This year it looks like my decorations will be mostly kept in white,-
and yesterday,-The first Sunday in Advent - we lit the Advents Wreath for the 
first time this year! It is a big tradition in Denmark to celebrate advent!

This little display is on my dining table ...the  christmas tree I bought on my trip to 
Copenhagen, it is very simple, but beautiful I think!!! I added a 
tiny white fur to the deer ,and the house looks cosy with the tealight lit!!

Some of you may remember, that I promised to show you my little
but wonderful collection of christmas cones purchased  from  KIMBERLY
So here you have them - they are all richly decorated with old,
and new items, and I love them!!

I love the deer and all the bling here.

This beauty ,so wonderful made from an old spool still with yarn , is so 
beautiful, with the tiny house on top!

Isen`t it adorable with old lace and the flower !!

Another beautiful deer and old wonderful glass 

See the snowflake behind the deer!!

This one I purchased this year!!

Also a very gorgeous piece, with the angel and her tree on top,
the rose and big tassel 

I so love Kimberly`s beautiful creations, and have purchased 
many lovely pieces the past years !!
Many of you know dear Kimberly, but if not click the link above and visit her blog and her shop,
---so many wonderful things to look at ,there.


A last photo for now, a  cardboard house I decorated myself , on top of a stable
of  food stools 

I wish you all a lovely first december week, and hope you can enjoy the coming dayes
without too much stress. 
Thank you dearest friends, for all you warm comments to me about my health!!
I feel better, and pray and hope it goes on improoving for me .

Welcome to new followers  I will hopefully have time and energy
to visit all of you soon, but know you are so appriciated here !!

Warm hugs and love
from Dorthe

En rigtig gammeldags dansk adventskrans, meget smuk, og alle dine kræmmerhuse med hjorte er så kære. knus morkaren.

Oh Dorthe all your lovely Christmas decorations look so beautiful! I love your advent wreath with the little angels attached, so sweet! This year I did not make a hanging one but just a wreath on our dining table decorated with green spruce. Advent is not much of a tradition here in Scotland, but we always celebrate it.
I adore all your other beautiful bits and pieces too, that cone collection is simply amazing and your little house on it's tower of stools is so pretty too! I can see your house is well and truly getting ready for this wonderful season.
So glad you are feeling better too!

butterfly said...

What a post full of wonders, dear Dorthe! I don't know where to start... With those elegant white decorations, and the beautiful ribbons on your Advent Crown? Or those amazing cones by Kimberley? Or that absolutely adorable cardboard house - I think that's my favourite thing. Thank you so much for sharing all this beauty with us, and I hope you will be able to enjoy all the pleasures of Advent and Christmas in good health.

Hello Dorthe,
Your advent wreath is gorgeous! I love your "white" theme this year. The tree is fab, and I am so glad you put the fur on the deer! She looks happier that way : )
Your collection of Kimberly's cones is amazing. I especially adore those first two! Oh my! Your home will look wonderful with all your beautiful decorations.
I love your little Christmas house! The stars and silver trim look great and I love that you put the blue trees there! This is a festive house!

By the way, what are food stools?

White Winter Holiday Decor is very beautiful and calming during this hectic season. Loving your cones collection. December Delights Dear...

Hello dear Dorthe

I was thinking of you enjoying your Grandmother time - I'm sure it was a precious time for you all!

A beautiful advent wreath and I love the addition of ribbons - when I clicked on it I thought it was hanging from the window - looks very romantic!

I love Kimberly's cones - they will look beautiful hanging on your tree.

It's lovely to have you back with us dear friend.

Oh my Dear Dorthe there is something so magical about the light from candles in the evening. Your Advent wreath is so beautiful so too your little white Christmas tree, decorated deer and candle tea house.
Kimberely's cones are all so beautiful - each one different yet so creative with her added Christmas embellishments like the angel with her instrument.
You are such a clever girl decorating that little house perched high on a set of little stools. How clever is that??? It looks so much like your very own home too!
Hope you are continuing in the direction of excellent health sweetie.
Crossing my fingers for you,
Big warm hugs and kisses as you enjoy your candle lit room this evening.

Hello my dearest Dorthe, I'm so glad to hear that you're feeling better. Hopefully you'll be totally recovered soon and can enjoy the Christmas season.
Your Christmas decoration is lovely and the new tree was a wonderful find. You've got a sweet collection of wooden foot stools and the house on top looks beautiful.
Have a great week, sweetie!
Mange kys og knus to you,

What beautiful cones! I am glad to hear you are feeling better. The stack of foot stools you used to decorate with is such a good idea and the house on top adds such a nice touch. I also like those baby shoes added in. You always have such nice decorations and ideas.

Your advent wreath is beautiful Dorthe! I think it is such a lovely tradition...

Celestina Marie said...

Hi Dorthe, So good to hear you are feeling better and I pray you continue.
Love your home décor. It is so inviting and I love the tradition of the advent candle wreath. Our faith does this as well being Catholic.
The Christmas tussie cones are darling. What gorgeous details Kimberly added making them so special. I can imagine your home is stunning and inviting. Love the foot stool idea stacking them with your treasures on display. So charming.

Stay safe in your storm and be warm. We are bracing for ice. It is already very cold. Yesterday was like summer!! Oh well, tis the season.

Continue to feel better.
Hugs, Celestina Marie

Beautiful Christmas decorations, Dorthe, I adore the little deer with its sweet fur shrug. Kimberly's cones are just gorgeous, how lovely that you have a collection of them. And the house you decorated is delightful, it looks fabulous on top of the foot stools.
I hope all is well with you and you are getting a little bit better every day. Sending you lots of hugs, xxx

Dear Dorthe, your Christmas decoration is very charming and adorable. This year I also like the color white best.
I've heard that you lost three trees in the storm? How terrible! But thank God nothing bad happened to you.
The Cones by Kimberly are also quite fantastic. I love Kimberly `s creations and works of art very much.
Have a nice Advent Sunday, my friend.
Hugs and smile
