Back to January

How I hate to take down the Christmas decorations. Each January it is tough to say goodbye to the green, silver, and red.

My sweet reindeer, resting comfortably once more in their basket in the attic. The tree lights are dimmed and my little evergreen is outside in the cold.

Two weeks of warmth, joy, and freedom rushed by. Monday it is back to normal. Back to work.

But I’ll keep on lighting candles throughout the year! And I put my two friends on the left on top of my bookcase. They’re inseparable! And too cute to be stuffed away.

Welcome to January. 😀

Cozy Corner

It arrived. IT ARRIVED! *dances around* My signed print of Cozy Night by Kim Parkhurst arrived by postman today. And he even rang twice, because I was at work. Fortunately I have a very nice postman. Plus very nice neighbors! 🙂

I saw this print on Pinterest two weeks ago, and exclaimed: ‘Hey, that’s Boris!’, followed a second later by ‘And Smokey!’, and after a moment I added in an even higher voice ‘Oooow and that’s me! Except for the gorgeous hair of course’. 😉 It was called Cozy Night. I grinned and closed Pinterest.

After five minutes I was still smiling about the picture and I couldn’t put it out of my head. After ten minutes I got very restless and opened the app again on my tablet, hoping to find it again. And I did. Five minutes later -click click click- I found myself on Etsy. And within another few minutes, I had bought myself a signed print. Lalalaaaaa.

Today a small note told me that there was something waiting for me next door. Could it be…? I rushed over and rang the bell. A white envelope with a smiling cat and a Dutch text found its way into my hands. The sender was from the United States. Oh yes baby, come to mama!

I’ll let the photos do their own talking:

 

 
Do you like my cozy corner?

I know, I know… but I just can’t help myself. It’s a good cry though. 😉

Have an extreme Saturday.
