Although it's only the beginning of December (and according to the Dutch traditions - St. Nicolas on December 6 - you're not supposed to even think about Christmas until after the 6th) I couldn't resist starting to decorate for Christmas. I added some touches of Noël and even bought a tree, a real tree. Why? Because it's been 8 (EIGHT!!) years since we had a real Christmas tree, that's why!!
A real Christmas tree doesn't exist in Brazil and the only little bush they sell there as a Christmas tree can't even handle one ball!
So, a real tree it is this year!
Sweet little Angels, made out of recycled cans and some made of dried corn leaves (bought in Brazil, they're pretty inventive & crafty there!) and some feathered balls and wooden birds, hearts & stars.
Some little balls with candlelight atmosphere...
And a glimpse of the tree, decorations in red & white this year!
Have a wonderful week & enjoy this sweet time of the year!!
