Christmas on Cloud 9

I’ve always been a huge fan of Hygge, even before I knew what hygge meant. Maybe it’s a Scandinavian ancestry or just a love of the wonders of nature, but seeing the days shorten has never bothered me as it seems to bother others. Instead of aching for the long days of summer, I turn on a million little lights, cosy up by the fire with a book and a nice glass of wine and enjoy the cosy hug of winter nights. 

When I dress Cloud 9 for the winter, I do it with that in mind. I try to bring a cosy glow to the place, inviting people in with tiny lights and gentle music. 

The gallery is doing well and will be open right up until 3 o’clock on Christmas Eve! After that time it will close and Grant and I plan to redecorate it during January. A reopening date is still to be confirmed and really depends on how quickly I recover from my impending back surgery. I can guarantee that we’ll be closed throughout January and after that I’ll let you know!

Have a very lovely Christmas, full of hygge, and a peaceful and joyful New Year!
