Summary Christmas Decoration

As much as I love this warm temperature we are having at the moment, I still struggle with the concept of a southern hemisphere Christmas. I miss the cozy atmosphere around this time of year in Germany - the smell of baking, candles and snow.

This year I combine my traditional decoration with some beachy elements. The boys and I collected driftwood and turned it into stars and a small tree.  
 I loved filling the advent calendar bags this year. The temptation of peeking was just too much for my little one though so I ended up taking them down and putting them all in a basket - out of little hand's reach.
I hope you all have a lovely time leading up to Christmas. It will be very quiet around here as we are waiting for the baby to arrive early in the New Year.

How lovely to see your driftwood creations and Advent bags. I need little boys to visit and open the wee drawers in my Advent train! xxxx

liebe nina, sehr schöne feine deko!
der baum aus treibholz ist besonders toll!
eigentlich bin ich froh, dass unsere kinder schon so groß sind,
aber die advents-und weihnachtszeit ist mit kleinen kindern doch besonders zauberhaft!
mit basteln, backen und allen geheimnissen...
genieß es, ebenso die ruhe vor dem "baby*sturm"... :)
viele grüße aus dem wieder grau getauten germany, dornrös*chen.
