Today's charming space isn't really about the space itself but the idea of having both a desk and a fireplace in the living room. At this point I wouldn't say no to that. The days are turning colder and even though burning candles and cups of tea do wonder, I miss our old wood burner.
Yesterday I found myself getting a little excited about Christmas; I even played two Christmas songs just for fun. I know very well what brought this on. I was arranging books in the living room (read: making space for the new ones I get at Christmas) and also preparing a Christmas giveaway on the blog, which will be revealed soon.
Luxembourg has the same Santa Claus ritual as Belgium. He arrives on the 6th of December and we decorate the Christmas tree before he comes to town so in only a few weeks our home will be ready for Christmas.
What about you, are you feeling the Christmas spirit?
