Not long now and it is finally here: December 1st. Advent is my absolute favourite time of the year and you will be getting a lot of Christmas related blog posts from me for the next few weeks (I hope you don't mind). I love the season's bakery, decorations, smells and festive moods. Since I was a little child, my Mum has (hand-) made Advent Calendars for me and my brothers every single year and since Joe got one for me this year - see here - I will be making one for him, too. Above is my inspiration (links and references can be found on my Winter Pinterest Board) and the actual making-of will follow next week.
