Last year I made an Advent calendar, which I still like very much.
For this year I had planned to do the same, but unfortunately I remembered too late to see how to do it practically with Photoshop. Above all I did not consider how time-consuming my idea was. Too bad.
I won’t write what I wanted to do now (maybe I’ll like the idea for next year), but for next time I have to remember to to start earlier.
The last two weeks I was in bed with severe flu. Therefore I could not go shopping or decorate my apartment properly. Too bad, because I didn’t have time to take care of it before. I didn’t even get a tree this year. Didn’t feel good enough to go outside.
But look what the mail brought in yesterday ❤ ❤ ❤
Normally I would have hung the ornaments on the tree, but so I just photographed it as if it was a breakfast table.
The plate is only a little bit bigger than 2 inch. This “doll’s dishes” looks exactly like my real Christmas dishes. Isn’t it cute?
Today again a picture from my Christmas porcelain collection.
This year the small ornaments were added. One is hanging on the tree, two I placed next to their big originals for the photo. I find them so cute ❤ ❤ ❤
ויהי בימים ההם ותצא דת מאת הקיסר אוגוסטוס לספר את כל ישבי תבל׃
Today I come with Hebrew.
When I was a very little girl, I got a huge doll for Christmas. The doll was almost as big as me. She had lots of clothes and I loved to play with her.
I remember that my Mum brought this doll back to the attic after 4 weeks and next Christmas it was under the Christmas tree again. That happened for a few years.
I completely forgot until I found the doll in my photo on the internet. I don’t even know what happened to the big doll that looked exactly like the one I bought last year. Only my new one is smaller. I only remember that the doll belonged to my mum before.
For nostalgic reasons I bought this doll girl and also a boy. It is not for playing because it is very old and fragile. But every time I see this doll, I remember Christmas in my childhood ❤ ❤ ❤
It amazes me every day how many languages the Bible can be found in. Is there a language in the world in which one has not translated the Bible?
I am glad that I can find my favorite passage in the Bible in so many languages.
Christmas is coming so fast now that every day you think of something new to do.
Today the Christmas Gospel in Chinese.
I hope I can find enough other translations because it is difficult to find new ones.
These cookie jars remind me of the ones my mother always had. I found them in a shop last year and had to have them.
We children always baked cookies together with her and at the end all cookies came in in cans like this. So the cookies were protected from drying out and it looked beautiful.
My challenge: One year - I will not buy clothes - I will upcycle to make what I need - everything from underwear to evening wear! Join me for tips, exclusive BrawHem makes, and inevitably some hilarious disasters...
