December 23rd

**Welcome to my little Christmas blog! Here you'll find something Christmassy every single day until the big celebration on 25th of December! Some of the things I have created myself and some have been made by you, my dearest readers!
Thank you and the Happiest Holidays!**


It's the time, dear friends! Time to enjoy! Enjoy the scents of hyacinth and gingerbread, and taste of chocolate and peppermint! It's time to enjoy the beautiful, fun and colorful, new and traditional. It's time to give, share and love. It's really all around us, and I wish you
the best December 23rd

with the words of adorable Billy Mack:

"I feel it in my fingers,
I feel it in my toes,
Christmas is all around me,
And so the feeling grows

It's written in the wind,
It's everywhere I go,
So if you really love Christmas,
C'mon and let it snow?"


P.S. I hope you'll enjoy these little Christmas-corners of our house too!

Lovely pictures, Mia! They are all gorgeous - and I specially liked the little stripy pig and the taaall red hat on the little dog! I've been humming those words lately too - because Christmas Is All Aound Us now isn't it?? It's time to watch that movie again,I think. Have a wonderful day.

Thank you, Viv!

The little dog (he's called Rufus) has had his festive hat (that very same with pom pom) for...almost ten years now? Every year as the chubby Obelix too. Silly yet loved little traditions :)

Happy and love-filled day!

Love that little dog with his Christmas hat. The boys have bought the cats Christmas hats and frilly collars this year - I'm sure they will hate wearing them. Karen X

Mia said...

Hi Karen,

And Merry Christmas!
Happy times with boys and many greetings from Finland!


This time of the year...

Usually around this time, when children go back to school, and you can just about to smell the autumn, I start to dig deeper in my fabric...
