{Christmas} Nativity "in your hands"

when you love it so much, you just want to "hold it" in your hands all the time!

My little niece loves a pair of gloves I gave her some years ago with cute faces on her fingers. Now, the years have passed but she could care less about her hands getting bigger and those gloves getting smaller. She's still wearing them. I've looked around but I just couldn't find some new once for her, until this pair here. And fact is I love the nativity. This could be a cute one for the little one.

Nativity Puppet Glove Set you can find it here for purchase on Deseret book.

I'm feeling cozy

must be the first snow falling, the fire craking on my back, the candle lights and smell of tangerins..
all I want is to wrap me up with a nice white soft blanket :)

Advent Calendar 2009

This year despite all my plans to do and make things for people I'm ending up doing nothing. But Thank goodness for friends.. Yep THANK YOU!
Cause when it comes to hard times, the good friends are the one that make a difference :)

My advent Calendar this year is a beautiful one made by my dear friend Cathrin, love u girl!

Some of the messages I found in my advent calendar:

" a little boy is crying on his knotty chair.. and he tells his mother.. "
"if you're raising me right, how come I get into SO much trouble??.." :)
{Dennis The Menace by Ketcham}

"Love is what's in a room with you at Christmas,if you stop opening presents and listen."
{Bobby- age7} WOW!

The purpose of the contest was to find the most caring child.
The winner was a four year old child whose next door neighbor was an elderly gentleman who had recently lost his wife.
Upon seeing the man cry, the little boy went into the old gentleman's yard, climbed onto his lap, and just sat there.
When his mother asked what he had said to the neighbor, the little boy said:
"Nothing, I just helped him cry."

"Love is like a little old woman and little old man who are still friends
even after they know each other so well."
{Tommy- age 6}

Vintage Advent Calendars

If you are a sentimental like me, you probably find that the things that remind you of your childhood keep popping out of your memories and bring a special magic especially now around Christmas.
Who knows, maybe I'm talking only about myself, but Christmas is definitely the time where my taste go in direct semblance of my childhood.
And maybe that's why I still think that the old kinds of Advent Calendar are the best. You know? The one with those beautiful drawings. No chocolate, no candies, just beautiful drawings that give you the chance to dream a little more..
Ok I need to show you some of them:

The past years I've found a little shop in Winterthur-Zurich, Switzerland, where they sell them. Oh I started making a little collection for my future kids. I know crazy, I know.. Never done it before but I was afraid that by the time I'll have kids, I won't find this beautiful pieces anymore.

But maybe I was wrong cause they are still around and here is a place I found online where they sell them in the States. GREAT! Granted not all of them are the same style, so you have to look for the good once. Take a look at  

and happy old memories!

here and away

Away for a while, I might not be around much, but soon I'll be back.. in few months.

For now happy Advent Everyone!
