Christmastime is Here?

Having spent most of my formative childhood in Cincinnati, Ohio, I often miss the dramatic change in the seasons from fall to winter. There was something magical about waking up to a snowy day and getting bundled up in front of the fire, especially on Christmas morning. These days, I barely even realize it’s Christmastime until the malls start overflowing with people and traffic becomes a nightmare.

This year to get into the Christmas spirit, I think I’ll just spend some time gazing at these dreamy photographs from Norwegian artist Rune Guneriussen. Guneriussen builds and photographs these stunning scenes all over Norway – and then unfortunately deconstructs them. I just love the magical winter-like vibe they produce. I could stare at them for hours.

    I love this! Even though we have all 4 seasons in New York (and they’re all beautiful! except for the sweltering summer!), I am fresh off the boat from Eastern Europe, where winter was vast and precipitation was substantial. I’m definitely nostalgic for those winters and big, fluffy blankets of snow (even though we have them here, it’s just not the same), and Guneriussen’s work totally reminds me of that! The rest of the gallery is stunning, too, I want to order a print!

    By the way, I nominated you guys for Versatile Blog of the Year in my latest post – I love your blog and always look forward to seeing what you’ll post next! Happy holidays to you and Celeste! :)
