Hello and good morning! It’s been a few days since my last post, mainly because my days have been so busy! But I thought I’d take a minute to show you some sweet little treasures I got to help cool down this hot summer, and a pretty little ear warmer that I just finished— in anticipation of cooler days in the (distant…) future!
I was so thrilled to get a little package of Swedish Christmas treasures from Lycke at Till-Vidas-Ara who lives in northern Sweden where they are enjoying a summer of midnight sun at the moment! She sent me the most adorable sheets of vintage wrapping paper, one illustrated by Swedish artist Jenny Nystrom, and some little gift note cards with adorable snow scenes and tomtes and Swedish Christmas greetings on them. I think they will definitely inspire my Swedish Christmas fascination and put me in the ‘god jul’ spirit as I paint holiday scenes! *Thank you, Lycke!*
I also finished that cable knit ear warmer the other day and I think it turned out really cute! I used a very soft white yarn that a friend gave me back in September that I was saving to use ‘for something special.’ I think it will serve me well once the weather turns chilly! And I’m proud to have conquered a cable knit!
I also got my hair cut even shorter a couple of weeks ago— it’s about shoulder length now in a long bob and I like it! Much easier to manage…I have a ton of hair and it can get a bit overwhelming to try to control. My shorter locks have also inspired me to try new hair styles, and I think it’ll look nice with some knit wear hats and warmers like this. Come on, October!!!
Well, hope you enjoyed a little ‘God Jul’ in July! I feel cooler already, don’t you?
have a good day, and chat with you later!~
