Porcelain trains and candy canes

Swedish Christmas time apparently begins at the end of November, and seems to fade away around middle january. And, in fact, a couple days ago the giant Christmas trees in our garden were finally removed.

So, these pics are just meant for me to fight back Christmas nostalgia. : )
With a cup of warm tea in my hands, and the snow silently falling outside, I really feel like I could afford the whole holiday season once again. : )

Thank you for the heart-warming feedback to my last post! I was - as usual - a bit scared to share such personal information on a blog, and it was a big, big joy for me to read all of your nice and encouraging comments. Thank you so much! : )

PS: sorry about the little blackout. December was both thrilling and exhausting, and after publishing 27 posts within a month I needed a little break from blogging. And now it's sooooo nice to be back! : )


  1. Nice to see you again here in blog land, I've missed you. You were also very diligent to write many post in December, so I can understand you were tired.
    Cosy scenes you have made.

  7. Hi, I believe your site may be having internet browser compatibility issues.
    When I take a look at your website in Safari, it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it's got some overlapping issues. I merely wanted to give you a quick heads up! Apart from that, great site!
