Because of the weather, we spend the first Advent sunday indoors. Our kids went to a birthday party, so it was a quiet day. I wanted to start to get slowly prepared for the Christmas time. I bough two little christmas trees and set the fire on the first of the four advent candle. In Holland they don't really pay attention to advent-sundays, but this tradition to burn the candles we have in Finland and also in Germany.
The window looked like in the picture above this morning, but now it is a little bit different atmosphere after a few decoration tricks.
I miss the snow. I had to create a fake snow for my little trees by the window. I wrapped them with a wintery looking material. Trying to get on winter-modus.
I was also cutting some tree looking forms from the paper to make my own advent forest. I do these trees in almost every winter using old magazines. It is funny how I want to bring the forest inside the house. Just some own rituals to make a rainy season more cosy.
Now off to stormy dreams!
