Creamation, uh.. I mean cream with your coffee?

I live next to a graveyard that is also a World Heritage Site for it’s architecture and placement in a forest. It’s a nice place to walk around. Greta Garbo even has a gravestone there.

Today I had an ad show up to let me know that I can tour the architecture with a guide when I visit the graveyard, or I can even have a snack in their nice cafe.

It’s a graveyard.

Not a church.

A graveyard.

And people go there to chat over cinammon buns and coffee surrounded by gravestones.

It just seems rude to eat and drink in front of people who can’t.

(Actual photo from the ad… these gals look pretty happy. They must have been to a funeral for someone they didn’t like.)

Gingerbread contest

Every year at the Architecture Museum in Stockhom, they hold a gingerbread house making contest during the month of December. There are different categories for professionals, teams, and amateurs. Each year has a theme (this year’s was “luxury”), and everyone votes on the best in each category.

I took the kids to see the entries. Here are a few:

This inspired us to go home and make our own “luxury” gingerbread house. Here is the result of our efforts:

Gingerbread house and hot tub

Bob comes home from his job at the bank to find his wife Barbara in the hot tub. Notice that the hot tub is almost the same size as the house. Also, their house is made of gingerbread. Luxury!

 

 

My kind of gingerbread house

Every year, they have a gingerbread house building competition at the architecture museum. This was my favorite entry. Hey, just because you accidently burn your house, that’s no reason to drop out of the contest! Work with it!
