A big cliché, but I can't believe it's december already, feels like the year just started. Where did those first eleven months go? So far, my struggle with winter (I know, technically winter hasn't even begun) isn't that unmanageable this year. Normally, I get really bummed out by the cold and shorter days, but so far it's not that bad. We haven't had any snow at all and not much rain, let's hope it stays that way! I wouldn't mind a white Christmas, it's the slush-part that follows after the snow-part that go along with it that I dislike. In just a couple of weeks the shortest day will be behind us, and we will slowly be going towards my favourite season: spring. That time of year when you can leave scarf, gloves and hat at home again, without any bodyparts freezing off. Having the knowledge that you have a whole summer ahead! Going out for icecream, wearing ballet-flats, sipping on cold drinks, evenings of reading books out on the balcony, after dinner walks, and buying red fruits at the farmers markt. Oh my, I think I am getting ahead of things. Lets rewind, get back to december, and tackle winter first. Here are the things I liked this week.
This beautiful balcony
Saturday drinks, I love the pretty illustrations on the labels
What's a week without a new good looking door!
Happy to see something green on a grey day
Happy enveloppes make my mailbox very happy
Something else making me happy, my new wintercoat, with many thanks to granny
How has your week been? Are you team winter, or team summer? I hope your weekend is fantastic so far, enjoy the rest of it! Cheers and hope to see you next week.
The last week it's been 0°C - thankfully no snow, but freezing nonetheless. Ugh.
How nice that you received a rainproof coat from your granny :) That balcony is so very beautiful! Happy Saint Nikolas Day :)
I usually like winter, but not for a couple of years now, so team summer....sigh....it's cold here although no snow lately:PReplyDelete
I love that balcony btw.:D
Happy envelopes. I could do with some of them...instead of all the bills :)ReplyDelete
Oh, I feel like we here in Florida under the big privilege :) still walking outside in shirts and t-shirt :) But sometimes I think to just get a plane ticket and fly to see snow... well those thoughts usually last for a minute! I think you will be very comfortable and warm in the new coat - grandma is the best!!!!ReplyDelete
Lovely post. Way to make the most of the week. That envelope is something else! I do love the colder months, that is one thing I know for sure. Not sure why but I start to almost panic at the end of August. And if the heat continues into September...well...Mr. Hausfrau has had enough of me and my wailing by then! Red fruits at the farmers market are a huge plus though, that's for sure...ReplyDelete
Happy envelopes are great.ReplyDelete
Winter isn't my favorite time of year. We have mild winters, not much snow but lots of rain. I absolutely love autumn with all the color on the trees.ReplyDelete
One of the cutest envelopes and stamp I've ever seen. As for me, most of mail are credit card bills, insurance and the like Haha Nothing really good to look forward.ReplyDelete
You never ran out of door posts and I wish I could do the same here. Aside from doors, yes I have fascination with balconies too.
oh, girl - team summer, all the way! I am happiest at the beach!ReplyDelete
Those wine labels are really cute!
Oooh! I'd love to see a full pic of your new winter coat! =0)ReplyDelete
Such a positive attitude, Mariken! And, yes, I'm relieved, too, that the shortest day will be behind us soon. I don't hate winter as much as you do but I get really tired of the darkness!ReplyDelete
I'm actually Team Fall. Hahaha. Winter gets so cold here (though I do like snow) and the summers are very hot and humid. Give me the crisp air of fall any day!ReplyDelete
Last week was a busy one for me. And I totally agree with you on the winter and cold. If it wasn't for Christmas, I would just hibernate from October till May.ReplyDelete
Great photos. I love the balcony! We haven't had much winter weather yet either, but like you I am dreading it. My man and I will be relocating to the south within the next 4 years where his family is. Palm trees and no snow are something to look forward to!ReplyDelete
Team Spring and Fall.. i like the in between weathersReplyDelete
I love happy envelopes too! Sounds like a nice week. I also like fun labels and have been known to buy a bottle of wine because of the label.ReplyDelete
looks like a comfy coat. We really need one here. In NZ the summer hasn't begun yet. Lots of rain and cold wind Maybe next year. Bock beer is dark beerReplyDelete
isn't it. Love that door
