Om mig

I am a woman "in the flower of my age". My great hobby is making silver jewellery out of silver clay and sterling silver. Sometimes I sell some too, because I cannot use it all myself. Other interests are SEVEN gorgeous grandchildren - nine with my husband's two, gardening, books, kayaking, photo... I write this blog in English to keep up the language after my retirement. I was a teacher in English and French for 18 years (so I ought to have a blog in French too...) and assistant head at a school for 15 years. My second blog shows my handmade silver jewellery.

My Christmas tree

I decorate it in "the rural tradion", as we did when I was a child and lived on our farm outside Malmö in the south of Sweden. "Pepparkakshjärtan" / gingerbreadhearts with names on of course are a must - takes some time to make them! We used to have red apples hanging in the tree too, but I skip that nowadays. Instead I put some of my "tomtar"/santas in the tree .

En så trevlig ide att dekorera granen med namnade papparkakshjärtan !
