It’s the Season of Advent


Today marks the beginning of the season of Advent. I lighted the first candle in my self crafted modern interpretation of an Advent wreath and also in my other playful Advent wreath I showed you earlier this week (click here) I created a special nook for my Advent celebration. The textile with musical notes is from Ikea’s Christmas collection, the framed poster is from Tierlantijn, and the porcelain votive is from Feinedinge.

Today, after church, I’m going on a tree hunt. It’s so much fun to find the perfect tree amongst all the different types and sizes at the garden center. I absolutely love the smell and the entire experience of walking around, finding new baubles and ornaments. Enjoy your Advent Sunday!
