Yesterdays new snowfall

It's cold and pretty.
Snow on wood - old pear tree.
Snow on wood - neighbours swedish-red garage.
The fourlegged listening to friends barking from afar.
Leo - friend of fourlegged - maybe feeling a little cold?

Four Foxes

First fine silver and cobber fox-pins from Becky Crow, next an iron fox from somewhere around High Wycombe in England, and last our new brass door knocker from Antropologie.

I really like this door knocker - and it doesn't need batteries. You can find many other animal door knockers out there.



The invitations for the birthday party was made by me. It was a fun job.

Winters delight - the rosy-fingered dawn

.. fantastic expression by Homér.
One of the only things I remember from Latin-class in school, well there is also "Caput deponit", but that's another story :O)


Medieval Birthday

This weekend we celebrated my fathers 70th birthday with family and friends at Esrum Abbey in Grib Skov (big forest). We had a nice medieval christmas buffet and then explored the place.

My father was brought up near by, both his father and grandfather and several of their brothers were working in the forest. For a few winthers he and his younger brother helped carrying firewood for a fine old lady, who lived in the remains of the abbey.

The place was founded in 1151 as a cistercian abbey by archbishop Eskil. It became the biggest cistercian abbey in the Nordic Countries. Nowadays it's a museum. It's a fine place for a picnic in summer as well.
