Gift wrap and lingon

 Click image to enlarge!
Gift wrap!
This card is created from a very old Christmas card My grandmother recieved. 
I have her postcard album in my possestion. 

You guys love food so here is Lingon that I was cooking the other day. The white is ice as the berries was not completely thawed when I took the photo

Winter fun!

It is cold outside. Rather strange really, first time in many years we have this much snow and cold in many years. It usually starts in January when kids go back to school.  This year they will be able to both ski and skate during the holidays, hopefully!

  1. Oh ligon berries are yummy when made into jam or sauce. I like what you did with the photo. And that old card is lovely and when I first saw it, I thought old. I'm not sure if it's the coloring or the style that made me think that, but I definitely thought of my grandmother-which was nice.

  2. Beautiful gift wrap and the other pieces are lovely.

  3. Nice wrappings and that red is fabulous!!!! Have a very nice day today.

  4. Very artistic Lingon ... I am guessing it is Lingonberries, but not sure what you have created with them ... have a recipe to share? Yes, this year has been very cold with huge snow storms early in the season. Unfortunately we didn't get them where I live ... I love the snow and would love to be building snowmen or skating (I may be too old for that, as a fall on the ice might be a problem), but all along the northern states they have had 2 to 4 feet of snow already. And, I agree, the younger generation is probably loving it :) Hope you are staying warm and safe ...

  5. yes it is Lingonberries. It is easy, I just cook them with a little suger. If they are very dry I ad a little water so they shall not be burned. Just ad suger to them and let it melt down to a jam. You can save it in cans for many years without being destroyed. You don't even need preservatives. It is found naturally in the lingonberry.
    In the past, lingonberries were the vegetables you had all year round because there were no tomatoes or anything else all year round then. And they are very nutritious.
