Yesterday was Advent Sunday which means Christmas season is officially here :)
I spent a big part of Saturday putting up Christmas decorations at home (there’s an army of snowmen in my living room) and yesterday I went into town to check out the festivities.
There was a market on the town square. Mostly old ladies and school classes selling home-made cookies, bread, jam and such. Didn’t buy anything from any of them though since I’m one of those modern persons who never carry cash…
There were two reindeer at the market too, one brown and one white.
I don’t think a crowded market is the right place to bring an animal, but reindeer are tradition and they were very pretty.
Speaking of crowded, I couldn’t believe how much people were out! 8O This is normally a town where a queue of more than 3 people is something to roll your eyes at, but yesterday was nuts. Where did everyone come from?
For the first time in my life I actually have all Christmas gifts ready, which is odd since I’m usually so last-minute with my gifts… But it’s a nice change – and it means I can relax and buy fun stuff for myself instead ;) Here’s yesterdays catch:
You can never have to many candles! Especially not candles that look like gingerbread cookies and snowballs ;)
Look, a Moomin print! :D I love Tove Jansson and her Moomin characters, so I’m really happy I found it. Just have to buy a frame for it and figure out which wall to hang it on.
I also found some simple white candle holders and a crazy disco deer XD Like the magpie I am I can’t stay away from things that glitter, so when I saw the deer I had to buy it! It’s tacky, I know, but I can’t help it – to weird and to fun :P
