wishing you . . .

Just finished wrapping all the present. Phew... 
(Gave myself a mental medal for good wrapping job and conditioned my innver 'wrapping fetish' not to care when the receiving end doesn't look twice and it all falls crumbled on the floor in seconds.)
My wardrobe looks so busy, so festive... so full of little (and not so little) wrapped up packages. Can't wait to see the kid's faces:).
Wishing you all - Happy Holidays! with this cheerful snowy pattern:)

Joyous Bloom . . .

The pattern spirits moved me into the direction of this blooming repeat:). Hope that it provided a much needed relief from all the white and grey.

swans and bears . . .

Nothing says 'Christmas' like bears, swans and florals... that's why I'm wrapping my presents in lagom this year:). It's not just my opinion. Ask the Moomins... they'll tell you - "Swans and Bears all the way!".

making it . . .

Autumn. Many people love it. Much has been written about it's beautiful sadness... but, I'm not enchanted by it. I just want the green back. That's why I have to work on making every day a good day. Maybe you need some green back too:)

hallow's kids . . .

October has been jam-packed with work and lack of sleep... and I'm not sad to see it come to an end... especially because it's going to be such a colourful, scary and fun end:)! Halloween  is promising to be very interesting.
My girls are dressing up as characters from 'the Golden Compass'. Margo is going to be Lyra, Anais - her daemon and Lola is still on the fence.
