I'm only 21. not seriously thinking of having children now (only secretly dreaming of swelling bellies) but that doesn't stop me from assembling a collection babyclothes. I always think: this will not exist in ten years. so get it now.

and I really wanted to show you the artwork of micah blue smaldone's cd (who I blogged about on friday) it's precious. 



working on a book of all the images occuring in my mind. so far: 
.waiting women in a cornfield
.sleeping beauty's
.swans losing all their feathers
.a big seal telling me 'je ne suis pas sauvage'

s n o w

finally it snowed. now it's winter for sure.. dressed myself in icy colours today, it was by accident. guess I get inspired by the freezing cold (-5°).

some good things about this kind of weather: 
1. woolen socks 
2. the city is so quiet, the snow covers all the noises
3. a coffee when out in town (in the best coffeebar ever) 
4. giggle at all the people who stumble when crossing the icy street
5. listen to this wonderful man and look at this
6. surprise a friend with a ... SNOWFIGHT!

If I see a box somewhere, I always want to know what’s in it. And sometimes it’s something special, like this.
King Winter (the one from Elsa Beskow's book "Olles skidtur") has arrived here and he brings us beautiful sunny and cold days.
Sunday 13 December it was Lucia day, something I didn’t know until I first came to Sweden.
This film was recorded in Mora, Dalarna.
More about Lucia?
Take a look at the nice post by Camilla Engman at Stephanie Levy's blog

This Little Red Riding Hood girl with snowballs in her hands was laying between the many old postcards; it was love at first sight.

It’s been raining for days here in Belgium now, making me really homesick for Sweden and the snow that lightens up the dark winterdays.
Music from Ane Brun " My Lover Will Go" .
Lotta, I took down your old doll house from the attic and played around a bit, hope you don't mind?
