Can it get any more festive? One day to Christmas and the entire city is dipped in a festive, glittery atmosphere. That is all minus the snow and cold temperatures. I don’t know how it is where you guys are, but here the forecast for tomorrow says 15 degrees Celsius. Well, it’s a sort of Mediterranean Christmas Eve in Munich. Hence, I thought all those evergreens look a bit out of place with this mild climate so I went off to the farmers’ market yesterday and bought a bunch of olive twigs.
I love the green-silver shimmer of the olive leaves, the dash of Mediterranean lightness and sunshine that seems to be present in my home now, I really really like it. I placed them in my little Mediterranean, dip-dyed pot and played around with a few elements to create a little vignette – typical Christmas fruits, another clay pot, a painting of a Bohemian from the Balkans in a vintage frame – I couldn’t decide which one I liked best so I’ve put them together in a little animation for you.
Herewith I am wishing you all a very merry, happy festive season wherever you are and whatever the weather is there. Enjoy the holidays and surround yourself with the people and things you love! I will take some days off too, after Christmas I will be heading to Paris for New Year’s Eve so if you want to join me follow me along on Instagram. I will see you back here in 2014! Happy, happy, happy season my friends!
