The thing about arts and crafts, is that they have a real unique quality that cannot otherwise be found in the mass consumer and materialistic normalcy of holiday shopping. For this reason, we are seeking more authentic and aesthetically enjoyable gifts for giving. We are almost certain that the recipients will be more pleased.

Another place we visited yesterday was the Christmas Market, or Weihnachtsmarkt, at Spittelberg. This cozy eighth district of Vienna is breathtaking, especially this time of year. The crisp airs seems to accentuate the colors around you, making the blues and whites of the sky and snow clash with the warm colors of the wood and fire, and even faces.


I have come down with a rather bad cold this weekend so I’ve had to buckle down and stay at home. What else is there to do, but to write, read (Stieg Larsson’s Män som hatar kvinnor), watch movies (Salt and The Wrestler), listen to great radio shows (the latest episode on This American Life is about Crybabies), music (Radiohead right now) and look through pictures, for new inspirations and ideas.

It is quite the cold autumn out there. 11 degrees; gray hues accompanied by cold wind. So, I thought it appropriate to post a few pics from last year, from an October night walking around in our neighborhood. As soon as I am well again, I will take pictures of the autumn light instead.

What are you in the mood for? Hope you’ve had a good and cosy weekend.
