I've been a bit under the weather last week. Luckily the weekend my parents came and we had a good time. We had a lot of snowfall during their stay. Normally my parents don't enjoy snow so much, but seeing the kids (and I) loved it so much they didn't mind so much. I will post the snow pictures some other day. For now I wanted to share some film.

I mentioned earlier that I was planning to decorate one of these letterboxes. Today I finally started. My idea was to fill all of them with fabric. I haven't glued them all down yet, but I was already so pleased with what it looks like, it was time for a little break. Now to fill all these. I'm sure some Lego will end up in there, and idea I took from Molly. But not just Lego, other things too. It will be fun looking for trinkets to put in here

The Trenino Rosso also known as the Bernina express. So if you're looking for a Bernina sewing machine like my miss Cordelia, most likely you'll end up seeing links for this train if you only google Bernina. The train normally rides from Tirano Italy to St. Moritz Switzerland. It goes through beautiful mountainous area which in winter of course is very white. We took the train in the morning. Had a most delicious lunch. Sorry if the food is so good, I always forget to take pictures. Then we took a stroll over the lake, which was mostly frozen. It was quite odd to see a cricket match on the ice with a piece of green rolled out. And that house in the making with those windows... sigh. Not necessarily in St. Moritz for me where people dress, well ... dress. It was fun walking around and to see it. The train ride was beautiful, although difficult to take good pictures because of the reflection, but then reflection sometimes can give nice pictures

As promised more pictures of Venice Carnivale in the snow. The good thing about snow is that you don't have to worry too much about dust, as it all blends in with the snow ;) I've always struggled a bit with the horizontal and vertical pictures in blog format and then I saw this simple solution to pair two verticals on this blog by Tim Coulson. Beautiful pictures. Venice is famous for its Murano Glass. The beautiful shells are made from that. And those collars. I'm sure they have a specific name I don't know, but they remind me of paintings by Rembrandt
