quick hello

Some time ago I found this cute Advent calendar on the website of Marie Claire idées and I liked the idea of using vintage postcards. I wouldn't mind having something like that on a beautiful table in my hallway.

I have a precious role today, I'm taking care of a 10 months old boy who is now sound asleep in our son's bed. I have spent the morning playing and singing for him in Icelandic on the living room floor. He is fascinated with the lights on the Christmas tree (evidently it did pay off decorating it so early) but he can't stand the sight of hubby, haha. Hubby is usually very good with children but this little fellow is not giving him a break just yet.

Now it's time to enjoy some coffee before my little friend wakes up. Enjoy your day!

  3. Very cute calender - and a 10 month old..? Oh my, every time I get to hold one in that age I begin to consider that we maybe should have another. They are so cuddly and soft and smell wonderful..! :-)

  4. That a precious role indeed. I'm sure you two have hit it off instantly. :) And that's a wonderful idea for the postcards. Every year I find different ways to display the cards I receive, I've used that idea a couple of times. Have a beautiful day, Lisa! xo

  6. Awww so cute! I have such a weak spot for babies, they are so smushable and huggable and that soft little spot on the top of their heads, and that baby powder smell. I'm going to go hug and smoosh Hayk now, instead ;)

    Enjoy your precious visitor....maybe your hubby can build him a crib or something to get in his favor ;)

  15. I adore this idea, love love love it! Looks like you found something else I can do in my house at Christmas. :) I think it would make a beautiful (and different) display for christmas cards that can be changed every year. x
