Linewee og Stinky Kjeks



Outside the grotto in the December snow... 

Just before flitting northwards for the most heavenly Norge kakao og fløtekrem-filled fjell-hopping oversetting month at the Tessem toadstool. This is a fairytale land where rocking chairs creak and fires crackle and fiske tastes like the sea and the mountains and wood-burning stoves...


The sun hibernated during Jule, and when he woke up, he only peeped above the mountains for a litt øyeblik each day.



When he settled back to sove for the natt, he put on his rose tinted spectacles and the sky turned pink and orange.



Line and Frank and JK gathered twigs and leaves and krem paint to weave me a little nest, and I made a sign as a homage to marihøne (ladybirds) who are much honoured in the house...


 

Utrooooolig nydelig view from my nisse nest.



Kjempe koselig...



Bits and bobs board, with treasures from some veldig hyggelig Julenisse!



Fjellehoppe med min drømmedame...



Rrrr...


We would nestle together in the evenings og drikke masse kakao and discover characters for split pin puppets and books.




Desk og duck-lys!...



Sketchbook humperdink.



Fiske lass.


Handsome caravan man...



... And a stripey-bloomered courtier...



A doorway dance...



And a wonky shouldered woodland lady.

Many more of these lads and lasses to be pinned together to animate, or become part of little book series I have in mind, or search for new homes.



The kakao kjære herself making magic at the Farmors Stue...



A temptingly tailored feller by Linewee... more of Line's creations here.

Now I am back in England and missing min dear Norske waffles, but I have with me a beloved gold- framed picture and a Gubben Pettersen portion, and I will be bouncing back in Summer for fisketuren! And maybe the Spring will bring a little Lorna with the new leaves and blossom...
