An another snowman-story

I have visited quite a few blogs recently, where the homes are looking so wonderfully festive already! There are beautiful lights and textiles, and the most treasured figurines have been taken out to display. I am running a bit *sigh* late this year, and have just managed to get out my favorite snowmen. The first ones greet you at the door...



And of course my bag has some too...




And the latest addition just arrived today! I have been wanting this Arabia Snowman-figure for a year already, and I spotted it today while shopping, and it was a bargain too. This beauty being on sale just before Christmas doesn't make sense (alright, it's the season 2010 product aka so last year) - I love it!



We're (me&sis) jumping into a train to travel to Helsinki in a few hours! It's the sisters tour vol.2 and we will be enjoying the festive atmosphere there until Sunday, yippee! I will take my trusty Canon with me and will share the views with you later. Now I must be off to pack, I'll leave you to enjoy this (gives me the goosebumps every time) and wish you a wonderful weekend!

Happy December 9th!

Yours,
Mia

P.S. Giveaway here until December 15th! Welcome!

My dear Mia that was wonderful to see your snowmen and your new figure is a real sweetie; I would have bought him too. Have a fab time with your dear sis, buy lots and come back with smiling faces and happy hearts. How exciting! And yes walking in the air still gives me goosebumps too...!
See you soon!

I love your new snowman figurine Mia! :) 'Walking in the Air' is lovely but I hate it when the snowman melts .
I hope you and your sister have a wonderful time in Helsinki, I'm looking forward to seeing the photos. :)

Thank you so much, Robin! I loved every picture from your festive home, and had a moment of despair on Friday when I was supposed to be packing but all I wanted to do was to put up the Christmas decoration :) But we had lovely weekend, and I still have two weeks until...

Lovely new week soon!

Yours,
Mia

Hi Vivienne,

Happy and crafty week!

This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
