My daughter and son-in-law recently
returned from a wonderful trip to Denmark.
Everywhere they went, they saw long
white taper candles in simple holders.
Whether on restaurant tables,
in store front windows, or in the windows
of private homes, they saw these candles.
As a gift and reminder of their trip they bought each
family member their own taper,
holder, and card wishing the "hygge" life for us.
Hygge (hue-gah) is the Danish ritual
of enjoying the simple pleasures of life
(a sentiment I'm all about embracing).
As a thank you, I made them
this mixed media post card.
I used acrylic paint, collage papers,
stamps, ink, fabric paint, and little plastic "jewels".
Hopefully this small
gesture will add to the hygge
of their lives.
