Hello and welcome to my blog, nice to have you here!
Unbelievable - the year is coming to it´s end soon (well, not that I want it to be longer anyway). It´s the first of December already.
Here is the final challenge of this year over at Country View Challenges, and it´s an "Anything goes Christmas".
Last sunday was the first Advent, and I decided to share with you my home made Advent wreath.
The last years I didn´t have a wreath, I went for some other solutions - a big piece of bark I decorated, a plate, I only draped some greenery and baubles with candles - or even nothing at all (shame).
This year I wanted to make a wreath once again, so I went to the gardening in our village and got myself some greenery, a straw wreath and everything I needed. At the dollar store I got some cheap mini baubles and the candles (which doesn´t look cheap at all!), the turquoise ribbon, the turquoise baubles, which are gorgeous and the silver pinecones. They bueish/greenish stars are also from there.
One tradition I have for many years now is to buy one special bauble for my christmas tree every year. Either I buy it on a advent market or at our stationary store in our village. The owner always has really special and extraordinary christmas decorations. They are a little bit pricy, but they are worth it.
So I went to the stationary store I bought some special baubles (the silver ones).
I went to my christmas box and found some silvery apples, wooden glitter stars and angels hair. The silver greenery I got from the gardening.
