You would think that once you lived in Finland, in a country with notoriously long and cold and snowy winters, there should be no problem shooting some lovely pictures from winter-ish items in mid-November. Yeah right. There is about ten minutes (well I might exaggerating a little here but not much more, I promise) of light-ish time during the day, and as there is no snow to lighten the scenery up... You got the picture and pretty it ain't. So what does one do?
She tries to fake it, naturally. And with no success, I must say. If it wasn't the not-so-natural looking star lights on those twigs that gave it away, the big bottle on top of the dresser just might.
Is the situation outside really that bad, you ask, maybe it is just a bit gloomy or...
No, bad it is.
But please do not blame the little snowmen, they did everything they could to look as cheerful as possible, even with the fake spruce I wrapped on the terrace fence.
Oh my. But once I realized the snowflakes and glimmering rays of sunshine just were not there today, it all got better. And little snowmen posed little real pros, and a picture after picture was taken. They all are in my shop here, just in case you would need a cheery little snowman to enlighten to your days. And now that I looked those twig-in-a-bottle images the little guys look so cheerful, that I am rolling some white wool here again to make some to stay with us too!
Cheerful Monday, everyone!
