Tag Archives: festivities


It is a lot of festivities and events this time of year. At home, at work & with friends. Sometimes it’s not so much about what is offered but more about how to experience the environment and how it feels. And that can be easily achieved with relatively simple means and a little creativity. Tablecloth, napkins, lots of candles of various heights and many translucent vases and glass for the transparent effect’s sake – especially toward evening.

Table setting

Table setting in our home is very basic – tablecloth, crockery, napkins, candlesticks & cut flowers are usually in natural colors with an occasional color. This picture is quite the opposite & perhaps something that we could take on, when in the mood.

Lovely things

Beauty, inspiration & lovely things are found everywhere in our presence – in large & small quantities.

Festivities are closing in and people here & there are starting to get together for the yearly party with neighbours  work, schoolmates, business partners – and of course family & friends.

It’s always the company you surround yourself with that makes the event, no doubts but why not spice it up with some colour & decorations to make it more memorable & inviting.

New year

So, here we are again – a new year with new opportunities. What do you think – will we do things differently, make better decisions, learn from the old, learn from mistakes. Sometimes it’s difficult to see the small steps we take, that actually changes & improves. Moreover, we live in the future more than the present. We are in such a hurry with everything that we miss the essential. To actually live in a slow trot & experience things up close. You may already live your life the way you want, at the pace & the lifestyle you aspire. Good on you then, congratulations & keep it up!

I for my part, want more peace & quiet around me. To be able to think & complete a thought without losing the thread. To have time for what’s important & the possibility to opt out things that takes time & energy, unnecessarily. It’s easier said than done. To continuously refine, modify & improve, is a big part of life. What is precious is up to each one, of course. It seems to me that time is that which is most sought after by many. It might be worth considering what we make of our time. Properly used, perhaps, we don’t need more time.

I hope you will achieve some of your dreams for the coming year. Above all, that you will stay healthy & strong with near & dear. I hope that you get to experience many happy moments & sees possibilities  that pops up around you.

Thanks for taking the time to follow my blog during this first year. Also for all your nice comments & encouragement. Whatever you do, remember to live in the present. Here & now!

Here’s a mix of various images that might fit into the celebration of the new year.
