Enter Polar Night

The moment is here, when we have to say goodbye to the sun. Some goodbyes are sader than others, this one is not that kind.

I know that we will meet again in only two months, that is not long considering how time flies. (and thinking it's only a year since last time we sad goodbye) And considering how many days to open the Christmas calendar, how many Christmas plans and Christmas parties there is in between. And the treat in January, the international film festival that simply takes away all the potensial gloom of the Polar Night.

Thinking of all this, I don't feel sad at all. So - welcome Polar Night!

Between noon and two I'm ususally at my desk, so with light only within these hours a day, I must turn my eyes to objects inside. But I promise to go chase the Northern Lights for more photos!

I will send this photo to Vitra, who encourages people to share photos of everyday use of their objects. I could have cropped it, but everything is connected: this Vitra object is not hanging on the wall by itself - but rather in use next to the curtains, with the radio on and my daughter having youghurt and drinking from her Winnie the Pooh bottle.

I love my Utensilo organizer, absolutely everything goes in there. It's red and bright, and it was a Christmas present from Cohabit three years ago.

The Christmas markets are coming as tight as hails these days. My sister exhibited and sold her fabolous knitted, crocheted and plaited silver jewellery. She's very talented, and absolutely everything is handcrafted. If you ever visit Copenhagen, make sure to visit her shop Unika in Kompanistræde.

And my friend Camilla sold her monsters, skirts, dresses and trousers for kids. She runs the great blog Skrekk og GruThe monsters are so funny, each one of them comes with a different personality.

By the way, have in an unconcious moment obliged myself to run 10 kilometers in the beginning of next year, together with two girlfriends. Help, what came over me. Does that mean not having any wine for all the Christmas parties? Better start running, then.

Wow, I just found your blog and I love it. I will feature a post about it on on Dec. 2nd.
Seeing the Northern Lights is on my "Bucket List." I went to Iceland one time in November, but it was cloudy. Had fun though.
I live in Connecticut, near New York. It's sunny and in the 40's today.
What a treat to find your blog.
Best wishes.
