Spotted Photo Theme: Winter Trees

One thing that I really like about Christmas is the tree. My favorite kind of fir tree is the snow covered tree, growing in the forest. So far there hasn’t been any snow at all where I live (last night it was raining for two hours!), but I’m still picking the fir tree as my […]

A house in the dark

A house in the dark

I have had this white metal house for years, but not until tonight it occurred to me to open the bottom and stick a candle inside it. I’m so glad I did. I have an endless fascination with the lit candles and the way light moves, reflects and warms us. Especially in a dark Swedish […]

It’s snowing outside right now, and have been doing that since yesterday. I really want to crochet this, any ideas on how? Pattern please! Winter is here to stay I guess – I need to go back to autumn times (September 20th) and enjoy a day when the light came through my window. At least […]
