmade goodies for your home, your next party, your child, your favorite holiday or a gift for someone special. My style is a bit of retro mixed in with Scandinavian light-heartedness. To me, each item should contain joy and color. In appreciation of nature, I strive to use primarily natural fibers.

My muses will always be my family and friends, who keep me happy and inspire me to keep doing what I love.

I hope you enjoy my shop - please feel free to contact me if you have any questions. If you want to stay updated on news, special offers and my current inspirations, follow me on Facebook and Twitter.

Shop policies

Welcome to Domestic Heaven!

Thank you for taking the time to read my shop policies page. If anything below is not clear or you have a question, please get in touch and I will be glad to help.

All my items have been hand made with great thought, love and attention, entirely by me.

All items are made in my home in Denmark. My home is smoke-free, but pet-friendly, so if you have allergies, please message me for details. All fabrics and knits have been washed with environmentally friendly detergents only.

While I strive to create the best items that I can, I have found that slight irregularities are part of the handmade process and only add to the charm of each item.

But please contact me if you have any problems with your order.
The following items can't be returned or exchanged
Because of the nature of these items, unless they arrive damaged or defective, I can't accept returns for:

  • Perishable products (like food or flowers)

  • Intimate items (for health/hygiene reasons)
Returns and exchange details
I do my best to describe and ensure that each item arrives to you and meets every expectation. If for some reason you are unhappy with your purchase, please contact me within 3 days of receiving your order so we can resolve things together.

Please keep in mind that the charm of buying hand made items is just that; they're hand made, by a human being instead of a machine. Which means that no two items are alike and that irregularities may occur.

I will issue refunds provided you post your item back promptly and at your own cost. I will refund the purchase price once the item has been shipped back to me. Shipping charges are not refundable. No refunds or returns on custom orders. Items must be returned unworn, unwashed and in original condition.

All sales on discounted SALE items are final. SALE items are not refundable.

Please remember that computer monitors differ in color and texture - I do my best to photograph and describe each item accurately, however please remember your monitor may differ slightly.

Also, please take note of the care instructions given for each item. I offer no guarantees for items that are mistreated or not cared for according to instructions. Care instructions are given in the listing you purchased. If in doubt, feel free to convo me.
All prices are listed in US dollars.

Payment can be made via Paypal. This is an easy online payment service – you do not have to be a member and can use a major credit card for your purchase. Payment is processed through a secure site.

You may also pay via direct checkout, through which you can pay with the credit cards accepted by Etsy.

Etsy gift cards are also accepted.

Payment is required at time of purchase. If payment is not made within 48 hours of purchase, I reserve the right to cancel your order. Please let me know if there is a problem meeting this timeframe (I will attempt to contact buyer first).

Custom orders must be pre-paid in full. I will start working on your order as soon as I receive payment. Custom orders will usually ship within 2-6 weeks, depending on the item and my current workload. Please message me for further details.

If you wish to cancel your order, please do so within 24 hours, as 'ready to ship' items are often shipped 1-2 days after the order comes through.
***COVID-19 INFORMATION*** I still pack and ship my orders as I normally do. However, due to the Covid-19 pandemic, delivery times may differ quite a bit from the norm, as customs and postal services worldwide are greatly affected at this time. I am asking you to please have patience with these hard-working people, who are doing their best to deliver your orders.

For more specific information on delays in customs and postal deliveries, please consult your local agencies.

Thank you so much!


Items ready to ship are shipped within 1-3 days of receiving payment. Items made to order will usually ship within 2-6 weeks, depending on the item and my current workload. I will start working on your order as soon as I receive payment. Please message me for further details. I will notify you once your order has been shipped.

Please note that I cannot be held responsible for any delays in local customs.

All items are shipped via first class air mail through the Danish postal service (Post Danmark), but will arrive through your local postal service.First class air mail does not include a tracking number. If you wish to have your purchase shipped with a tracking number, this is a possibility. Please note that the cost is quite a bit higher. Please contact me for a shipping quote.

Shipping costs are approximated. I pack all items carefully and ship in brand new or clean used boxes or envelopes.

If you live outside the European Union there might be an additional sales tax or customs charge added to your order upon delivery. This can vary from country to country, so if you are in doubt, please check up on this in advance through your local customs.

Please note:
- Items will be shipped to your address listed on Etsy. Please be sure that the provided address is correct or contact me if there is an error. Items returned to me due to incorrect address will require payment of the shipping costs in order to have them resent.
- All shipping costs (including any customs tariffs if applicable) are the responsibility of the Buyer.
- Items are packaged securely to ensure safe delivery.
- Packages will not be considered lost until 6 weeks have passed from the date of shipping.

If an item is received in poor condition due to damage by post, an exchange item may be offered. However, I must be notified within 5 days of the customer receiving the item, and require photographic evidence of the damage sustained.

Denmark: 2-3 business days
EU countries: 5-10 business days to destination country + customs
Everywhere else: 7-14 business days to destination country + customs
**Above delivery times are approximate. Please take into account that there may be delays in customs and that your local postal services may have excessive workloads during busy periods, such as national holidays.**

Please keep in mind that my country may have different national holidays than yours, which may delay delivery slightly.

I am happy when you are happy - please contact me with images and information if you are disappointed with your item and I'll try to offer a solution.

I can also ship directly to your gift recipient & add a little note if desired (If so, please also write the message you want to be included in the 'Message to seller' when you check out) or convo me as soon as you have placed your order.

I respond to all convos as soon as possible, usually within a few hours. Although, please take into consideration that we may be in different time zones. As far as languages go, I communicate in English and Danish, but I also understand both Swedish and Norwegian.
