Take time to sit still

Its such a busy time of year with chaotic shopping for the perfect gift..but why not give a gift to yourself and sit still for a moment. I am currently reading this book and it talks about coffee, candles, blankets, comfy clothes..its a very lighthearted book and I think you cant cure all the worlds ills by these things and I know Denmark has problems like all other countries but it is nice to appreciate the joys of life and slowing down a little. The painting collaborates with a poem The Vanguard of an Age..to read it click here.

My son helped me make this Christmas garland for our front door using a tangerine crate lid, glue gun, twigs and pine cones.  We have added some lights to it and they look lovely hanging on the front door.

happy paint party friday

  1. It’s nice to sit still and contemplate life, it makes you appreciate what you have :-). It looks like you’ve been very productive with your time too, your drawing is lovely and the Christmas decorations you made are lovely – I love the rustic look and feel, very beautiful! Wishing you a Happy Friday and Weekend! J 🙂

  2. HYGGE is a popular word also here in Finland. This is just the right time to enjoy all the lovely things of it.
    The door hanging is beautiful.
    Happy PPF and weekend ❤❤

  3. lovely painting and that hand made wreath looks like a perfect example of Hygge. I’m going to see if I can get it at our library-sounds like a wonderful read. Happy PPF!
