It's christmas time, Autumn is over

 It is christmas time. Autumn is over and my christmas decorations are up!
Today I took a decision. I have decided that I will start to learn to play cello. This is because I have been wanting to learn my favorite instrument, cello, for years now... And now I finally have the time an money to it, yay.

I love to write my own music and lyrics and I decided to do some more about it. I'm gonna record it and put it up on bandcamp. For that, I need a name. I don't just want to use my own name. I will brainstorm on that name, hehe.

Autumn colours

The first snow has arrived, where I live. Not much, but it still looks beautiful and makes me hope for more. It lightens up the world outside. Autumn feels like it's already over, but at least I collected a few leaves in beautiful colours, to remind me of Autumn. I pressed them in this old book with renaissance portraits. The last couple of days I have been listening to the wonderful album 'A midwinter's night dream' with Loreena McKennitt. It really makes me in the mood for winter and christmas.

November: The last month of Autumn

We are in the last month of Autumn, but it's beginning to look more like winter here. The leaves has left the trees and the cold has arrived with a bit of snow. I'm mostly staying inside with good music, candles and warm drinks.

Trip to Jutland

Last week I went for a small vacation with my lovely family and my love. We went to Jutland here in Denmark and visited Vesterhavet. I love being on the beach in Autumn, Winter and Spring. We visited a beautiful place called Rubjerg Knude Fyr, which is an old lighttower from around 1900 that'll soon fall in the water.

Put on your dresses of red and gold; Summer is gone, and the days grow cold

The sight of candlelighst makes me feel both relaxed and warm. I love to watch the small flames move... sometimes they move slow, sometimes fast.
Fire have my full respect, but when I watch those small flames, they seem so fragile. You can even blow them out with one, single breath.
Burning beautiful candles in different colours, sizes and types, is a thing I do more often now when it is Autumn. My favorite season...

Lots of lavender

Lavender's scent should have a calming effect... and my love keeps telling me that the colour purple is good for people with depression. We have a lot of lavender outside our windows and I dried a few before they withered.

I don't feel good these days. But at least I try to make my surroundings cosy and I enjoy looking at all of my treasures here in the livingroom. I also made a chocolate care with lavender earlier this week and it was so good. It's about indulging oneself, when feeling bad.
Because of my current state I haven't been creative with my outfits... but I tried on some pieces, I have thrifted, together and I feel a bit like a witchy creature who lives in the forest, with my tousled hair and layered clothing.

Today I'd like to sit and sip, forget about the world a bit

"... Ignore the things I have to do, and just enjoy a cup or two."

Yesterday it was my turn to host a teaparty. My friends arrived to my home, dressed in beautiful garments and carrying some delicious cupcakes and buns. I really enjoyed it. A few days before I had baked lavender biscuits and bought a lot of new tea, yummy! The table was decorated with crystals, candles and my favourite teaset.

Handmade by Celine Haakon

I got some jewelry for free from Handmade by Celine Haakon and this is my review on the things I got.
I really like the details on the jewelry and how she sometimes mix colours on the metal. My favourites are the matching set with the earrings and the choker! I really like the way it looks.
The only minus is that two of the jewelry had broken a bit because of the glue. But I have said it to Celine so she can do something about it. But after all I like her style and I find it very inspiring that she makes these pretty things to wear.
Go check out her shop on Etsy here.

The ring on this picture is very nive with it's tiny clockworks. I don't usually mix different colours of metals, but I think it goes well on this ring here.

Where there's tea, there's hope

It is the second time we held a teaparty, my friends and I, and definitely not the last! We had a great time with lots of treats (again) and this time, homemade ice tea. We also went for a beautiful walk in one of the parks here in Odense.

It's always teatime somewhere in the world

Finally! The first teaparty with my friend Sarafina and two new lovely friends, I didn't knew until now.  We drank six different kinds of tea and everyone had made their own, delicious treat to share. I made some delicious blueberry muffins with lavender. It was a succes and I feel so happy!
