Decorative ledge....

So, the other day I showed you some of my wishes 
(not for Christmas, but just in general) 
from Potterybarn. 

Since, I have been dreaming about the decorative ledge....




I love how the surface is chipped, so Shabby Chic, the Potterybarn way.... 


Should I? Should I not? Oh boy!

Santa Came by our House...

Santa Claus came by our house yesterday.

One of my gifts was a bread bowl from Danish Erik Bagger. 
Love it.....

www.erikbagger.dk

Ada had an exiting day too. All day she was asking for Santa 
Claus and when he was going to come to our house.
We had left a cookie and milk for him outside. Also hay and water for his reindeer. 
When he finally showed up with the presents, and it was time for her to 
open them, she was so happy. 
We had our very good friends over and enjoyed 
a Danish/American Christmas Dinner. We could not have asked for better company. 

All morning Ada has been playing with all her new toys.  
With this biiiiiig smile on her face. 



Have a great December 25 
Soon we are going to my mother-in-law's house for dinner and 
enjoy the company of the family. 

See you later Bloggers !
Hope you had a nice Christmas too !

I received it as a Christmas gift from one of our Swedish 
customers at my job many years ago.
I love it. I think it is the cutest thing. 


I have one in red too, 
but the white one is my favorite... 

Have a great day !

New Boots

Good Morning. 
I just turned on all 4 candles on my Advent calender. 
Soon it is Christmas...

Ada slept to almost 9 o'clock today. It has been a while seen she slept in. 
She got some some new boots (from Skechers) yesterday and 
she almost wanted to sleep with them on....  

Ada and her new haircut 

Ada loves to get her hair straighten. 
I am not sure how I am going to get her to wash her hair 
tonight. She knows it means; back to super curly hair.....
She is such a girl....  


I am off to make breakfast. 
I promised to make eggs, waffles with Nutella etc. Yummy ! 


See you later Bloggers

Saturday Night Christmas Movie

Tonight I am watching one of my favorite Christmas movies: 
Elf with Will Ferrell 


I love this movie, it is sooooo funny. I can watch it over and over. 
If you never watched it and you need a good laugh 
and a cute silly Christmas story, this is the movie to watch! 

Do you have any favorite Christmas movies?


Good Night and enjoy your Saturday Night... 

Good Morning 

We have a fun day ahead of us. 
This afternoon we are going to the mall. Christmas Shopping. 
(...and Ada is also getting a haircut.....) 


Our 2 little angels watching over us during the holidays 

But first we are just going to stay at the house and snuggle up under 
the blankets and watch a little bit of television and have breakfast.  
It is still too cold to go outside. It is almost freezing....  

Thank you for stopping by girls and have a great Saturday.....

All the present for Denmark have 
been shipped off (and arrived, phew.... they made it there on time), now we

Ada is sleeping, Mr J is still working, but should be home soon. 
I am heading for my sofa with a a blanket. I am ready 
to watch a new episode of Top Chef Texas 


I love these votive candle holders I bought in IKEA several years ago. 
 Check the little angles... They are super cozy. 

Good night and I will see you guys tomorrow.

Christmas Animals

A couple of Christmas animals at our little house.....

Yesterday was my birthday and Mr. J and Ada surprised 
me with balloons, flowers and delicious food. And a present. 
I enjoyed every second of it. I could not have asked for a 
better birthday with my 2 babies!


Have a super Wednesday and see you later.

Earrings

I am not one of those people with tons of earrings. 
I have some. And the once I have are all over the place. Sort of. 
I usually just throw them in this tray that I have behind the television in our bedroom.

Look at this. 
What a great idea.

Easy DIY and so cute too ! 
I am inspired

DIY project this afternoon...

Result of our DIY project from this afternoon
We had a fun time. 
We made a big + medium one, and a few small ones too. 

The medium Heart we hung on the door. 

Pearls are from some garlands I bought last
year (on sale after Christmas) and some wire

Have a great Saturday night. It is getting late here. 
Time for me to get comfy under my blanket. I think I am going to see if 
there is a good movie on. 
I am not sure how long I will last.... I am tired. 

Good Night.
