Celebrate Christmas with a good book



Each year I have a tradition to reread 'The Christmas Mystery' by Jostein Gaarder. This is a story about a little boy in Oslo, Norway who goes with his father to buy a magical Advent calendar. He finds a story unfolding as he opens a window each morning. Each chapter in the book is one of the days on the calendar. I use this book as an Advent calendar for myself reading a chapter each day. I won't reveal too much as I would really recommend looking for this book. It is wonderful story that you too may want to read over and over each December.

I am also sharing a photo of a Victorian style Christmas sign I stitched about 4 years ago. Each year we hang this in the living room.

Heidi I love your stitched Christmas sign! The design is so old fashioned and comforting. And I will definitely be on the lookout for The Christmas Mystery!

Enjoy your day,

Heidi, We all love The Christmas Mystery. We read it to the children quite a few years ago and it became a real favourite.
I just love your door hanging.
