Merry Christmas!

I hope you have a wonderful days in the arms of your family :) I have. The Christmas here in Iceland started yesterday at 18:00 with lovely family dinner and after that we opened our gifts and had a wonderful time togeather. Today we just relax and enjoy life ;)

Those funny guys in the photo are icelandic yule-lads. We have 13 of them and they all have funny names, like Door-Slammer and Meat-Hook :) They start to arriwe 13 days before christmas, one each day and they put little gifts in childrens shoe...if they behave good ;) If you are interested you can read more about them here.

I have't had much time the last days to make miniatures but I will probably sit down today and make something. Can't wait ;)


  1. That's a wonderful photo. I took a look at that link, that's very interesting information, they all seem to be very interested in food! I hope you enjoy your relaxing time and make some minis. I will be busy this weekend preparing to go to New Zealand so no mini-making for me for a while but I will enjoy working on our cottage there.

  2. Thank you Norma :) Those yule-lads are much nicer today and more like the american Santa Clause.
