Soon it´s Christmas...

Dear Readers,

As you may have noticed, I have not been very active on updating my blog during this month. I guess it´s because there are soooo many impulses around Christmas time how you could decorate your house. Not that I wouldn´t be keen on puting all our Christmas stuff up late November but this year I have tried to not stress about the whole wonderful feast. So far I have managed quite well, I would say. I love buying gifts for family and loved ones around me and now that they are all stored, I have time to update my blog again. I guess the real reason has been the time issue. There are two months in the year where my schedule is more than filled: June and December. Both adorable months and usually the happenings are nice too but there are just too many sweet things to go. Anyhow. My aim is not to complain here. What I really wanted to say is that I have had a great month. I have enjoyed walking the beautifully decorated streets of Vienna after so many years in Asia. I have enjoyed the first snow and the sparkles in the kids eyes when they wake up in the morning and have so much joy by only seeing snowflakes. I have enjoyed baking with them gingerbread-cookies while listening to Christmas songs. I have enjoyed the Christmas markets in Vienna, the "Punsch" with friends, laughter and talk. I have enjoyed the visit of a dear friend that I once met in Dhaka who came all the way from Norway to see me. I have enjoyed some good music. I have enjoyed a simple cup of tea at home just by myself. I hope you have had some quite nice moments this December too?!

Ok, ok...I have been looking around in some other blogs as well...just for some fun ideas...Like these pictures show:

Was looking for a hotel...

Japanese Wood Design

It´s a cold & rainy Saturday afternoon over here in Vienna. The perfect time to slurp tea from a huge cup and surf around blogs and get inspired by beautiful things. Like this:

Little Gifts

Often it´s those unexpected, little reminders of great friends that come by mail when you don´t expect anything. Those little things brighten up my day and now when I use my owl-pen at university, I am daily reminded of the gift of a friend. Sometimes you meet people in places you don´t expect to make any deep connections. Then it happens anyway, you get the possibility to walk together a part of your life-journey together with a person that becomes important. All I can do, is to be thankful for the many possibilities in my life that I met somebody that I connected with and do my part to keep those connections for a lifetime.

Souffle Forms

A while ago I got a lovely gift-card from my brother in law and his wife to one of my favourite shops in Vienna. For the longest time I didn´t manage to go there, but when I finally made my way through town, I found something that I have wanted to have for quite some time: Souffle-forms. Now I just need some fabulous recepies. Any suggestions welcome! (In addition I got a funny mug and a great postcard...)

Glimpse in to our China Cabinet

Every time I walk past our china cabinet that I brought here all the way from Dhaka, it puts a smile on my face...Just love the Wik&Walsoe mugs, found in the small china-stalls in Dhaka, also the white serving bowls are from the street markets of Dhaka...but most of all it´s those Swedish Horses that my mother gave me. She got them from my Grandmother...and maybe one day I´ll pass them on to my own kids...

Something Knitted...

How do you like these knitted interiors?? I don´t know if I would take the lamp or the chair (a little bit too much for my taste), but a little bit here and there looks like a fun change...
