Perhaps it is my mother's much anticipated visit that is gettting me into the Christmas spirit so early...
Maybe it is the brutal cold and the light dusting of snow?
What ever it is, I couldn't help but go into the shops to share some Christmastime magic with you. Please don't think I have jumped the gun too much, I know it isn't even Thanksgiving yet.
The decorations are being hung everywhere around Oslo and the smaller surrounding areas. The children are already clamouring to get a tree. I love the tree, the scent, bringing a bit of nature's beauty into our home, etc, but I don't like the needles all over the floor!
So we will wait a bit before we get our tree. I fancy this gorgeous sweater under it... for me! Aren't those fabulous cables? If I didn't have the huge list of knitting projects that I would like to get done before Christmas, I would be considering making a sweater something like this beauty.
Thanks so much to Zanz for letting me take photos today to my heart's content! All the photos are from this lovely interior decorating shop in Lillestrøm, right outside of Oslo.
