Hello friends! how are you? Keeping warm I hope? Here in southern Sweden it’s minus 7 degrees Celsius (19 Fahrenheit). As long as I’m wrapped up, I love it as it’s a very dry cold and everything is white – like a true winter wonderland! A lot of Northern Europe is now blanketed in snow, so we’re all hoping for a white Christmas! Do you have snow where you are too? In Finland, Hanna and her husband Tomas, and children Frans, Hilda and Eedvin are cosying up in their charming rustic cottage in rural Finland. 
You’ll likely recognise their home as I featured it last year – and it’s so unique and memorable! This morning I popped over to Hanna’s instagram as I was intrigued to see how the family have decorated their home for Christmas – and of course, it looks as cosy as can be! Here are a few pictures showing touches of red, a rustic tree, homemade paper flowers and sofas draped in sheepskin. A perfect place to curl up and spend ‘Joulo‘ (Christmas).
Hanna loves making paper snow angels and flowers to hang on the tree and in the window.

I love the rustic tree, it’s so pretty, don’t you think? Did you see my Scandinavian Christmas tree round-up on Friday? There are some lovely rustic ones in there too! 

How lovely! I can just imagine coming in from the snow and cosying up there with the fires roaring, how about you?

If you like to make things at Christmas and are on the look out for more DIY ideas this week, here are some my favourites: 
Have a great start to the week, stay toasty!
