Christmas emerging







Christmas happening around our home happens to be my favorite activity the of year. I love taking the kitchen chair and reaching high up into the passage cupboard to hall out the dusty boxes I last saw almost a year ago. Its a bit surprising in itself seeing what we have collected. This year is a Maileg and Greengate Special. I have always since young been fascinated with the the vision of quaint village toy shops. This I am sure brought about by beautiful books I have read through the years and our trip to Germany. My kitchen spot, where I change this area like the wind changes, has become home to our little village shop window. We have already started playing our Christmas music. Brogan has produced 3 delicious Christmas Fruit cakes. Our real Christmas tree didn't make it into the house this year. Its grown too big! One thing I wish we had here in South Africa is being able to choose a real Christmas tree from a tree farm. We now have this gorgeous grand old lady tree standing in the entrance hall.

I hope your homes are beginning to feel a little cozier with the smells that come with this time of year.

A happy day to you~

Such a great advent calendar! Did you use a pattern or just free-hand it???

Susan said...

Your home is so inviting, cozy, loving, and beautifully decorated for every season.
I fly home tomorrow and can't wait to start fixing our home for "the King's" visit. Love to you all, dear friend, XOXO

Thank you very much ~

Some years I have used everything handmade and simple. That could look just as beautiful. The advent calendar is a sale purchase. I had to scratch for it but it really does look simple to make...

I hope all your homes are basking in this Seasons glory. i wish sometimes to have a white Christmas. How lucky you all are..

Happy day to you
