Pastels from Etsy

These soft blue pastels fit my winter-mood quite well.

Cakestand DIY

Look, I found also a cute cakestand tutorial: Kira shares on her blog Tangarang how she made them out of vintage plates, candlesticks and vases.

Mia Rosa: Cakestands

I hope you all had a good start into the new year? I'm still very busy with some school work. But in between I try to relax and find some inspiration in my daily life. I've enjoyed some wonderful winter-weather we have had here. It has been very cold and snowy. We also had visitors, lovely relatives from Finland. :)

Friendship and also simply the winterweather can be so inspiring.
And what is better on a cold winter day than meeting a friend, talking and having some tea and cookies? If only the day had more hours, so that I could do that more often...
Today I'm looking at these beautiful cakestands instead and thinking of chocolate treats to fill them with. They are handmade out of second-hand plates by Swedish blogger Mia, available in her online shop Mia Rosa.
