New Year's hobbies

Kuva
Yes, I do go out time to time and enjoy some fresh winter air, but I so much enjoy this quiet atmosphere when I let myself use all the time I want with these ancient hobbies of mine. Reading historic stories and fiction, the thicker the book is the better and that feeling, when you are starting a new knitting project - oh, the wooly scent, the soft feeling of a yarn and those colors. My favorite moments.

I wish You a Happy Year 2018!

Toki, ulkoilen, kyllä, kyllä, mutta niin nautin näistä hiljaisista hetkistä, jolloin voin sukeltaa tarinoiden ja käsitöiden maailmaan. En kyennyt pitämään sormiani erossa langoista - lipsahti hieman työn puolelle, lomailu. Vaan neuloessani kynttilän valossa, ei se niin kovin työltä maistu :)

Ihanaa tarinarikasta vuotta 2018!



Christmas peace

"Tomorrow, God willing..."

With these words begins Christmas Peace Declaration at noon on Christmas eve in Turku, Finland. This declaration has been red since the 13th century. It's a Christmas tradition and we, who don't live in Turku watch the ceremony on TV and at that point the peaceful time of Christmas really begins.

For the moment I don't have anything on my needles. Everything is ready so the Christmas can step in and put her feet up and enjoy this happy, warm and peaceful time. I, myself, am waiting for those lovely book presents that I know there will be. Some knitting book sweets too :)

I wish You a Peaceful Christmas and a Happy New Year 2018!

"Huomenna, jos Jumala suo..."

Joulurauha on laskeutunut jo meidän kattomme alle. Hän on nostanut jalkansa ylös ja nauttii lämmöstä, tuoksuista ja iloisesta rupattelusta. Olen katsellut lankoja sillä silmällä muuta touhutessani. Jouluisen lukumaratonini jälkeen tartun jälleen puikkoihin - uusin ideoin…

Wanhan Holviston Joulu - Christmas market at Hamina Bastion

Kuva
It always, year after year, fills my heart with warmth to go to Hamina at this time of the year. Christmas market at Hamina Bastion is something more than just a market: self made items, something sweet or salty to taste, a cafe with their goodies, pets to hug, ponies to ride, open fire with lovely smoky warm feeling, Ice Queen and elves and of course Santa Claus. Two days of pure joy for kids with their parents and grandparents. Town of Hamina is always worth visiting and especially this weekend. See you tomorrow!

Vuosi toisensa jälkeen on ihana palata Haminaan Wanhan Holviston Jouluun. Käsin kosketeltava, iloinen ja lämmin tunnelma lämmittävät sydäntä pitkälle kevääseen ja silloinhan voi aloittaa jo haaveilun tulevasta joulusta bastionin kaarien suojassa. Kiitos Teille - ihanille asiakkailleni <3 Tapaamisiin jälleen huomenna!  





100'th anniversary

Finnish nature shines in many shades of blue and white as Finland's flag. 100 years of independence and I wish many more! The sun decided to celebrate with us today <3



Christmassy weekend

Strömfors iron mill area or village is like a dear old friend who you love to meet year after year. It was so nice to return there, under old ceiling beams, and feel that atmosphere - snowflakes, happy faces, red ochre houses and the scent of burning candles. I hope you will be able to visit there next year!
