December 23rd

My wonderful mother-in-law gave us a new Christmas china, and it's about to get it's first party tonight! I have used our red-taika tableware in previous Christmases, but as we use the mugs every day, it's not the most festive choice. And now I have my very own special china for Christmases to come, I love it! 

My new precious china has little elves on it, and some pretty branches with little glitter... It's dark here already but with my plates shimmer... And tree is in, the scent is divine, and the Christmas-decoration boxes are out too. Welcome all baubles, snowmen, old and new elves, bunnies, stars and hearts...

...You'll see it on its glory tomorrow! Now I am off to enjoy this special night, lovely 4th Advent to you all!

On kyllä todella suloiset! Taas huomasin että olin missannut sun arvonnan. :(
En oo ehtinyt käydä kunnolla netissä pitkään aikaan lueskelemassa blogeja ja näin sitten käy.

Mutta, ihanaa, tunnelmallista ja rakkaudentäyteistä joulua ihanalle Mialle!! ♥♥♥♥♥

Oh my what gorgeous china Mia, you are a lucky girl. It is such a beautiful shape and I love the little image on it. :)
So all the Advent candles are now lit, it never ceases to amaze the speed of time!
Two days to go, just nine till pre-spring! ;)

Hi Mia,

LOVE the tonttu themed china.
Enjoy your family time this Christmas,
Happy Sunday to all,


Mia said...

Thank you, Teje!

I love them too! And I LOVE the idea of having a special Christmas-china (if you have a space to keep the extra set, mine is fot 6 and it takes SOME space in cupboard but it's so worth it!).

Have a happy aatto-ilta!

Heipsan Nova,

Ja ihanaa Jouluaattoa! No voi hitsi, taas mennä suhahti arvonta (mutta olikin sellainen nopea juttu vaan), mutta älä huoli, kyllä niitä tulla tupsahtelee pian taas!

Nautiskelkaahan pyhistä, ja valkoisesta joulusta (toivoakseni?)!

Terkuin Mia
