Motoristin Mutsi at home and garden -

 My Christmas time isn't Christmas time without flowers. I love the smell of cinnamon, clove and ginger, but I am able to live without them. But flowers - specially hyacinth - that is a total must. No matter how much I am sneezing,  when they are in bloom. I use to buy first ones as soon as they arrive to stores and there have been Christmases, when those have been the only flowers in the house. However, last week I bought three cypresses - and three hyacints. Just for the start... There...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE No panic... but from today forwards my days, and most likely yours too, if you have taken upon the Christmas preparations in good and in bad, are going to be very busy. I will do my best to stay in good spirits and not to exhaust myself. One thing at a time, with an audiobook in the ears and some carols in between, all should be fine. After all, when I look around, there is plenty to see and enjoy... the candles, the decorations, the tree... ...

I've received some beautiful stitched Christmas cards from my mum, Eija H. and Soile H. My mum stitched the beautiful red card above, Eija stitched the colourful Star card (so many stitches!) and Soile stitched the  lovely red heart card. Thank you so much for these! I also received a wonderful...

One day I started to read one himmeli book that I have. Soon found out I was already making a himmeli using black straws. Selailin tässä yksi päivä yhtä himmelikirjaa, joka minulla on. Pian huomasin jo tekeväni himmelia mustista pilleistä. And this is how it looks. I am quite pleased with it even though I have not much experience making these. Have you ever made himmelis? And if what materials you have used making them? -- Ja tällainen siitä tuli. Olen ihan tyytyväinen lopputulokseen...

Someone had shared her idea in Facebook how to make decor for candelabras. So of course I had to try it out myself. I had an old necklace made with wooden beads and I decided to use one chain from it. -- Joku oli jakanut Facebookissa kivan idean kynttelikön koristeluun. Joten sitä piti sitten itsekin lähteä kokeilemaan. Minulla oli vanhat puuhelmet, joista jouti yksi ketjullinen helmiä kokeiluun. Such an easy way to decorate candelabraa. I also ended up decorating tealight votives with...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE The wind is howling. No too bad, but hard enough to make Ruusu anxious. She hates the electric shortages, that often occur when it blows strongly; she is mentally preparing herself to get scared. I am sitting on the armchair with the laptop on my lap, she is lying on the couch, but she keeps looking at me, if I am worried, thus should she cast herself in the mood of something terrible happening…  Väinö is not at the least bothered. Today it is...

Parts of the house are warmer than that. I am writing this down here in case some of you wonder how we can cope up here in these cold temperatures. We have thick insulation on the walls, the windows are mostly three layers. If the power lines hold, life is good. I finished the first of the Christmas socks. I do love the...

Idag har jag julstrumpan till er, som jag lovade i mitt tidigare inlägg. Beställde denna kit från Ruby Lockwood, den var fullproppad med spets,band,bling,dekorationer...ja, allt du kan tänka dig att du behöver! Hon hade även sytt den underbara strumpan! Dekorerade den ena sidan i creme färgat, den andra i rosa aktigt. underbara dekorationer och ett jätte fint digi som Angela Holt hade designat för just denna kit. Enda tråkiga är, att nu är den klar! *S* Jag har massor av band,tyger...

Another week has passed, and I've still enjoyed this new lifestyle. I've always been an avid reader (ever since childhood - our parents read a lot to us, and I learned how to myself already when I was 3!), but after youth it's been difficult to find enough time to read books. When I was in University, I felt "reading-tired" after so much academical non-fiction, and preferred newspapers and

A christmas tree by Redrickshaw We opened our 5th advent calendar on Mini treasures wiki today. The new thing is that we are encouraging people to contribute during the calendar, e.g. today we are asking people if they have mini villages as Christmas decoration in their home. Come and see it now! :)

Hej hopp i stugorna! Hoppas att ni alla har det bra där ute! idag har jag en sk explosion box att visa. Jag brukar göra dessa som små album, men denna fick vara en jul hälsning istället. Det roliga med dom är, att det ser ut som en "vanlig" ask, men inuti finns en rolig överraskning... Jag har använt papper från maja design och från Pion design. Älskar båda, dom är så fina, och passar så bra ihop! På locket har jag lite kvistar och bär, som jag har kletat på med "snö" snow...

