Christmas Eve

God Jul och Gott Nytt År

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year

Here in Sweden, Father Christmas starts his rounds to deliver presents on Christmas Eve, and he usually knocks on the door in person instead of trying to squeeze in through the chimney.

The little house is a copy of storehouse from Northern Sweden. I wasn't sure of its origin but my aunt recently told me she remembers it from her childhood; her and my mother's father came from up North. The wooden bowl on the right is also from the same parts; that I think was bought on a holiday trip our family made there in the late 60's. The body of the Santa figure is a pine cone; I got that from a friend.

I hope Santa knocks on your door soon. I like that better than chimmeys. The little house is really cute.

DawnTreader's Picture Book

For this blog, I have chosen a template that allows me to show pictures as big as possible . Some of the things you usually find in the sidebar, you will find here at the bottom of the page instead - Blog Archive, Followers etc.

My camera is a Nikon Coolpix 4600.
For basic editing of most photos and collages I use Picasa 3.
Sometimes I also experiment with some more "artistic" effects in Photoshop Elements or Paint Shop Pro.
