happy X-mas

I wish everyone a very happy Christmas with lots of love and nice people to lounge with and some good wine !


Living inside a Christmas card....our village looks amazing and peaceful in white! This canal near our house is frozen and save to enter so the girls went skating today. I forgot my camera this time....


stars and green

The girls and I decorated the Christmas tree with shiny balls (some of which are realy old - with a characteristic dent in the middle) and handmade stuff of the kids of ages ago. Afterwards we sat down to admire our tree, but the three of us didn't enjoy it so much. What was wrong? We decided to decorate it all over again. This time with the new handmade thingies like the Warm Hearts of woolen blankets and the crochet flowers... We sat down and now it was perfect, a nice mix of today and of what used to be...

Here's the answer where you can get the lovely white tree from previous blog post;
