Nature as Swedish Christmas inspiration?

My favorite thing about Christmas is to go back home to Sweden.  I get the brutal weather report from my mother every day, 10- 12 degrees Fahrenheit and last night when I checked my Iphone it said -4 degrees!! But I still can’t wait to get there next week!

The whole country is covered with snow and ice, and it’s dark except for a couple of hours a day, but there’s nothing like a cold, crisp winter night, when the glistening snow lights up the darkness.  Everything is so beautiful, icy, quiet and serene. Really nothing like it! Some great designers say you should draw inspiration from what you see outside the window.  So perhaps there’s no mystery to the much simpler, natural and white Swedish Christmas decor.

It’s a magical white winter wonderland at home right now.

All that white nature right inside?

Simple natural wreath and all colors of snow right in your bedroom.

Natural wreaths and earth tones mimic the snowy trees outside.

The outdoors celebrated inside?

This is what I see for hours on the long drive from the airport to our house.

Snow and evergreens-do we really need anything else in Christmas decor?

Natural wood headboard and natural floors. The colors of ice and wood.

The Stockholm archipelago on a “slushy” snow day.

Ahh…the simplicity of it all. And much easier to decorate your home.

Do you think Swedes draw inspiration from what they see out the window?

Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there's even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?

  3. Hi there! I just wanted to ask if you ever have any problems with hackers? My last blog (wordpress) was hacked and I ended up losing a few months of hard work due to no back up. Do you have any solutions to prevent hackers?
