In window boxes, the summer flowers have given way to heathers and sprigs of pine.
This book has been following me everywhere for years.
There are (easy) arrangements of many of the most beloved carols.
Music is the universal language of mankind, and many carols loved by us (in Finland) have reached us from other countries, like Sweden, Germany, France, Great Britain and the United States. The tongue you see below is Swedish:
"Santa Claus Is Coming to Town", one of the songs that keep popping into my mind. Just think that it was first performed (on a radio show) in 1934, already eighty years ago!
The book is illustrated with old (or old-style) Swedish and Finnish Christmas cards. I have used some from the book and some of those received by my family for this week's mosaic.
Do visit Judith's lovely blog "Lavender Cottage" to see her charming mosaics and many others!
Have a lovely week!
