First Sunday In Advent


And so the Christmas season begins...



 I made a little Advent display using an old enamel bundt pan.



Keeping it simple.


Using what I have on hand.




I just love my old enamelware!


 May your holidays be peaceful and calm...

... full of joy and just the right amount of fun!


Thank you for all your comments on the new look of the blog.

Hope the week ahead brings all good things to you!

Oh Laura~ this is pure beauty!! I love the tones in these photos! I really like how the pinecones & nuts appear "frosty" - like kissed by an early frost.

You have made a beautiful advent-arrangement!
Today it has been snowing the whole day - it´s white outside and it feels like christmas.
Wish you a nice week.

Beautiful pictures. You warmed my heart by spotlighting the white enamelware. I have quite a collection of white enamelware and it seems to have dropped from favor somewhat in recent years. I'm always looking for signs of its resurgence.

This is so simple and beautiful. I just love how you used the bundt pan. I always prefer natural elements for my advent display or wreath. Just lovely, Laura.
