The tears came early this year. October 26th, Christmas still 2 months away, but this morning at IKEA, Peter shared his first drops when we entered the Christmas department.
Normally his first tears flow when the Merci commercial is being shown on television, but I completely understood the early arrival. I never had a click with Christmas. It's too much, too American and too everything. But Swedish Christmas is what Christmas should be all about. It's sober, natural, simple and red. IKEA can even get ME hooked on Christmas.
Later on we went to our garden center with the biggest Christmas department of our country. No tears there. It was nice to watch, but no emotions. Just some laughs and giggles because of the opulence. This department showed me everything I hate about Christmas.
I just found this ad in a Dutch folder for interiors. Carpet "Heavy Shag" is the best name for a carpet ever!
Imagine yourself naked on it with the one(s) you love, in front of a fireplace, in a wooden cabin high up the mountains. Heavy shagging guaranteed!

Many moons ago we looked like this and we got married and we made these keychains. Peter is still using this keychain, 12 years later. We look pretty much the same I think, except for my butt-ugly glasses. Good memories... and it holds his keys together.
This series of works by Patrick Seymour is called Halloween Night. But since I don't have a click with anything Halloweeny (forgive me, I'm Dutch...) I present this as a nice series of collages of some of my favourite movies. Can you guess my number one? I bet you can!
