Happy yuletide...

Wishing you all a very happy yuletide!!!



This is the last gift for Susanne in our calender swap. Though it´s the end of moving around for a while for Susanne, the suitcase is symbolic for the fact that Susanne and I are packing our suitcases and going to our first mini-fair in april. I´m looking so much forward to it, and really enjoy thinking that this next winter months sparetime will be spend making items for sale at the fair.

Welcome home...



No minis for Susanne today...instead I want to give her a welcome sign. Symbolic for the fact that Susanne and her husband are "driving home for christmas" after a long period away. Will love to see the sign at your door when I get to visit next time ;0) The angel zinc sign is also included in todays gift. Hope you like it Sus...

Lunar eclipse and winther solstice...


Tonight 00.38 it´s winther solstice. Last night was the coldest night this year in Denmark, today is freezing cold too. Tomorrow is the shortest day of this year. The moon is full and right in this moment the lunar eclipse is visible. Indeed it´s a magical day...
Unfortunately this picture isn´t the current lunar eclipse.

1:1 Gift and decorations...

Todays advent calender gift for Susanne is two small french living inspired items for home decorating. Hope you can use it... :0)

I was inspired to show you some of my 1:1 christmas or Jule-decorations. As some of you know I´m pagan and that´s the reason why I use the term Yule or Jul instead of Christmas. You won´t find any angels or santas in my home. My decorating style is simple, country and almost without any red...

My paper hearts are decorated with sunwheels and Thor´s hammer...

I have bell jars with cones or trims and laces. The tiny porcelain pixie is my mums work. I adore him and he´s around all year. He is a danish vætte, a kind of pixie that takes care of the property and people, but only if we treat him good.

The lanterns for tealights are made of jars, wire, bakingpaper and fern leaves....

I love a lot of candles to light up the corners of the house, and especially at this time of the year I think of them as a celebration of the sun to return.

A tradition in our home is the bear pixie choir. The books are some old lexicons and the complete collection is exactly 24 books. When my children were younger they loved to get up in the morning and move the choir one book each day, to visualize how many days left for christmas.

I have some old cones that I found in a basket in the shed when we moved in. I like to think that they have been used to decorate for christmas many years ago. Our house is an old train station from 1898. The clog in front was found on the attic. We like to believe that it´s and old clog from a pixie that arrived with the first train long time ago and now live here. Hope he´s got new clogs and of course two of them...

I like to use olive branches to decorate, simple and cute....

A couple of pixies in a cabinet... They look like they´ve been playing some pranks :0)

Calender gift...


On the 8th day of christmas...
Tutorial:
Go to the woods, find a shady spot with a carpet of moss. Pick some moss and carry it home. Mix the moss in a blender with some sour cream or youghurt natural. Paint the substance on to some plaster or concrete balls. Place the balls in a shady and humid place in your garden for several years... Have fun ;0)

No mini-ing...

I haven't done any mini-ing today. It was my intention but instead I did some gardenwork that has to be done before the winter sets in. We have recently cut down two old thujas and I love to use it for decorations. So I made a bit of christmasdecorating indoor. A bit early maybe but alas... christmas will soon be over us... Take a look here

Venetian masqurade...




Finally I've had some pictures taken of the venetian masks I've had on my worktable for a while. They will be added to my Gypsy Boudoir shop tomorrow.
Very soon I will try to leave the warm masqurade feeling away, jump on my bike and struggle through the windy rain to work. Have a nice day, weekend is soon to come :0)
