Let's get cosy

Wednesday, November 30, 2005


I love beeing able to stay at home all day long and lighting up lots of candles, drinking a hot cup of aromatic tea and listening to Bing Crosby's christmas songs at this dark time of the year. Oh how I'm looking forward to the weekend!

Today it's time

1st of Advent

Sunday, November 27, 2005


This my kind of advent wreath.

First snow!

Saturday, November 26, 2005


Yesterday afternoon I was hanging my "Let it snow" wood sign at the front door and believe it or not it has worked :D


Office decoration

Friday, November 25, 2005

x-mas stockings


I popped out my x-mas stockings last week and left them on a basket, when I saw them yesterday I suddenly thought that they would look good on a photo, just like this, lying on the basket, what do you think? I've just been to lazy to hang them up on my stairs just yet.

I've got mail!

Monday, November 21, 2005


These are all the postcards I've got so far from the swap. A big thank you goes out to Julie/USA, Wendy/Scotland (for all two cards :D), Robyn/Australia, Peggy/USA, Brandy/USA, Melissa/USA and Kali/Australia!



I've shot these window photos at our friends cottage this last weekend.

I'm back from my trip

Sunday, November 20, 2005


Hello I'm back from the trip to see our friends. We've had a very good time and these are all my little treasures, that I've brought home :D Some things I've crafted, some things I got as presents from our dear friend and some I bought in Schleswig and Kappeln, like the stickers, the cards, the golden stamp and the red christmas tin sign. I even sewed some hearts, normally sewing isn't my favourite thing to do, but sitting all together and crafting and chatting was really fun.

And my two Angels have got a new friend, the bottom one, crafted by my friend and partly by myself:

A Christmas/Winter Collage

Wednesday, November 16, 2005


Click on it to enlarge the photo! It's fun doing Christmas Collages. I'ts already my second one and I'm currently working on my third one. I'm thinking about giving one of them as gift to our dear friend that we're going to visit tomorrow.

And that's what it looks like when I took the pic with flash, all cold and frosty, doesn't it?

Don't you just love it

to open your boxes with all the christmas treasures that you have collected over the years? I certainly enjoy it every year. Here are a few of mine:

Saved from the frost!

We've started with the x-mas/winter decoration outside yesterday. Oh I love that! I'm away for a few days next week/weekend, so I had to begin this weekend in order to be prepared for the first of advent on November 27th.

More of Mum's garden decoration

because I like the photos and I think they are worth to show them.

It's complete!

Thursday, November 10, 2005


Here they are, the last four pages of my first altered book, no more blank pages left!

It has 52 pages! :D Now I'll have to think about a possibility to close it, because it's very thick. Maybe I'll have to drill a hole in it for a ribbon or even some kind of a lock.

Everything is ready and prepared for the winter!

Wednesday, November 9, 2005


Bulbs are planted, leaves are recycled, birdhouses and birdfeedinghouses are clean and ready, plants are wrapped up warm or ready to bring them in quickly. My heat has been repaired this morning. The winter can come! But instead my hyancinthus is starting to blossom again because it is still warm.

Beautiful Butterfly in November!

Monday, November 7, 2005


The Admiral (that is how we do call him here) finally came to visit my garden yesterday. I've been waiting for him the whole summer and he comes in November. He was late, but I was so happy that he finally came. It was another warm and sunny fall day yesterday and I followed him with my camera through the garden. Here is the result :D

"Garden Days"

Yep it's b&w again!

If you wanna see it bigger just click on the pic.

Mum's autumn/fall decoration


Does that need any words?

Oh my luve


"Oh my luve's like a red red rose"

I think Robert Burns must have talked about a rose like this in his beautiful poem.

P.S.: I took this photo in my parents house.

Time for another glimpse ;-)
