We are preparing - making little nice things for the tree, baking and talking a lot about the Christmas tree.
Our plan was to go outside Copenhagen to find the tree but it was impossible to start the car in the cold.
Instead we found one nearby - A had to carry it home.

A's grandmother made the embroidered family tree for him ages ago. It's in Frida Viola's room now - together with the wallpaper we found at a fleamarket in Sweden.
A says it looks like an old lady's livingroom.
What do you think?
(By the way: A's grandmother's name was also Frida Viola - I like the idea of some of her stuff in little Frida Viola's room)

Finally I am not ill any longer.
This is what happened during weekend:
Visit from wonderful friends + lot's of fine little christmas projects + the snow suddenly dissapeared
Picture #1: My mom made the delicious pickles and jam: plum and raspberries/currant
Picture #2: I haven't made these cookies since I was 12 - now I tried again and they taste so good with lot's of ginger, cinnamon and cardamom
Picture #3: I bought the book about fantastic caravans in France. Maybe a springtime project as an appendix to our farmhouse in Sweden...?
More about the book My Cool Caravan and lots of super fine caravans here.

We are sick all three of us.
And this weekend was the annual "juleklippeweekend" (don't know what this is called in English - but the weekend where we make lots of fine christmas stuff in paper!). I didn't have much energy but I did finish the angel with the white and blue harlequin dress.
My dad made the white angel lots of years ago when he was a boy. He made such fine things with his hands.
I really love this angel!
The light has been so beautiful today.
I have not been outside the house for three days now.
