This Moment

Joining SouleMama for {this moment} - A Friday ritual. A single photo - no words - capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember.

Santa Lucia Day - Fête de la Sainte Lucie

This year we celebrated Santa Lucia Day with friends, singing, candlelight, white robes, crowns, saffron bread, ginger cookies, hot chocolate and glögg. It was the warmest and and most beautiful Lucia celebrations we have experienced yet.

Cette année, nous avons célébré la Sainte-Lucie avec des amis, à la lumière des chandelles, avec des chants, des robes blanches, des couronnes, des petits pains au safran, des biscuits au gingembre, chocolat chaud et glögg. Ce fut notre plus belle et chaleureuse célébration de la Sainte-Lucie jusqu'à maintenant.

Wishing you warmth and light on this Santa Lucia Day!

Nous vous souhaitons chaleur et lumière en cette journée de la Sainte-Lucie!

Keep Calm Craft On

Joining Nicole at Frontier Dreams for Keep Calm Craft On...

Working with beeswax, making candles.

Pure gold... It fills the kitchen with such a heavenly smell.

I also made some wood butter

My knitting basket is full of W.I.P. little christmas projects which I cannot show right now. However, I can share a picture of the beautiful Noro yarn (Vintage) that I'm working with.

Happy crafting on!

This Week - Cette semaine

A beautiful sunny week.

Une belle semaine ensoleillée.

The hens had fun in the garden after we finished pulling out the last of our vegetables.

Les poules se sont amusées dans le potager alors que nous venions de cueillir nos derniers légumes. 

Loane made us some stone soup.

Loane nous a préparé de la soupe aux cailloux.
