Frozen...

It's been a cold week here in Finland. This morning the temperature was -24°C.



















Last winter I made several ice wreaths or ice cakes as I called them too. So last night
I got this idea of making some again... I added some white roses I got for my
40th birthday to decorate the wreaths. And I think the result is quite beautiful.

Here are some of the ice cakes with lingonberries which I made two years ago.
I love the white frosting on them :).




















The weather is bright and sunny, and even though it's really cold.... it is so beautiful
outside. The sky is blue and the trees are gorgeous!




















It's a great day to stay inside and craft! I'll better get going back to my sewings...

Stay warm!

Beautiful! I love that you added your birthday roses! I could never really do that since my birthday is in August!!! (well I guess with the freezer...oh good idea, remind me of this next summer :)) Today I had to take the car and after a really long time of scratching ice off the windshield I finally got started, according to the car thermometer -15 degrees here! Super sunny. Happy weekend, dear Mervi :) xo Karen
