First week

The first week of January is almost over, and holiday-things are little by little getting back to their boxes for next year. It's still pretty dark here in the evenings, so candles are a must. I rummaged my candle holder stash (well it's nothing compared to my fabric or wool stash but there are a few), and I found this beauty, which I am pretty sure I haven't showed you earlier:


That picture really doesn't do this cutie justice, it has happy foxes and beautiful leaves on it, and when there's a candle inside and the day gets darker, it reflects beautiful foxes and leaves all around the room...


...and those foxes inspired me today, and the first fox-bag for this year was born:

 

It moved into my shop with some little tweets I have made this week. Oh my, it's been a great first week for this year, and now it's time to wish you a

Happy first weekend of 2013 soon!

Yours,
Mia

Hello Vivienne,

Have a great weekend!

Hei Nova!

Kiitokset! Lanko-mieheni osti tuon kettu-lyhdyn tuliaiseksi minulle (siis mies ihan omineen :) vitsit!), ja se on ihana! Ketut on ihan parhautta :)

Mukavaa viikonloppua!

Hello Anne,

The candle holder came with a larger candle in a glass jar, and it had a divine scent but I have burnt it all :) Now i use it with a tealight, but it needs "a real" one with real fire to get the little foxes and leaves dancing all around the room...pretty!

Have a great weekend, we'll talk soon again!

Yours,
Mia
