I Miss My Apartment

It appears that I have never told you about my old apartment in Vilnius. Finally when I managed to pull this interior together and began to love it I moved to Iceland. I have never made proper pictures of it. These are made by real estate agents 5 years ago. It was a one bedroom … Continue reading

Halloween . . . on the Last Moment

Busy doing nothing. Nothing is when it is no significant, visible results to show. Well still had some time to decorate the house. Me and my daughter were cutting pumpkins. Happy Halloween!

For The Better Year!

In between making marzipan and chocolate goodies for tomorrow’s celebration, reading pavlova’s recipe, making lemon curd and paying the last taxes, I would like to stop and thank you all for being with me one more wonderful year! Thanks for following, awarding my blog (I appreciate it very much despite of all!), commenting and just … Continue reading

Winter Garden in Christmas Colors

Þvörusleikir and Living Room Updates

Þvörusleikir or Spoon-Licker came last night. He is the fourth brother troll. He is steeling long-handle spoons (is. þvörur) and is very tall. I also updated our living room for Holidays. You can see here how it looked before. Now it looks like that: Garden updates:

Stúfur Came!

Stúfur or Stubby is very short. He is stealing pans to eat the crust left on them. From the beginning of this week I was working on the new Christmas project: I was making Yule Lads for the garden. They supposed to be placed one by one in front of the house every day until … Continue reading

One more handcrafted project is over and on the way to my Etsy shop! This is a whole family of owls out of recycled jeans with crocheted details. A perfect gift or decoration for home. This one was made first and belongs to my daughter: This is a sneak peek to the Christmas decoration project … Continue reading
