paper chandeliers

Final Christmas market post (still open, until Wednesday in the Konstepidemin Blue House).

Kerstin Åsling makes the most beautiful paper chandeliers. In Swedish they are called "oro", the word for not being at peace. I think it's from them moving slightly in the tiniest breeze, being easily worried by it, but I don't know.

Instructions for making a paper star. Or if you like this better.
Miniature stars. Many more origami instructions.

Bread and other tasty things from the Blue House restaurant.

Gudrun Åsling's moss garland.

Per Agelii wooden birds.

Something completely different, far from Christmas idyll:
Platina jewellery gallery in Stockholm show work by Jenny Edlund "Libido", amazing photos by Morgan Norman. Opens Dec 6. Jenny Edlund beautiful "hollowware".

Tired of the hand made? Paris Parfait posts extravaganza and glamour; Christmas decorated Paris shop windows, oh la la...
