Last days of November..

The last day of November! Can’t believe how quickly the months are passing by….The tree is up (my daughter asked for it to be done before the 1 of dec), the lights are on, the decorations are all around the house..How magical is Christmas right? Is it possible that at our age we still feel it, and find joy in a simple xmas tree?! Well i do, and im already in a better mood since my tree is up ha!

Some pretty alternative xmas trees and decoration, so creative!

And a couple of ideas for advent calendars..

Now i will just light up some candles, make some tea, cozy up on my sofa, and enjoy looking at my tree!

24 days till xmas lovelies, let the festivities begin!

Happy Thanksgiving!

Happy Thanksgiving to all my american friends and bloggers out there! I hope you have a wonderful day surrounded by loving family and friends, and of course amazing food!!

On another note here is a peak at my balcony this beautiful sunny morning

Those white “rugs” are the real deal, my parents got them in the 70’s, and because my mom never throws anything,  here they are forty years later breathing fresh air again!

And to enter the holiday spirit, here are some of the new arrivals we are putting in our xmas baskets this year :

Beautiful little handmade decorations you can hang on your wall or just prop on a table! Aren’t they just lovely?

New project

Life has been pretty busy here at Kalynor these last few weeks, here are a few pictures to show you what I have been doing..


Yes xmas baskets!! My cousin and I started a gift basket business, and since the holidays are so near, we decided to start with the xmas ones. We are very excited about it, doing something we truly like is very important; you are always motivated, inspired, ready to do something new!

The idea behind this was to receive a basket full of little gifts you would enjoy and use, not only edibles. The same will apply to every occasion from mother’s day to new baby, retirement, new job, etc…

You can see more on our Facebook page here, and a blog is in the works…

I have been a little negligent with my blog lately, moving to a new town, settling in a new apartment (still so much to do!), starting a new business…All these changes have kept me busy and have taken me away from blogging regularly and checking all the lovely blogs out there!

Bear with me till i get back on track and more organized :)..

Have a great rest of the week, xoxo
