After just having moved into our own house, I cannot wait to get started with decorating for halloween. Maybe we’ll even have some trick or treaters here…. I better have some candy ready. Anyway, while browsing some ideas for our annual pumpkin carving session, I came across this amazing pumpkin carving “how to” over at real simple. I am no doubt going to try some of their suggestions – especially cutting a hole out at the back and not around the stem which causes the pumpkin to weaken and makes it degrade a lot quicker.
Pumpking carving …here I come!
Who knew flowers can make someone smile all day long.
Having just returned from vacation and still fighting with my jetlag, I went on to buy my usual breakfast before going to work. For some reason I always seem to ‘stop and smell the flowers’ but never end up buying them. This day was different….
Already being on a flower trip from my own wedding planning and having attended a friends wedding with some the most amazing flower arrangements I decided to ‘stop and BUY the flowers’. Three beautiful bundles of peonies – nothing else feels more like spring than the smell of fresh flowers.
‘Tis the season to start baking Christmas cookies, snuggling up at home with a good movie while the snow is falling outside, and most of all making an advent wreath.
Ever since I moved to Switzerland, I have taken it upon myself to make a ‘home made’ advent wreath. Since we always spend Christmas with our families we aren’t too big on putting up any other Christmas decorations, but an Advent wreath is a definite must.
Every year I get inspired by meandering through the different decorating stores with their thousands of christmas decor pieces. I get inspired by the colors in our house and by my daily walks through the forest with Pixie (our puppy lab).
