three more days

... of waiting, baking, making, nibbling, wrapping, decorating, reading, playing ...

 
 
 









 I've decided not to have a traditional yule tree this year. Instead we brought in some branches from a cut down tree and put them in a jug. Wrapped it all with some crochet pieces and laces, all of wich I inherited from my maternal grandmother. Decorated it with wool, straw, birch bark and all things natural. Mostly gifts from Nissen.

 
 We've added Peppermint Bark to our favourite seasonal sweets - as have most of the blogging world, I expect - and no wonder! But the cookies with orange rind and hazelnuts are exceptional too.

 


A gift in the making, but perhaps you can guess what it is ...

.:Wish you all a lovely, magical and peaceful yule:.
