Design and style from a Scandinavian perspective

Two weeks 'til Advent

I don't know about the rest of the world, but here in Scandinavia we have a long run-up to Christmas, celebrating Advent every sunday in December. It's nothing big, we just light candles and perhaps have some glögg and gingerbread cookies, but it's very cozy. And I just realized today that it's only two weeks until the first Advent sunday. So perhaps it's time to start posting some Christmas inspiration? I'm starting softly with these pictures by German photographer Gudrun Arndt. Enjoy!

    Fint papperspynt! Det är nog så att vi väntar och längtar extra länga här i mörka Sverige. Vi har ju inte så mycket på hösten annars... som Halloween och Thanksgiving som är stort i USA.

    Hi Emma

    Can you do a DIY post on making awesome holiday decorations? For instance, I would love to know how to make the stars in the top photo :)

    Svar: I'm not much of a DIY person really, so I have no idea how to make those stars. But I'm sure you could google it and find some great tutorials. :)

    Fina bilder! Som man längtar nu tills alla adventsstjärnor och ljusstakar dyker upp i alla fönster. Även om det är återkommande varje år så är det ändå något extra varje gång!
