A light for joy - Advent time


I have spent the first weekend of Advent in Amsterdam, The Netherlands, with my husband and a group of friends.
We arrived home yesterday afternoon, in time to light the first Advent candle before dropping in a deep chair with our feet up.


I also have 2 Advent calendars to enjoy this year - one from May Britt and one from Bente.


From May Britt I got these cute buttons,


and from Bente, the Lucky Troll and a packet of colour catchers, which I have already put in to use :-)


Over the weekend this cute little packet has arrived too - an Advent gift from Stina - how very exciting :-)
The packet was so beautifully packet it was hard to open it!


Look what was in the packet - the cutest little stitchery, with red embroidery floss, ready to be made, and it is part 1 of a Christmas mystery :-)
Lucky me !! Thank you ever so much Stina!
I am so looking forward to enjoy this lovely stitchery, starting tomorrow morning, with my morning coffee :-)


Tonight we light one candle
we light it for joy
It stands there shining by itself
and we who present are
Tonight we light one candle
we light it for joy.
