Advent Calendar 11, 12, 13, 14, 15
A darling old-fashioned Christmas paper doll ornament flew straight up into the Jade Tree!
Look at this: practical and useful wraps made with beautiful fabric! We especially liked the little chunk of extra beeswax and instructions for re-conditioning the cloth! The girls marched straight into the human kitchen with these waxed food wraps!!
A sweet reminder of summer, with lavender and roses – what a lovely Potpourri sachet! Tipsy, Floradora and Arianell tucked it into Mormor’s clothes press.
After an outdoor pine cone-collecting expedition, the girls were happy to sit upon this lovely grain-filled pad – like a warm beanbag chair! It can be heated in the microwave (their preference) or cooled in the freezer to provide whatever comfort is lacking.
Jane is thankful to be getting regular infusions of enormous jars of food through this advent calendar.
Thank you so much to all the Christmas Angels, we love your kindness, thoughtfulness, talent, and the fruits of your crafty labours!
I love Mormor’s clothes press, such beautiful painting and colours.
I found the clothes press in a thrift store – could not believe my eyes when I saw it. It is very much appreciated now, reminding Mormor of the folk painting from her homeland.
It’s so traditional! What a brilliant find.
Lovely and thoughtful gifts…thanks for sharing the fun.
It is such fun to find these nice things all home made, all wrapped and altogether delightful!
The girls make such good use of these fun gift ideas. Love, Love Love their Tomten hats.
They were especially delighted with the heated beanbag sofa! We will be making good use of all the little treasures! I love the Tomten hats too – even the hats seem to have personality!
Absolutely love it 😍
Thanks very much – we just love it too…such thoughtful ideas from all these crafty friends, and brought to fruition by our special Christmas Angel!
the girls, in their tomten hats, are adorable. Christmas elves!
They are feeling quite elvish – thanks to Mormor, her Swedish stories and her knitting needles!
what a bounty! I have never heard of the waxed fabric for food storage…how very clever!! Love the scrap/angel !
I agree that Mormor’s clothes press is a thing of beauty. Wonderful photos as always!!
The waxed fabric food wraps are very “in” around here. It took me a while to get used to using them, but I really like them now after a couple of years. I think we have the same roll of cling film in the drawer as we had when I started using them! Less plastic – yay!
