Year 2014 collection. “Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” John Ruskin

This winter has been very mild in south of Sweden, so mild that wild flowers are already blooming in the parks. This picture is from the only day that we actually had snow we can call snow, it was on the past Christmas day.

Knowing I come from the south of Europe Swedish often ask me; how do you like it? Is cold isn’t it? And I answer them; I spent almost 12 years in Montreal, Canada, where we have winter for 7 months. I have only complained about it during the first year but I have learnt to adapt because complaining did not made the weather better, lighter or different, only me and my inner were disturbed while the snow kept accumulating and the thermometer kept steady bellow zero. If you feel miserable do winter sports and you will actually swiftly go through it.
