3rd Advent & Sta. Lucia Day on my SSS# 43

Yes! 2 more weeks & it's Christmas Day...

Tomorrow 12th of December is the 3rd Advent but beforehand, Sweden celebrates Sta. Lucia Day (pronounce Italian) on December 13th. It's special day. Students from music schools, carols & visits hospitals, home for the aged, banks, public places & schools. And mind you, my friends, this day, our youths drink to death §;-) I meant, this is their day to try alcohol, and get pissed. Hope swedish parents advice their kids just to have a moderate intake, or else "your in trouble, kiddo!"

I don't know what will be the outcome of my participation today, as I didn't have so much sun today, although I was out early & out again mid-day but to no avail, so, as usual have some shots at my home & some from my office yesterday.

Before I left, I lit this candle for a cozy touch
On my window pane, in my washing sink, some subtle?
My candle holder is buried but both stood still giving me wink*
GH wants to shovel the snow that stuck the driveway b4 we left
Our gazebo during winter, a real pretty cloché
Sun this morning... at 07.30am while walking around vicinity
No shadow but I just want to share my fresh & calm morning §;-)
And the platform of our train station, cozy, huh?
We ended up to a square in town & this spotted my sharp eyes...
When we came back home, this is how our gazebo looks like
Another subtle, anyhow a glimpse of shadow, though?
Vignettes I love in my home...
My modified Nativity lays on a mirrored cake stand, you like it?

That's mine & GH day, after having our morning walked... then we had a great day preparing for dinner...
This was the day after lunch on Friday 10th of December
Ha! behind is where I hide, when don't hear from me...
Staffs cozy corner but I only took the thing I needed
Bar tables, far end of from the cozy corner...

WOW!!! I thought I ony have some shot, eh?

Before hence, don't 4get to head over to Tracy @

Good NITE...

  1. I'll stay warm and cozy in side your home, if you don't mind, it looks to cold and slushy out there for me...warm candle light, soft music, a latte...ahhh...paradise, as the sleet fall down around me...snow they say for tomorrow. I got my fingers and toes crossed that it misses us...YEAH RIGHT!!!

    Have a wonderful weekend lil' friend, stay warm and well!!!

  2. You have LOTS of snow in Stockholm. Yet I notice that whether it is day or night, the snow is perfect for shadows! The fresh snow is lovely if somewhat inconvenient - who wants to sit on that snow covered bench while waiting for the train??

    The interior of your house is always lovely. And the soft shadows of the Advent angels are lovely, too!

  3. Here I thought you weren't going to have many shadows to offer with what you started out saying! I love all the vignettes in your home.
    Although I did not find that bench to be very cozy!
    I hope you have a great 3d Advent too!

  4. It all looks far too cold for me to even survive one day in your country at winter time! As much as I'd love to visit, I'll be sure to do so only in spring/summer I think! Apart from everything looking so cold, you did find some awesome shadows! Well done you! It can't have been easy to find them! Happy week to you :)

  5. Så vackert med alla ljusen i paviljongen, ser ut som ett sagohus ute. Så hemskt med bomb-mannen, riktig tur att du inte var där. Krya på dig nu, du får vila ordentligt så du blir frisk.
    Adventskram till dig vännen

  6. Visst är hon underbar mitt lilla barnbarn ... =)

    Visst är det tråkigt när barnen bara vill ha pengar, men skönt att slippa handla och leta rätt presenter.

    ha en skön 3:e advent!!
    Kram Patricia

  17. Lovely pictures! I really enjoyed looking at them. My daughter bounced around excitedly talking about how beautiful they are.
    Love your SSS pic too!

  18. Once again your images are delightful! All that Winter snow makes for some shovelling hey. Our Summer Down Under is very late appearing this year, so I'm really looking forward to our days on the beach coming soon.
