Holiday mood

During the past several weeks I’ve been spending a lot of time creating Christmas wreaths. Holiday mood has hit me early this year, indeed! We haven’t put up the Christmas tree yet but I did start decorating around the house already. I truly like the simple outdoor window sill decoration I made with small tree branches, mini glass bulb ornaments and cotton wool (1st photo).

I brought some bush branches from a walk by the river close to our home and arranged them in a tall vase that I borrowed from my grandma. I decorated the branches with dried orange slices (recycled from previous Christmases) and cotton wool. I put a small LED light chain around the vase and our corridor now has a lovely, natural decoration (2nd photo).

The aforementioned wreaths you can see on the photos below. Two of them were particularly time-consuming (you can totally guess which ones) and I’m really proud of them. Let’s just say I won’t be buying/making/eating any popcorn for a while and also, I’ve stashed all my wool yarn supply somewhere where I’m not likely to stumble upon it anytime soon. Ahem. The good thing is, these wreaths are going to last for many years to come and they really are all beautiful in their way. I hope you like them, too!

And now it’s high time I start preparing Christmas goodies! I’ve already made a batch of chocolate hazelnut balls which are sooo popular with our family and friends. Polvorones and mazapanes are on my list, too… as well as many other favorites (snickerdoodles? Truffles?? Mmmm!).

Have a nice weekend, folks! 🙂
