Christmas Market

I just had to share this with you- The Julemarked on Lyngør, our sister island. Craftsmen and designers, farmers and cookie-makers had gathered to sell their products. Take a look at the entrance to the market; so, so beautiful as it got darker. By then we were resting our feet, drinking beer and hot chocolate in the pub, Pers Brygge.

Our bags were stuffed with goodies, and we were also happy to bring back fresh, free range and local eggs! (As local as they get: Made on Sandøya!) With such a luxury we cannot quite decide on how to use them...

I cannot believe X-mas is only the wink of an eye away... In preparation for the festive day to come, although for me, and many others I believe, this whole wonderful month of December is what truly is special - The anticipation, the baking, the decorating, the finding presents and the making of presents!
For some of my friends I've made some earrings. Made from vintage buttons and others from hand painted mother of pearl buttons, I must say I find them so beautiful and they also justify my obsession with buttons!
