Happy Advent! ♥ Hyvää adventin aikaa! ♥ Buon Avvento! ♥ Glad adventstid!















Three weeks until Christmas Eve! We are all busy, I guess, but I hope we can also find time to slow down every now and then. Getting older, one understands that it's the simple things that make the season bright and fill us and our loved ones with the joy and wonder of Christmas. :)






As always, thank you very much for your lovely comments. I will be away from the keyboard for the next few days... and yet I'll try finally to fulfil my longtime dream of a Christmas calendar. Not on the blog though: you can find it on my Instagram account, and because it starts today, it's really an Advent calendar. :) I will post the images also here, but not every day.






Kolme viikkoa jouluaattoon ja kiirettä pitää... ei oikeastaan joulun valmisteluissa vaan muuten. Kiitos kaikille kommenteistanne. Vastailen niihin nyt aika hitaasti. Oi oi, blogilistallani näen vaikka mitä mielenkiintoisia postauksianne... koetan tulla vierailulle pian!

Olen jo monena vuonna suunnitellut blogiin joulukalenteria, mutta tänäkään vuonna ei siihen ole riittävästi aikaa. Sen sijaan Instagram-tililläni koetan postata jouluisen kuvan joka päivä aattoon asti. Julkaisen kuvat täälläkin, mutta en päivittäin. Mietin pitkään väriteemaa kuville. Valkoinen joulu? Punainen joulu? Kultainen joulu?... :)






Hyvää ja rauhallista adventtiaikaa!

  7. Yes, this time of year is very busy but on your photos you show us your figure skates. My heart opens for figure skating and I please hope we get enough frost this season for skating outdoors. Nevertheless I have already been to the skating rink and I'm still going strong even though I'm (too) old.

  8. Who can even believe that it is a mere three weeks until Christmas? So far here the weather has been very mild and it hardly seems that we could be so close. I am wondering whether we will have snow for Christmas.
