It is mid November and I can’t believe Christmas is just six weeks away! How time flies! Anyway, I won’t complain as November has been incredibly beautiful here – sunny and pretty mild. And December is definitely something to look forward to: fairy lights, Christmas markets, mulled wine, and the joy of Advent calendars. Here in Germany Advent calendars have a big tradition. Almost everyone has one in December and the common version ‘surprises’ you with a piece of chocolate every day up to Christmas. However, how about changing the experience to real daily surprises for interior decoration lovers? My go-to source for art, Juniqe, had a great idea: They launched the art Advent calendar!
In December surprise yourself or a beloved person with a daily art delight. The Juniqe Advent calendar comes in five versions: four thematic calendars (botanical, animals, black & white, motivation quotes) and one mixed calendar. Do I need to specify which one I picked? Ha ha probably not. Of course I went for the botanical Advent calendar. I can’t wait to be surprised every day in December until the 24th but for this blog post I had to peek into number one at least. May the spirit of Christmas present forgive me!
In order to get into the Christmas mood I have already added a new art print found on Juniqe – the framed ‘Urban Christmas’ print found its place on my new plant shelf in the bedroom. And the cool thing with the Juniqe Advent calendar is: After Christmas I can exchange the art print with various botanical motives from the calendar. The posters in the Advent calendar are 20 x 30 cm thus perfect for my wooden frame.
But I am not just all talk here, I am also your personal Santa! Why? Because I am giving away one Botanical Advent calendar by Juniqe to one lucky winner. Leave a comment under this blog post or on Instagram to join in. The giveaway is open worldwide until November 22nd, 2018. Good luck!
