Rufus rules

This one here is the reason I havent been doing much blogging lately. 
He is a four months old miniature dachs named Rufus. We got him a month ago and now he rules our lives (although we pretend to rule him:).
He's a cutie, isn't he?

Below zero

This weekend we had the first taste of winter, and as always we were not prepared;
not for the cold and not for the icey roads.
But the snow made us happy.

The linen sofa cover is starting to fall apart. While waiting to make new covers I've dressed the sofa in vintage blue and green fabrics.  

The Dahlias were still  budding outside when the season turned the cold side on them. 
These were rescued just in time. 
And right now nothing taste better than ginger bread and Christmas candy 
- no need to wait for Christmas.

Colour rediscovered

This autumn I've seen a lot in the colour red plum / burgundy around; in clothing and in interior decorating. 
It's not exactly a colour I've been a huge fan of these last ... say 29 years or so. 

But it's funny how quickly one gets used to new ideas, and now I would quite like 
a burgundy something around. 

Another colour I really fell for is this strange kind of green in this vintage dish from Figgjo.

And for once our dining room is freshly cleaned and tidy.
Love it!

What a great way to start the new week.
