Advent calendar 21

As I rush around to get ready for Christmas, I feel myself losing sight of what Christmas is all about. It may mean different things for different people, of course, but last night, I felt that PEACE is indeed a message I would like to add to my calendar here. 

So, slumped in the sofa after a long day yesterday, my therapeutic activity for the evening was shaping a piece of metal wire into a peace sign and then cover it in twine. A nice decoration perhaps for a bottle to give away, for the Christmas tree as alternative baubles, or even as a necklace for yourself...!  Smileys

This morning I "dressed" a candle with the same message, by warming a teaspoon over the cooker and then pressing the warm spoon gently onto a cut out paper peace sign held in place by my other hand on the candle. As the was melts a little under the warm spoon, the peace sign is "glued" onto the candle. 

So, dear readers, with only a few days to go to Christmas, 
may peace be with you on your path, wherever you are!


  1. Vilken fin symboli dessa tider!
    Frid och fred till dej också!

  2. I hate that the CND symbol has been hijacked for the peace symbol. When my husband is away this Christmas serving on a nuclear submarine I really find it quite offensive. Sorry!

    1. I am sorry, I never meant to offend anyone with this blog post. Not being British myself, my association was indeed not the CND, only "peace".

      Kind regards,

    2. Dear Helena...

      Much peace for you too.
      Love your blog.



  3. En god tanke som passar jämt, inte minst i jultider. Ljuset blev så fint!
    God Jul och Gott Nytt År!
