Advent calendar 7
Being a big fan of word play, the obvious title for today's calendar flap ought to be "It's a wrap!", but I suppose I risk losing readers over my bad sense of humour, so perhaps I should just get on with telling you what it is all about...
On my beloved dolly tub (which I made into a table with some leftover floorboards a few years ago) you may spot two little Christmas presents, wrapped and ready for the large man with silver beard and a ho-ho-ho laughter to put in his sack and keep safe until the 24th (yes, according to Swedish tradition, we open our gifts on Christmas Eve).
Two music-packed gifts wrapped in two normal A4 sheets onto which I have copied two of my dresses (!). The one to the right you will most certainly recognise by now, and the one to the left is one of my favourite dresses, whose colours are not at all as dark brown as they turned out in my printer (it is more of an olive green, but I think I am running out of coloured ink!), but which I thought looked rather stylish anyway, albeit somewhat dark. A few of my salt dough stars from the other day's "baking session" and voilà, two presents with a personal touch!
Thank you so much for all your kind comments here on my blog. I am sorry that I am still so invisible on yours. Wishing you all the best for your Christmas preparations, or whatever December holds for you!
