It’s the season of red and green and coziness and it’s making me so happy!! If you would like to see previous Happy Mondays you can do so here.
Bratäpfel and roasted almonds from the Christmas market make me my stomach full and me oh so happy.
I decided to decorate our apartment on Friday. Only to find out that I had hardly anything to decorate with. So I needed to get creative to make it still very festive and christmassy but also cheap 😉
I love love love out Santa from Ikea with the little light string and vase filled with Christmas ornaments. It brings the right amount of cheer to our hallway.
I didn’t really know what I wanted to do with out windows but since we don’t really have a ton of space to decorate I wanted to do something with it. The candle holder I had at hand and I found this small cake doily for like 75ct a pack at the local drugstore and decided to make stars/snowflakes out of it. Nothing fancy but I like it.
In the kitchen my sister and I decided to put up strings of gold stars. My mom used to do that and since we both have such neat memories from it we decided to do it our selves. I still had stars left from last year so we added a few and hang it all up.
I saw those mugs a couple of days ago on Shay Shull´s Blog and thought they were so cute but also immediately thought that I will never get them here in Germany or if I could they would be shipped from the US and be very expensive and would just be no priority right now to spend money on. So I let it go. And then randomly on Saturday I went to a store for something totally different and saw those exact mugs for like 1,80€ and couldn´t believe it.
So I got each of us a mug and one Santa plate (not shown) to put cookies on and I`M IN LOVE. It is making me so happy you wouln´t believe it 😉 just the perfect holiday cheer one sip at a time! LOVE LOVE LOVE!
Nothing new here….
We are listening to basically every Spotify Christmas Playlist there is. From classical christmas choir music to your good old standard christmas songs. Basically everything I´ve been listening to since the beginning of November 😀
I hope you have a very HAPPY and christmassy Monday!!
Lots of love,
