2nd of Advent


Last night was the 2nd of Advent, so the countdown continues to Christmas.  Only 3 more Sundays until the big day.  Wow!  That’s not long and I have hardly started buying presents and need to start writing out a big list of everything that I need to organise or else it will get too overwhelming.  This week I’m going to start on some of yummy foods I like to make at Christmas time, such as gingerbreads, toffees, daim, and closer to St Lucia (13th Dec) saffron breads.  I’ll keep you posted!


All I Want For Christmas Is You

I love the little things around Christmas.  A cute little Pixie, an old candle holder, little Santas placed around the house, fairy lights.  Like this two candle holders.  The one above in gold says ”All I Want For Christmas Is You”.  I bought this one from LARK last Christmas and I love it, they still sell it – only $8.95 –  you can find it here.  The candle holder in the photo below is an old one from Sweden that I adore.  The little Pixie sitting underneath the candle is just too cute.  Next to it is one of my many Maileg pixie dolls that I have collected over the years.
