It’s that time of the year again…
Daylight is disappearing and there’s a cold wind blowing and I want to hibernate.
As an antidote to the gloom and chill – and to ease the frustration of shortened working hours, due to lack of decent light – I recommend visitingthe website of 32 Degrees North.
Despite the chilly sounding name, it is crammed full of things to tempt even the most grouchy of hibernating bears into a burst of seasonal cheer and creativity.
This year we found our advent calendars on their website.
After making some very difficult choices – too many to choose from ! – we took the plunge and invested in four.
These then arrived in record breaking time – via international post – and they were extremely well packed – in no less than a cardboard box !
So give yourself a treat and visit them for
- Unique handmade decorations
- Craft Supplies
- Vintage paper scraps
- Modern paper scraps
- Czech blown glass baubles
- Spun glass
- Ready to decorate papier mache shapes
- Decorative papers
- German glitter glass
and much, much more
Their blog is also well worth a visit, and is a great way to get ideas and inspiration – as well as admiring the inventiveness of others !
One item, that particularly caught my eye on my last visit, was made by Etsy seller – kitschavan
Now that’s what I call a Christmas Tree !
