It feels like a lot of my time in December is about how to light up the dark!

Since we moved back to Sweden and Stockholm it gets harder and harder to handle the dark winter months. My husband and I really don’t feel that we are ment to live here. Although we really love our life here, the house, our friends and Stockholm we clearly are warm climate people, haha.

We have a wonderful life it is just the weather and, in the winter, the light that get us down. So a lot of candles are needed and it gets a bit better closer to Christmas when we fill the house with Christmas lights.

If you follow me you know that I have these beautiful candle holders/vases by Louise Roe, at my dining table. I love them and use them every meal. I normally use the larger tea candles for them, with aluminium cups. But the light gets even more beautiful using the tea candles with plastic cups, however they are a bit more expensive and not something I use everyday.

My latest visit to IKEA made me smile though as they now sell the plastic cup ones and they are a lot less expensive than in other stores, long live IKEA 🙂
