The very last days of the year. 
I hope you feel ready for a fresh start!

Wishing you all a wonderful Christmas!

*sweet preparations






It's not the taste, it is the smell, the feeling it creates when baking in the right mood happens without time pressure and expectations. It's never the same in the other seasons, it's only at Christmas... :)

*in between






In between the snow days we had some misty, wet days where everything was bathed in the most wonderful green tones. The lichens on the branches were glowing and nature was soaking up gratefully the rain after that exceptional dry year.

*the snow






I could not imagine a world without ice and snow.
Although it's so inhospitable for a human to live in the cold,
it's same time amazingly refreshing for all senses.

*frosty tones | part 2






It just started to snow in this very moment. 
Huge snowflakes hovering slowly to the ground.
I made gingerbread which left the sweetest smell in the home
 and today I want to make one of my favorite sort of chocolate cookies.
Have you started baking Christmas cookies yet? Which are your favorites?

*Forst + First Snow


{Music: Satellite of Love – Milla Jovovich}

A little throwback to some frosty November moments and our first snow!

*frosty tones | part 1






 Colourwise this is my favorite time of the year, 
especially when the first morning frosts have set in.
All is glittery and still.
What a magical time!
Have a nice second Advent weekend!

*bonnet





Dear Sasja, whom I got to know over Instagram made me this lovely dusty pink bonnet. I truly love it! It's so soft and comfortable to wear! Go, check out her instagram site here + here! She makes beautiful stuff and is such a kind person!

*of winter fruits and nests full of rose hips






Do you know medlars? They ripen after the first frosts and taste very unique and for people who try them first-time they might need a little to get used to the taste, but I really like them and think of having my own tree in the garden sometime.
On one of my walks I spotted a bird nest which was filled to the top with rose hips. It was hard to get a decent picture, because the nest was surrounded by thorny branches, but I really had to take one. The thought of the bird collecting all those rose hips to stuff his nest amused me somehow :)
Have a lovely first Advent weekend!

*the last leaves and a soft mouth






Arms of strong trees invite for a rest,
when the last leaf is squinting in the sun,
holding on to the year
that is fading away.

A soft mouth, 
tender as it can be,
speaks of trust
in a world full of pain.

*November moments


{Music: New Slang – The Shins}

Once again I captured some moments of the month in a little movie for you. It was so far the wettest month of the year with the least sunshine. I can't believe that in less than one month it's already Christmas! It's crazy how time flies!

*big trees and a blue cage






Once in the while we are visiting the wild park area (about half an hour car ride away from our home, so not very far). I love that place, because there are still very big, old trees, each so unique and soulful. There is this sky-blue cage thing in the middle of the meadow that looks so surreal somehow.
I want to see this place when all is full of snow, maybe we mange this winter!
Wishing you a cozy weekend!
