Christmas in July 2011! Just about the best ever because I shared the celebration with three amazing Scandinavian women who are so generous in sharing inspiration and friendship. Carina, Hanna, and Kathryn.

We have made it! The darkest days of winter are behind us!

The mid-way point between the winter solstice and spring equinox will be celebrated by many in the northern hemisphere tomorrow - on February 2nd.

This truly special day, known as Ground Hog Day, Candlemas, Imbolc, Brigid's Day or mid-winter has been marked with special celebrations and traditions since ancient times. At the end of the post you can find links that will enlighten you further as to the history and customs.

Sorry this is a bit soft - as soon as they are open again, I will replace this!

As you no doubt have figured out by now, I am crazy about Advent Calendars! And I have just figured out that I must have a collection because as of today I have accumulated and made a total of 10 Advent Calendars!

Apparently I just can't get enough of opening little windows!

Open! Open! Open!

Please! Please! Please!

All the demanding and pleading I have done these past few days have been to no avail. This little pea flower refuses to open in time for Midsummer. It is probably waiting for something called sunshine!

I have a whole garden bursting with blossoms - why do I care so much about my sweet peas?
