Happy weekend everyone 👋
In proud collaboration with @granit
Taking it slow this year for Christmas, when it comes to gifts, and everything else as well. For the kids we usually give away something that we can do together, I’m thinking about booking a ballet at the opera because my kids love to play ballerinas at home. For family and friends I just give a few small gifts (we stopped giving expensive things to each other in my family many years ago). But I still love to wrap in some special vintage findings like beautiful old plates or silver cutlery. Or I simply put together some photos that I’ve taken or something yummy to nibble on. But what I do love is to wrap it all up! I love to make something with my hands, and to make things pretty. I love to add a Christmas decoration on a carefully wrapped gift, to put in the tree or to add a pretty velvet ribbon or to make my own sealing wax. It’s all in the details. #granit #alliseeispretty

Der erste “richtige” Frost ist da und der morgendliche Hundespaziergang wird zur Frischedusche. ..
First frost in the morning. My dog loves it! I’m still practicing 😆
In love with these red maple leaves!! They always remind me of my Grandmother’s house and a beautiful old tree we would climb in her front yard.

We don’t get to travel a lot, unfortunately, but last month we spent amazing few days in Florence Italy. I still think about our trip every day and how magical it was.
So when I had an opportunity to choose a location for my very own custom map poster I had a few options in mind at first, but then I decided on Florence, because every time we’ll be looking at it, we’ll be reminded of the wonderful time we had.
Thank you @mapiful
for this beautiful wall art. Check out my story to see where I hung it 😍
You can create your own map with any place in the world, you can even customize the caption, like I did, I wanted it to be the way the locals call it, Firenze. ☺️
What’s your favorite place in the world? 😉
A good glass of hot coffee on a melancholic day. It's Friday but I’m feeling like on a Sunday afternoon. I’ve been super busy in the last couple of days, moving to one place to another..and I’m still a bit confused.
Un buon bicchiere di caffè bollente in un giorno melanconico. È venerdì ma mi sembra che sia un pomeriggio domenicale. Sono stata super occupata negli ultimi giorni, mi sono spostata da un posto all’altro...e sono ancora un po’ confusa.

🎀💌 I received a beautiful greeting card a few month ago and still needed extra times to find an idea making it more fabulous on my post. Actually, this card came along with a cute white cup but being honest i'll search for another idea to post the cup next time. So, this is a flatlay creation i could share to you today. Maybe it ain't the best one but made with love from the bottom of my heart. A great big thank you to my lovely ig friend, Anne Weller @anne_weller
who has sent me this precious card from across ocean, truly happy for our friendship and to all of you who are always giving me ❤ and positive comments, i do appreciate it. Happy Friday everyone and get ready for the weekend xx🌼

It's Friday and I have lots of things on my to do list today. I'm starting each morning with painting. For those of you who don't know I've set myself a 365 challenge to do a painting every day. It's a great morning practice and really gets my creativity going before I start work. I'm on Day 19 and I'm posting the results on Stories every day and saving in higlights. 😊 Have you ever set yourself a creative goal? I'd love to know about it. 😊 Happy Friday 💕

[AD] Is it too early for me to mention the c word?
Seems to start earlier every year, right?
I for one am totally onboard with that. I’m really looking forward to slowing down for Christmas and eating all the mince pies!
This year, we’ll be enjoying the run up to Christmas with some fun Christmas crafts from the Winston the Mouse Delivered Christmas book.
The book has fun crafts and activities to be enjoyed during advent and includes things like making a note for Santa and tutorials for making pom-pom robins. It’s beautifully illustrated and Elodie, in particular, is very excited to get started on the activities! @macmillankidsuk @mralextsmith #howwinstondeliveredchristmas

With the high winds we’ve had this week, we’ve had branches and boughs from our eucalyptus and olive trees strewn all over our yard. Instead of throwing them all away, I decided to save a few to add to the roses, alstroemeria, and statice I bought from the flower market. Happy Thursday everyone. 🌿

