handmade: Advent wreath

Hello lovely ladies and thanks for the nice comments about the christmas stall! 

The first weekend has been a success. At least that's what I'm told. As this stall is my man's project I'm actually not really involved with it. I just provided the decoration! ;) 

While he stood in the booth in the cold, I spend the weekend at home with my parents. Only 25 days until the premiere of our play this year!!! That's really soon! So we had two rehearsals on the weekend. Other than practicing my role as an arrogant carreer-driven fashion journalist (this is the opposite of me in SO many ways but that's what makes it all the more fun!) I used the time with my mum to make an advent wreath.

I always helped my mum making it and when I moved in with my man more than one year ago, I started to make my own. So this is the second wreath that I made all by myself and all for myself. It's now standing on the kitchen table, taking up the little space we have and making my home more christmassy and cosy.

I really love it, it makes me happy, everytime I look at it! 

Other than that I enjoy my evenings at home. The man works in the christmas stall so when I come home from work the appartment is empty. And can I be honest? I LOVE IT! Of course I miss my man and yes, I am happy to see him when he gets home, but I really cherish those two or three hours that I have every evening to myself! I come home and usually enjoy a long shower before I cuddle up on the couch with a crochet wip (currently the top for my mom. I REALLY need to finish that!), a cup of tea and some chocolate and watch ALL seasons of the Gilmore Girls again. I really love that series. My man isn't really a fan and IF he watches them he wants to watch in German as his english isn't that good. And I hate to watch the translated version. So I can watch it the way I want it, without anyone nagging next to me. Got to enjoy the little things in life!

  1. Wonderful wreath! We don t have one this year since we will spent some time abroad in advent. ��

    Take care

  2. Thanks! I loved making it! The smell of the twigs is soooo divine!!
    We won't be here on Christmas so we won't have a Christmas tree. At least we have the wreath!

  3. So pretty! I bet it smells wonderful :) I know exactly what you mean about a little space to indulge in tv of your own choice ;)

    1. First season of Gilmore Girls is nearly finished! ;)

  4. I love your Advent wreath so much. It is very beautiful.

    We are in our sixth winter in South Texas. So it is very sunny and warm. I do miss the winters of my home state of Ohio. The warm weather makes the Christmas decorations seem out of place.

    God Bless and have a Merry Christmas

    1. Oh thanks, we really love it, too!

      I spend a Christmas on the Philippines once and it was so strange. To me, Christmas equals snow and winter and cold. It somehow felt wrong to be lying at a beach in a bikini! ;)

      Merry Christmas to you too! :)
