ho ho ho...

 
 
Its Pehr's first Christmas so we are all super excited. She wont remember anything, but we will definitely remember it! We took her out to find a nice tree...in our smallest car...
 
she loves the fiat 500, at least, she falls asleep instantly as soon as its little engine start popping away.
she was quite fussy about the shape and quality of the needles, so we had to see a few different vendors...but, finally she found one that would fit in both our car and our flat.


It was such a crispy cold day, we deserved some sweet hot tasty things in pastry, and a cup of tea...
 
 
Pehr had milk and a hug.

 
we hung old French playing cards and chandelier drops on the tree, which we stood in our log basket...


and put our vintage baubles in a vase, and put tea lights in vintage star cake tins...


although she only just discovered she has hands, Pehr has got quite a few pressies to open.


I think its going to be a good Christmas...
...especially with the little one around.

If I dont report back beforehand...Happy Christmas all you lovely readers out there! xxx

  46. Your baby is so cute! I love the way you wrapped the presents. I don't know why, but brown paper really appeals to me as wrapping paper. And the print paper makes them so pretty. :D
