No curtains, but at least light...

I feel like time is running out, so much to do before Christmas Eve - wrapping the kids presents, cooking traditional Swedish Christmas food and make the final touches here and there. I think the kitchen curtain project has to wait... Sorry, I really want to have them finished, but there is not enough time... ☺

At least our window looks cozy and Christmassy at night... I almost think I'm back in Sweden where every window either has a star or an electric candle holder lighting up the darkness of winter.

Can you imagine walking down the street and every house, or every window in an apartment block has pretty Christmas lights like this. It's so beautiful. That's Christmas for me.

Magical, isn't it?

Took a couple with the flash too so you can see how cozy it is in our 
sit down kitchen area.

The wooden red Christmas star comes from IKEA. I bought it years ago.
The electric Advent candle holder on the window sill was a gift from my all time 
best friend/chosen sister in Sweden♥ 

I can live without the top Christmas curtains for a few more days, 
maybe we'll fix them up in the beginning of the year... 
or in time for the next Christmas ☺
Stay tuned!! lol
