Saturday Snow Fever! Visitors, SSS, Scenic Sunday & JOIN MY ADVENT Surprises below...

Min familj är glada denna helg eftersom vi har en överaskning familjeträff. Jätte roligt! Det är gubben mins storebror med familjen som kom och sov över inatt hos oss och hans barn kom över med deras respektive och min svärmors syster. Sen bjöds en liten mysig middag.

They make my hubby's life meaningful
A christmas gift from "nicolinasboning" Thanks SIL, hope you enjoyed your stay! §:-)
Nu är Stockholm helt vit. Kul... men så är det kallt oxå! ... ljus oxå!!! Njaaa... blixthalt oxå! Hmmm... Hoppas alla blir glada nu när det snöar. Det låter att jag är inte ens nöjd, eller? Jag trivs inte när det är kallt...

As you seen lately, I joined the Shadow Shot Sunday hosted by "hey harriet". Yeah! actually I don't have any theme in my blog. I just post whatever I feel & came across my mind. I just want to be one of a kind. I saw many bloggers who's having theme and at the end, it can be boring as all of us have the same theme, am I right? I don't have anything to do with it anyway. It's just my thoughts. I enjoyed browsing them anyway.

So, here's my shots for this sunday where I found after digging my archives coz nowadays, we have a poor sunshine up north.

  3. Hi Chie - don't change a thing on your blog! You are right about posting just about things that come to you on the day, it is such a good reflection of you & we can all get to know you better that way. But I really enjoy your Freaky Friday, so please keep that going.
    Millie ^_^

  4. Hi I am visiting your site for only the 2nd time as we are new friends to one another.

    You have been showing so many unusual pieces of furniture that the ideas stay in my head.

    I am a crafter but I also have other interests. I think you are right to post what interests you- what excites you about things you have seen, what you want to share. If you are enthused by your blog, then others will be too.

    I thought your turquoise candle glass was very beautiful. I like turquoise with deep pink- so Summery and cheerful. This season I am seeing a lot of Christmas decorations in red and turquoise and they look so cute.

  5. I come back because you are a nice person and I enjoy seeing life from your perspective. I would continue posting on whatever makes you happy!
    You are very generous to giveaway such lovely things. Anyone would be very lucky to win any of them!

  15. Hej Chie vännen!

    Jag återkommer alltid till dej, för att du är en så go och skön bloggarvän, underbara inlägg och du ger oxå så gulliga kommentarer.

    Jag gillar när du jämför ditt liv nu och då, det är så kul att se skillnaden mellan olika kulturer.

    Vad du kunde ändra i din blogg, är dagens bakgrundsfärg, vilken du skall ha är lite svårt att säja. Men du bjuder på så fina bilder och då, tycker jag att du skall låta bilderna tala, så en neutralare färg, kanske svart, det blir väldigt effektfullt, om du kollar in min fotoblogg

    så kan du se vad svart gör som bakgrund.

    Och givetvis vill jag delta i din Surprise-give-away adventstävling, det skulle vara underbart att få någon av dina vackra gåvor.

    Många många Solvarma Kramar från Irene

  16. Hola amiga mio!

    Jag tycker det är snyggt med svart bakrund, men det är ju jag, du kan ju försöka med kanske nån lite ljusare färg.

    Med header bild, menar du den som jag har upptill i min blogg Solvarma foton? om det är den du menar kan jag skicka den via mejl till dej. Den bilden har jag fotat i Sète i södra Frankrike in vid en helt underbar snäckstrand, som vi brukade sova över vid i bilen. Så detta foto tog jag en tidig morron när solstrålarna väckte mej.

    Kramar till dej min Goa vän från Irene

  17. Hello! thanks for the visit. You have a very interesting post, all are wonderful especially the scenic Sunday. Happy weekend...

  18. Your shadow shots are wonderful. I enjoy seeing your family shots especially since I'm a Mommy Blogger. I wish you a happy, warm week with some sunshine!

  19. you post so many wonderful things, faces and items and snow and shadows!!

    lovely!! :)

  20. Great super shots - isn't it fun looking back at old pictures and seeing all of the shadows you were unaware that were there?

  21. Very Beautiful Church Photo that you posted for Scenic Sunday. It would be fun to see what treasures the interior of the Church holds. Thank you for visiting my photoblog.

  22. Cool shadows. I especially like the beach one!

  23. Great shadow shots. It's interesting on the second SSS that the shadow on the shirt is very purple. I thought this was part of the shirt at first. :)

  24. Hej från ett kallt naboland.
    Det är klart man vill vara med.
    Varför jag kommer tillbaka till dig är nog väldigt lätt att tala om.
    För det första har du en mysig blogg. Dina inlägg om hur det är här och där du bodde förr är spännande.
    Så har du alltid en god kommentar till övers när man kikar in till dig.
    Ha det så godt nu den här måndagen.
    Kramen Synne.

  25. Very interesting blog - well done

  26. Re: Lily of the Valley

    Tack att du kunde vara med.

    Re: Forgjengelige ting

    Thanks for a nice motivation ´bout you coming back in my site.

    Re: MoonLover

    Det är kul med din motivation varför du kommer tillbaka hos mig.

    Re: Lotta

    YUP, snön har vi gott om nu. Hmmm… du är väl för upptagen, tror jag.
    Men, vem bryr sig om bloggar om man har mycket annat, eller hur? Blogandet kan väl vänta.
    Det är alltid kul att du tittar alltid in hos mig. Du vet säker vad jag menar.

    Re: Annette

    Du är en god sportvän från början och vi hjälper varandra att ha tålamod i somras joggandet på morgonen. Det var faktiskt kul. Jag var tvungen att kolla min blogg om du ska ut eller icke.
    Känns verklig.


  27. RE: Synne

    Du är den första svensk läsare jag hade och som dig, jag trivs och har kul i din blogg med.
    Din motivation om min blogg och mig själv värmer mitt hjärta. Jag visar bara vem jag är och jag är den vad som står på varje ord.

    Hoppas du stannar kvar! Alltid kjams!

    Re. Irene

    Du är en av dem svensk läsare som Synne. Jag följer dig med var du än går/åker §:-)
    Tack att du är kvar och tack för din motivation om mig och min bloggsida.

    Häng kvar, skulle jag fråga dig.

  28. Re: Rosebud

    That’s a wonderful words you uttered about me, Lady?
    Thanks a lot for having you here & keep following my days.
    I’m fascinated of our friendship although through the blogland.

  29. Här har vi också såå mycket snö! Roligt att se "varma" bilder också! Väntar så till värmen nu.. bara tre dagar kvar, så är vi där.


  30. Re: Melanie

    Yeah! Indeed… we ended up as blog friends in our SSS. I never regret it. I adore your craftsmanship. How I wish I could do such. Anyhow, great to hear you enjoyed in here and post makes your ideas brighten up. Keep going, Lady

    Re: Lisa

    What a lovely motivation. One of a few that struck me, yes! Hope you’re here to stay, although my SSS is very poor nowadays.

    Re: Alice

    Yes, indeed. Amazing! Hope you keep looking...

    Re: MK

    You’re the first Asian blogger whom I like best. You always make me feel nostalgic and of course feel very homesick. I started to know few fellow Asian bloggers through your bloggsite and I appreciate it.
    Hope you stay here & keep on looking.

  31. Re: Baruch

    Nice to hear that you enjoy.
