Around the house





There is nothing quite like a wood burning masonry stove.  It is always cosy sitting in this spot :)



Detail of one of my Mom's paintings. You can see more of her work here.



This wooden miniature interior has been on my parents' kitchen wall so long it took me a while to even notice it. Funny how we forget about familiar things :) 



I was wearing these boots every day while I was in Austria but I think this is the only decent close up of them :) I've been meaning to check the label all that time and can finally say: They're Legero Gore-tex boots. Warm, dry and comfy. :)







All of these shots were taken in Austria by the way. I repeat: This is not the shoe box :D Just in case you were wondering :)

Midweek you guys. I am keeping my fingers crossed for a sunny weekend. What do you mean, unreasonable expectations for the end of January?! :D

Sweater: Present years ago

  7. I too have seen all the Little House on the Prairie episodes many times too. I was raised on them! It is so interesting to find out how little they got right in the show now that I read the books and how much they took from the books for inspirations of episodes too. I think only 3 or 4 of the episodes were based off of these books so far. haha. It is one of my favorite series ever though to watch.

  13. Lovely photos! So charming, and those boots are great. I haven't had a decent pair of boots this winter, and my feet are unhappy with me. Goretex sounds like the best plan.

  14. Officially the coolest house ever! I miss that uniqueness so much about Europe. Everything is so cookie cutter here!
