Christmas in every corner

Now we are ready for Christmas, almost every corner of the house is decorated, the trees (we got 3 this year yes, a bit climate shame I know) are done and candles can be lit all over the house. I bought this candle holder last time we went home to Stockholm a couple of weeks before Alva’s first Christmas. It means so much too me, not only the heritage of Swedish traditions but mostly for all the memories attached to that trip. I collect those. The memories.

I always chose red amaryllis but this year I went for white, as beautiful.

The same day we were about to decorate the tree the lamps I ordered came! Until now we had “french” lamps in our tree, a garland of tiny lamps but this year we’re back to Scandinavian style and bigger but fewer lamps just like my childhood’s tree.
