Hi there, I’m Hege from Hege in France. I’m very pleased that Marianne asked me to guest post on her lovely blog.

I’m Norwegian and advent is a big part of my Christmas traditions, so I thought I’d show you my DIY advent candle holders. It’s really easy to make. All you need is some bottles (I’ve used some black beer bottles), 4 candles and you need to print out your numbers.

Black is a very trendy colour for Christmas this year, so I’ll be decorating my home in black for the first time and I’m looking forward to it. Do you prefer a traditional Christmas to a modern one?

The star is made from vine cuttings and the root with moss I found whilst out walking in the woods. I do love the fact that it’s all not just natural, but also from where we live in the beautiful country side about 2 hours north of Bordeaux.

As today is the 3rd of December today it’s time to open advent calendar number 3. What did you get?

It’s been lovely guest posting for you. Pop over to my blog for more Christmas fun!
Hege