The month of celebration, candles, hot, spicy glögg, white snow, dark winter days, cold temperatures, gifts, Christmas carols, official month of chocolate, oh! plenty of it, cinnamon cookies… of good will and love.

They played with the doll house a bit and when I went to take pictures of it for today, it did look a little different. There seems to be a Christmas party: The upstairs gang is a loud crowd More pizza is carried in… She has been partying since Halloween… Aunt Lydia has gotten tired and has gone to bed already...

Normal 0 21 false false false FI X-NONE X-NONE Today I will share with you bits of my Advent calendar. Maybe you remember I mentioned December 1 st that I have one that is called Woman’s Strength Calendar. I was curious what would be in it. I have enjoyed every day very much, as it has little notes and advice in it. “If the cinnamon cookie dough is tasty, it really does not matter if the edges of the cookies are little burnt.” “Time sugarcoats Mom’s rutabaga casserole.” (Rutabaga...

We were all there, but mom managed to buy all this without us noticing a thing! 1.12-4.12 First picture shows first and second day, and second picture shows third and fourth day. And so on...

Vähänlaisesti on edelleen ollut hengähdystaukoja, mutta josko niitä vähän alkaisi jo olla! Lauantai ainakin sujui iloisesti ihan vain pikkujouluista toipuessa, mikä tarkoitti torkkuilun ja mässyilyn lisäksi Netflixin uutta Dark -sarjaa. En voi kuin suositella kaikille sci-fin ja yliluonnollisten asioiden ystäville. Äkkiseltään kuulostaa Stranger Things -kopiolta, mutta yhtymäkohtia on lopulta todella vähän. Saksalainen sarja on upeasti tehty, lemppareitani ovat tarinan ohella ne...

I have done this before, however this is my post number 601(!!), I just checked yesterday, it is acceptable to do it again (I think only once before). Confession: I am not a born baker. I had to learn to cook to feed and delight (in good and in...

Yesterday our daughter wanted to go see the Helsinki Christmas Parade. This was actually our first time to see the parade. Eilen meidän tytär toivoi pääsevänsä näkemään Helsingin jouluparaatin. Tämä olikin itse asiassa eka kerta, kun menimme katsomaan paraatia ja jouluvalojen syttymistä. There were thousands of people gathered in the streets of Helsinki where the parade took place. Helsingin keskustaan olikin pakkautunut tuhansia ihmisiä seuraamaan paraatia katujen varsille, joita...

Day 14, thank you again for coming. We have clear, cold morning, soft pastel colors in the sky, the sun is peeking quickly over the horizon to greet me.

I am again off to town in the afternoon; hopefully I am swamped with all kinds of Christmas stuff… looking forward to queueing in the post office even, because somehow, I love to get a small dose of Christmas crazy after this quiet country life, where the scenery is the same on a Monday as it is on a Sunday.

I am running late this morning, all due to the computer installing updates… it took forever, it kept restarting, shutting down and in the end told me that all is not well.

Olen saanut paljon postaustoiveita meidän sohvaan ja joulukuuseen liittyen, joten tässä oli samalla molemmat! Olen hurjan iloinen siitä että saatiin viimein tähän meidän vuokra-asuntoon vähän ilmettä, kun viime kuukaudet ovat menneet lähes tulkoon tyhjässä asunnossa. Vaaleanpunainen sohva oli aika villi veto, mutta rakastan sitä yli kaiken!

No matter how hard I try to resist, the frenzy tries to grab and to hold tightly. I sit here, with my hands on the keyboard and focus on the little marks on the screen. Words, I am trying to find the right words to calm me down. I tell myself that good enough is good enough, there is no need and no room...
