Daily countdown in December

The past 3 years we’ve had a candle from Normann Copenhagen to help us count down the days till Christmas. However, I’ve bought another candle holder for our candle this year.


First of all, I wanted a thinner candle. It was hard for us to burn the bigger candle down each day, so a thinner version is on trial this year. In mid October a candle holder from finnsdottir arrived at my door. I’d been trying to decide which one to pick for a few weeks, and I finally decided on the one with the tiny Bambi.

I’ve added a few new trees from Søstrene Grene to the decoration and I’m quite happy with the result. I’ll add a picture on Instagram, when reach the end of November. But until then, you can check out the Christmas campaign from Søstrene Grene – I bought the green and white trees. If you want even more Christmas inspiration, you should check out my board on Pinterest. But I’ll make sure to collect some of my favourite Christmas ideas in another post when we hit the end of November.

Light a candle

It’s time to enjoy the company of your family inside. And what could be more cozy than to light candles all over the home? I put some of mine away for the summer, but it’s time to bring them out of their hiding place. I’ve found a few new ones – and I might buy the christmas light from Normann Copenhagen again this year.

Normann Copenhagen

Det er ingen hemmelighed, at jeg elsker sort. Og var jeg faldet over dette kalenderlys fra Normann tidligere, så havde jeg helt sikkert købt det. Men julen er jo meget mere end levende lys. Jeg holder meget af gaver i flot indpakning. Det er hele oplevelsen, som jeg lægger mærke til. Derfor kan jeg også blive helt træt af de butikker, som slet ikke har tænkt over indpakningen. Mange gange står jeg selv og pakker ind herhjemme.

It’s no secret – I love black. And if I had seen this candle earlier, I would have bought one. I love Christmas, and especially gift wrapping. Unfortunately, many shops don’t care about the quality of the paper or the look of the gift, when they are done wrapping it. It’s a shame. More often that not, I end up at home wrapping my own gifts.
