December, halfway through Advent meaning preparation. No snow, a blue sky lights up the church weathercock, shining golden ship to 'come sailing in'. Christmas tree just up with this little fimo mole broach ornament, today's charity shop can't resist find. Home to open another picture on a beautiful woodland Advent calendar - the 15th day - it's also a mole!
This gorgeous advent calendar, and two bonus robins, by very talented artist Angela Harding - www.angelaharding.co.uk . . . . .
. . . . In another Advent calendar, I am travelling back in time with Elisabet and other pilgrims to Bethlehem and the birth of Christ - a charming Norwegian tale; an allegory?
