There were still bits of snow then!
Baubles! All these colours are not exactly my cup of tea but still quite pretty.
Cute, handmade sheep.
And a very pretty Christmas tree.
And there were wreaths, too.
And my little sister.
The picture doesn’t do it justice but this was one of the most beautiful advent wreaths I’ve ever seen.
The Christmas tree in a nearby shopping centre.
I loved their winter decorations.
It’s the most wonderful time of the year. I hope you all can make some time to properly enjoy it!
Weeping. That statue is weeping.
What a marvellous idea!
She was an actress. I love the writing on her tombstone.
Just to drive it home.
Why not. Why the hell not.
Possibly the tiniest grave ever.
I’d love to see what this place looks like covered in fog. Perhaps next time.
I have just wrapped my Christmas first present. Tomorrow I am seeing one of my closest friends and since we’re definitely not going to meet again in person for heaven knows how long, we are going to have a merry little Christmas this weekend. I’m terribly excited.
It feels like I’m posting these every other day. This was Regent Street, Christmas 2012.
Have you started getting ready for Christmas yet?
We call these St. Martin’s horseshoes. The saying ‘St. Martin comes riding on a white horse’ is the embodiment of winter and it is often said that if it snows on the 11th it will snow on Christmas Day as well. Well, we had no snow but it was cold enough so maybe there’s hope.
And since I’m posting about food: a couple of weeks ago I made apple purée pancakes with maple syrup and bacon. They were as delicious as they look.
