MERRY CHRISTMAS....

.... to all my readers!!! May you all have a wonderful Christmas and many festive days!


Norwegians celebrate Christmas on Christmas Eve. Living in another country where Christmas is celebrated on Christmas Day - does not make any difference to me - Christmas is and will always be the 24th! This year I intended decorating a bit early, to have some quiet days before the Eve, but the only thing I managed to do early was to put up the Christmas wall quilts.

When the days grew nearer to Christmas, I finally decorated the tree and found places for the Santa's. Actually we have two Christmas trees; the biggest one in the dining room and the smaller one (both artificial) in the TV-room. Since we have an open solution with no walls between the kitchen, dining and TV-room, two decorated trees make it more festive!



Who is hunting mice?! :)) Birre-Liten has always loved this tree skirt, I really don't know why... Perhaps the decorations are glued on to the sacking (?) and he likes the smell of the sacking? Who knows?! I don't believe the only reason is that he is after the mice!!! :))) After I took this photo, he was rolling on it, kicking and most probably trying to kill the mice! LOL! I made the tree skirt ages ago... can't really remember which year it was, perhaps late 1980's.... I love it! :) I love the dancing couples! :) Before I put it on the floor I had to re-glue four eyes on the mice - Birre's fault from earlier years!!! :))
Enjoy the festive days!

Merry Christmas to you! We celebrate a bit on both days. We always opened presents from each other on Christmas Eve night and then the kids would open presents from Santa on Christmas morning.
