Somehow I’ve been so busy doing all sorts of things that I just didn’t have the time to do some blogging!!But being back again and checking all you dear blogging people I see I’ve been missing a lot.What a cheerful Christmas spirit there is in a lot of houses.What jolly things people make and say.yes it’s good to be back!!I’ve done some Christmas decorating my self , so here it is.
Made some angels for the Christmas tree.It’s a dilemma every year(that is to say,it’s one for me)because I like a white and grey decorated tree (Jeanne D’arc style) but the kids and husband like lots of jolly red.I honestly like red as well and we ,years ago had a white decorated tree,that only I liked, after some days I kind of missed a bit of color so added some red to it.That instantly looked a lot brighter.I like the Scandinavian style of decorating , you see that in just white and jolly red and white.So this year a mix of both!!
The kitchen wall cabinet in jolly red style!The Santa’s I made a very long time ago .They are cross-stitched front and back and sewed on fabric.They are our egg-warmers.
The Hema sold a lot of Scandinavian Christmas items last year.Like these candles and coffee cups and bowls.
Found some great ribbons and rope on the Christmas Fair in Haarzuilens.
A glimpse into the living-room.At the front a jolly red pixie.The original pixie’s ,made by Maileg are so very nice but not cheap so I made this one my self,It’s an Adventcalender.In every pocket you can put a tiny present.
The Christmas tree !
And there is also an angel of Joy.
Old Bon Maman creme brulee jars I found second hand.Decorated with ‘follow your dreams’ ribbon.Let that be your goal for the new year!
Red and white presents under the tree.First pic. presents at front are from Noords (Santa told me).A very Scandinavian ‘web but also showroom’ shop in my neighborhood.
The living-room.I have a new thing in my living-room.My father made a long shelf above the windows.I placed my collection of pineapples on it and a garland.
Nature has chosen for white this morning….
So far my Christmas preparations, will keep you informed!
Enjoy these ,also, special days towards Christmas day!!
Guess what, I found a Christmas card with my dear Jackie on it !!!
Lots of greetings from me and hope to see you next time.
Antoinette from Twaatjes diary thanks for your kind words as you can see I’m back again !!
