Happiness is in the small stuff...
... in "creating" something pretty, like these withered tulips captured in the ice...
... and sometimes even more special things happen...
The sweet Leah of Faith's Crafts Box hosted a lovely giveaway some weeks ago. Guess who won!!! Some days ago the postwoman delivered not one but two parcels to me. Let's see what there was inside...
Nature is an endless source of beauty, happiness and inspiration.
February is "helmikuu" in Finnish. "Helmi" means pearl (and "kuu" means month). Some say the name comes from the blanket of snow glistening in the sun, some say it comes from the icy "pearls" frozen to twigs and branches and glinting in the sunlight. Well, obviously the sparkling things are not pearls... they are diamonds, as can be clearly seen in the photo below, but "timanttikuu" would be too long a name. :)
Thank you, Karen, Judith and Stephanie, for hosting!
P.S. Mansikkatilan mailla -blogin Tainan ja Pieni Lintu -blogin Susannan inspiroimana
oli ihan pakko kokeilla Sherwin-Williams ColorSnap -ohjelmaa.
Osallistun siis tämän viikon MakroTex-haasteeseen, aiheena väripaletti.
Täältä löytyy Susannan postaus ColorSnap-ohjelmasta ja
täältä löytyy Tainan kauniita väripaletteja.
With this cute Eurasian tree sparrow (Passer montanus), I will participate in Eileen's
Since my favourite colour (for the Valentine's Day) is pink, let's go on in the pinkish theme, with some of the last summer's flowers... :)
Osallistun näillä kuvilla myös tämän viikon MakroTex-haasteeseen.

Mukavaa helmikuista viikkoa kaikille!