Пока Ростов наслаждается первым снегом, в Москве - серый и холодный ноябрь.
Настроение, увы, тоже серое и холодное. Как ни крути, а ноябрь - самый отвратительный месяц в году. Вот в каждом месяце можно найти что-то хорошее...
🎄 Декабрь: предпраздничное настроение, приятная суета с поиском подарков, все вокруг сверкает цветными огоньками!
❄ В январе - новогодние каникулы и снег 🎀 Февраль можно любить хотя бы за его праздники.
🌷 Март: ожидание весны и первые цветы.
🌤 В апреле наконец-то начинает теплеть.
🌿 Май. Ну тут очевидно! Все любят май!
☀ Июнь, июль, август: как бы ни было жарко, лето тоже все любят. Даже не спорьте.
🍃 В сентябре жара потихоньку спадает, но ещё тепло.
🍂 Октябрь - это пик золотой осени.
❓А что хорошего в ноябре?
Vilken inspirerande kväll igår. Och vi möttes med bubbel i det vackra orangeriet.
What a inspiration evening yesterday in the beautiful conservatory.
Flower season is officiellt over in Sweden, however I still have a few fighting roses in my garden. Even though everything is dying, it doesn’t matter when fall is this pretty. I’m always on the search for beautiful words to awake my soul, I haven’t been able to write down my own lately so I’m reaching out for you, and your words. Have you heard something very wise lately that you would like to share here. Or do you have a favourite quote or saying that has been following you for years, please open up with me, maybe I can start writing with my heart again. I will share a few of my favourites in stories so stop by there in a while. Good night! #alliseeispretty
• ‘We cannot stop to play, Master Bod. For soon enough tomorrow night comes. And how often can a man say that?’
‘Every night,’ said Bod, ‘Tomorrow night always comes.’
‘Not this one’ said Fortinbras. ‘Not once in a blue moon, or a month of Sunday’s.’ ~ The Graveyard Book, Neil Gaiman •
If you enjoy unusual stories, eerie and old fashioned tales of ghosts and shapeshifters, then you simply must read this book (if you haven’t already of course, which some of you may have, after all we’re bookish pocket pals), it’s just magical. A lovely story about growing up and finding your boundaries in a twisty, dark way. Pure magic. Have you read any Neil Gaiman? This is the third of his books that I’ve read and I’ve adored them all.
I don’t know if you’ve seen the whispers of conversation here over the past few days about Instagram changes and lower engagement, but as always it does make me pause to reflect on why I’m here. I always come back to the community. I love chatting to people that I would never have otherwise had the opportunity to talk to, I love seeing how other people see the world. I love finding other like minded folk who just get “it”. And then there’s the simple fact that I love looking at beautiful things, seeing the world through other people’s eyes, visiting cities I have never set foot in... perhaps I am a dreamer, some of the very reasons that I love Instagram are the same as the reasons I read. Of course I find it disappointing when my engagement is low and folk don’t see my posts, but this is my online diary too in some ways, my way of capturing my world, and it’s my way of sharing my creativity, this little app has given me more than I ever could have imagined. What is Instagram to you? Please do share as I think it means different things to us all... have a lovely evening 😘
Hello Gorgeous! My favorite pink roses ❤️...
These beautiful chrysanthemums look like Dahlias to me. In fact when I saw them in a grocery store, as embarrassing as it is, I thought they were Dahlias, till I saw the leaves. 🙈 .
In other news, we’ve had our first real snowfall today, not just the dusting. And it’s freezing cold! First snow always gets me in a Christmas mood. Does this happen to you? Keep telling myself, it’s way too early! .
Have a wonderful day!

Blumen im Haus haben eine ganz eigene Kraft. Sie bringen Frische, Belebung und Farbe. Seitdem wir unseren Küchentisch haben stehen immer frische Blumen darauf. Unser alter Tisch war rund und relativ klein, da passten keine mehr drauf. Umso mehr genieße und zelebriere ich jetzt die Flowerpower. Wie ist es bei euch? Blumen/ Grünpflanzen oder gar nichts davon? ..
Since we got our kitchentable we’ve got fresh flowers on it all the time. It’s such a fresh and colorful spot. I love it. What’s about your home? Are there fresh flowers? Or some other plants?

💕🌸 Hello beautiful hearts, how's Wednesday treating you? I'm still arranging my pink ixora on my favourite corner. How about you, what's your plan for creating something today? 🌸💕

I’m back to work today! My 5 days off have felt like forever, although I’m sure once I walk back through the door it won’t even feel like I had 5 minutes off 🙈
Yesterday I popped into the Ashmolean to see the Flemish still life’s Room, it’s magical. I alway imagine how they would have felt about Instagram, I think they would have loved it 😃 and when I look at their work and see the level of detail in one of their paintings, including butterflies on the bouquets and grapes spilling out of vases, I resolve not to worry about the extra props that I add into a still life photo, it’s been a “thing” since the Dutch Golden Age (spanning the entirety of the c17th) 😉 I shared a few photos in my Stories if you’d like a glimpse.
I also dropped by @morethanadodo
yesterday to see the bacteria display they’ve got on, the main exhibit is awesome, I shared a little glimpse of that too in my Stories. The Natural History Museum & the Pitt Rivers is my favourite museum to visit here in Oxford, I’m dying to go to the one in London, who’s been?
I also picked up a few more books yesterday 🙈 Virginia Woolf’s A Writers Diary, Proust’s Swann’s Way because @booksandcoffeestains
is hosting a readalong with @but_i_thought_
and I couldn’t resist and The Silence of the Sea by Yrsa Sigurdardottir as @crimebythebook
raves about her writing! I’ll be honest, I’m already just over halfway through and very much enjoying it. What’s your current read? Are you reading anything for #nonfictionnovember
? Time for me to get ready for work, I’m still in my pjs 😆, have a lovely day pocket friends 😘
