Last month, my friend C and I went to the Spirit of Christmas Fair at Kensington. It was a fabulous event, and I will definitely go again next year. While we were there, we stopped by the Suzie Watson Designs stand and C gifted me this lovely hand-painted advent candle.
The candles are decorated so prettily, with handpainted hearts, stars and christmas ivy. As I was away in Australia for a few days, I have been a little late in getting the Christmas tree decorated. Whilst I was fighting jet lag on Friday night, I decided to tackle the tree and get up to date with burning my candle.
There are some lovely things on the website, but I think an advent candle is going to become an annual tradition for me.
As is my custom, I have continued with my favourite blue and silver theme this year. A new addition to the tree is this lovely little wedgewood teapot which was a gift from my mother last Christmas...and given that I was just on Sydney recently, there are also now a lovely little selection of gifts under the tree...
