The kids couldn't wait any longer. Since we don't have a Christmas tree yet, they hung the decorations all around the house...
On independence day we'll get a real tree! A tiny one for the kids, one they can choose themselves and decorate as they like, and a big real tree for me.
Ok, I confess, I'm probably even more excited about it than the kids...
This deep burgundy velvet heart with pearl decorations is one of my favorites. I used to buy Stockmann's Christmas decorations and travel all around the world scouting for new ideas. This hand decorated beauty I found from India.
In fact, I always spent a month or so in India and the Far East at this time of the year, choosing decorations for the following
year. And I remember calling home to ask who'd had the prettiest dress on independence day... A real Finn, even when far away :)
Oh I miss those trips... All the adventure...
Will tell you about some of those, another time.
Now it's BuonaNotte, tutti...♥.
