Dear Monday,

At home, the secret message is scribbled with a very secret language by my brother´s handwriting. Boat, games, hamburger, Greetings: Boat. Turquoise slipper friends met other childhood friends. White snow reflected the light of a full moon at midnight, and the yard birch tree crossed the whole yard with its shadow. The next day a wolf was seen on our fields. Just that the wolf turned to become a dog with a closer look. Birds, they flew around an oak tree catching a seed or three and enjoying them on branches of bare neighboring birch trees. Not cross-country skiing yet, but hopefully soon.

Just a moment ago, I have emailed to the ones receiving some winter postcards (or made a comment on your blog if you did not leave your email address): Tanja, Carolina, Sarah, Heather, Susan, Darcy, Rotaeffchenundich, Pamela, Yelena B., Barbara B., Polly, Gise, Alexa, Millie and Jennifer. Hopefully you will like the cards!

White snow blanket covering all around. Busy hands painting and packing, new tea is soon brewed.

Have a warm week!

    I love the last photo. Tigger and animals and secret messages are still part of my life grown up. :)

  11. Just love your secret message story. My dad put a "treasure map" in a brass candlestick when we were children! My 3 sisters and I loved the mystery of it all. Sometimes Dad would get it out when we had a dinner guest and they would be fooled just like us :)
    I must have another look when I visit him next weekend. Oooh! I can't wait now I am reminded of it!

  12. Thank you Corto Metraje! Happy that you like it dear Heather!

    Dear Janelle, thank you for telling me about your secret message (: It sounds wonderful, it would be lovely to see your Dad´s map. Enjoy the moments of finding it again!
