Beat the January (and February) blues!

Last Monday was apparently ‘Blue Monday’ — the most depressing day of the whole year! Courtney and I are always complaining about January and February months here in Northern Europe — it’s dark, cold, wet, the kids are sick and there is not a lot to look out to. Well, on Blue Monday, I put up a few pompoms in front of our living room window to brighten things up a bit, and it had an instant happyfying result. The pompoms are available from Visje bij de Thee — along with many more gorgeous products that would make my January/February blues melt in an instant. I also made this quick Lemon Poppyseed Drizzle cake, and treated myself to some some new Marimekko coffee cups. We’ve got to do what we can, don’t we?!
What’s the weather like where you are??

Definately have to try your “pompom and Lemon Poppyseed cake”-trick! This “dark” weather is tiring, could use some lightning up, too…. Thanks for sharing!

I love this idea! The Pom poms look fab (and what a gorgeous living room you have!) the cake looks yummy too x

cold, dark and grey days are only fine if there is enough snow outside. This year we are lucky and have plenty. So the kinds are well entertained outside. And afterwards a big hot chocolate (for me) and my kinds perfer tea. But the snow is supposed to melt next week. Then we have the winter blues…
