First of Advent Weekend
Just some random photos from the past weekend…
Saturday morning we woke up to a thin layer of snow on the terrace
Later on in the day there was nothing left of the snow but it was a beautiful sunny winter day. This photo is from when I waited for the tram – which was completely packed when it arrived.
Fika at L’Ultime Atome with a French friend after some shopping – I first ordered a Kriek (Belgian cherry beer) but then quickly changed my mind to a “chocolate chaud”
My grandmother sent me the little angel cut out (hanging from the orchid) last week when it was my “name day” (Cecilia is my 2nd name). She makes them for the local church Christmas market. The religious icon is from Cyprus.
First of Advent breakfast with a new Christmas kitchen towel as a table cloth
Our white bed linen is still in storage but I bought these two Christmas pillow cases in Sweden last January and left them there, so my parents brought them to Brussels last month
Time to be domestic…
I wanted to take advantage of the sunshine and paint this chest of drawers outside, until I realised that the paint was not to be used in temperatures of under 10 degrees. After sandpapering outdoors on the terrace I therefore had to move inside again (and only did one coat of primer)
