We observe this too & last night, the children put out their boots for St Nikolaus to fill.


We too will be lighting our second advent candle today. Is the previous photo of your Christmas tree Tracy? Did you put one up this year?

We stayed home this weekend to try and put put our tree. So far we only have the tree up. DH decided to rest and that meant not a step farther. No lights or decorations. :-) I decorated the hallway. It is now a festive welcome to those who come to visit us.

Hugs and happy Sunday ~


candles add so much elegance and charm to any celebration. have a great day, tracy.


Charming, serene and inspiring as always, my friend. I experience peacefulness vicariously through your blog these days!

Happy Sunday to you and Terje! :)

We had St Nick's Night on the 6th so as we had Hungarian guests we all got choc coins, and a choc santa. :-)


Beautiful. That sounds like a very good idea to me Tracy. I hope you have a wonderful week ahead. One filled with many last minute Christmas rush etsy shop sales :)

I love candles and these two look lovely. I hope all your preparations are going well. I've just been over to the shop and bought a little something for my mother in law. Thank you Tracy for all you share through this blog and A Certain Slant of Light.

Hi Tracy! The craft-making party must had been very fun, where all 3 generations gather just to make things! And so glad to hear that you're heading to the US for the holidays. Enjoy all the busy-ness but don't tire yourself, okay? ((hugs))


Beautiful picture! I wish you lots of both. And have a great trip back here to the US! ; )
