And 2012 is coming to an end.
The kenderman thought I should do "the best off 2012" post .
But my last blog (picture) post for this year will be our beloved Sil.

The winner of the last contest is Snor. His story to us was:

Ghandi was once asked what he thought of Western Civilization.
Ghandi replied, "Ahhh, that would be a great idea"

I really liked his story and besides that......
He was the only contender so no trouble for me having to chose the nicest story :-)
I will send him this card and a little present.


Seen from this angle, I like the relationship between these overhead power lines.

We have been trying to buy a vintage object for our christmas tree each year.
This year we bought a large owl adornment.
It's probably an (Oehoe) Eagle Owl  :-)

Star of Bethlehem

Finally a new contest for you!
You can be "my Star of Betlehem" if you post a nice anecdote of max 120 words.
I'll choose a winner with Christmas, next wednesday at 21.00 CET.
Hopefully you're going to tell me a great story.
There is a small but beautiful price to win.

Christmas Contest

I needed some time to figure out a new contest......


Would you call this a Love Potatoe?
The kenderman does :-)

Star Light

LED Christmas light from Ikea

I love this time of the year.
Although it's dark, the days are shortening and the light levels are decreasing, it's really cozy with all the Christmas lights.

In the village where the kenderman and I were born, lives a large colony of rooks.
You can find them foraging in small groups troughout the village.
It's a shame we don't see any rooks where we live now.
We miss these clever birds.

Saturday Lunch


Vase designed by Hella Jongerius.

You're used to a kenderfrau blog post every day, and sometimes, more than one a day.
I failed to keep up this week because I've been so busy. Hoping to improve this :-)

Enjoy your weekend!

Tree II

It's incredible hard to photograph the tree.
Due to the decreasing daylight levels it's getting harder every day.
Besides the fact we leave our house and we come back to it in the dark
This photo isn't very good but it gives you an idea what our X-mas tree look like.
It's good to be home again!

Yesterday it has been snowing for a couple of hours and the temperature is decreasing!

Leaded Glass

Me and the kenderman aren't religious but we have been visiting churches because of our interest for architecture.
In the past, during the holiday season, my parent used to drag me and my brother into churches.
But as a teenager I was interested in something completely different  :-)
