Christmas in Vienna

Christmas 2013 in Vienna - Vienna Christmas Market

Hello friends!

I hope you and yours are enjoying a very happy holiday season!

We definitely are!

One of the things that have made me happy recently was a trip to Vienna that we took a few days before Christmas. The only goal of the trip was to soak up the lovely festive atmosphere that this amazing city is so famous for around this time of year. With a simple goal like this, the mission was really easy to accomplish. We strolled the streets of Vienna city center utterly amazed at the abundance of wonderful Christmas cheer that was present just everywhere.

Are you friends ready for a lot of bright Christmassy goodness? Yes? Then here we go…

crochet and colorful owl mug

Hi, dear friends!

I hope you are all having a wonderful holiday season and that you have enough time to enjoy the lovely simple things around you.

Here are a few lovely simple things that have been making me very happy lately…

Like the owl mug shown in the picture above? Yes, it is my new find on the mug front and I’ve been thinking… could a mug possibly get more adorable?

These days, I really love the corner in my craft room. During the months of winter, I love to decorate it with as many colorful Christmassy decorations as possible. A happy, happy place it is.

This year I’ve used my crochet bird ornament for my poor little tree.


crochet star ball ornament

And I’ve thrown my crochet star balls in the mix as well.


colorful balls of yarn

Lately I have realized that my scrap yarn basket holds rather enough balls of yarn.


colorful crocheted granny squares

So I started to turn the yarn into colorful squares.

And I am giving each square a gray border to get them ready for a future blanket. I can’t wait till it’s finished. I might call it a Color Explosion Blanket.


Christmas Market

I visited a Christmas market.

Christmas Market decorations

And on top of having a cup of lovely almond punch that was so delicious that I will probably never forget it, I saw some very amazing things there. Just like these cute winter decorations.

Or these handmade accessories.

There’s one more Christmas market that I plan to see in the coming days. It’s the one in Vienna. If I go, I will surely bring some colorful coverage! 🙂


christmas gingerbread cookies

Oh, and last but not least, there have been Christmas cookies. I have found these adorable gingerbread ones and simply can’t get enough! Sooo delicious!

Thanks for letting me share!

Wishing you lovely, blessed and cheerful Holidays!
