I was home with a coughing Alfons today and finally got time to do some decorations in the kitchen. The advent lights should have been fixed a couple of weeks ago but, didn't have any time.
I think that maybe was meant because the ribbon I bought in Tällberg was perfect for this.
Here's a closer look at one of the candles, no 3. I made those figures several years ago and have used them every year since then but with different ribbons.
The moss is picked in the forest by our house. I like to decorate with natural elements and green moss is a perfect material.
I love those bottle brush trees, they are my etsy addiction I have to confess. The bottlebrush forest grows every year. The mini pumpkins I bought for Halloween is still in great condition so I can't throw them away.
The zinc cones got purple hyacints that fills the kitchen with a lovely scent.
Christmas is very much about filling the house with nice smells. Like baking gingerbreads. I have my own recipe (of course I have to creat the weel once again) with my own secret spices added. Thats why I baking in the same speed the family are eating them. I can tell you I filled 1,5 cans and there is only one halv left, within a few hours.
By the way; spicy cookies are good medicine for children with cough, but too many gives stomach ache.
