Happy Halloween

Happy Halloween dear friends! We do not celebrate it here that much, but starting with it made a great disguise for the fact that it is the very last day of October, and my blogging has not been too plentiful lately *ahem* but let's keep camouflaging that with these happy things I have been creating during this month:

It has been quite busy around here lately, but I have found time to make a few mushrooms here, some little balls and birdies there...

... And I simply have not been worrying that I usually have the C-stockings ready by now. This year seems to be a bit different, but hey, as long as my creations are cheery and make me you smile we are all good. So some happy autumn-wreaths here we go:

There are happy birds, autumn flowers and leaves to put up outside or to your window...

...and some happy toadstools for your front door or to cheer up the cabinets inside...

...and the most autumnal of the all birdie-wreath with some happy acorns and a big leaf

All in my shop now. With these I wish you the most wonderful weekend, and ...

...Happy November soon!



Dreaming of the Riviera

"Snorkmaiden, what are you doing?"

"Oh, just trying on these beautiful pearls I got on Riviera, do you still remember our trip?"

"Sure. I think that lovely lady Tove made a scrap-book* or something from our travels... Here it is!"

"We had fantastic time, do you remember that bikini you bought, and there are those pearls too... What? Mamma, did you say something?"

"Oh yes, dear! There is a moving coming out soon of our time on Riviera. Sniff saw the ad on someone's instagram while searching this autumn's latest bling-trends, and I just read about in this newspaper too!"

"A movie? Whaaat? Our travels? Starring us? Snorkmaiden, did you hear that? Snorkmaiden...?!"

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...
