A long weekend at the cabin was just what I needed to get in the right Christmas mood, which is not easy here in California. Everything tends to be either very over the top or very artificial. Luckily I had packed just a bit of Danish design to put me in the mood and with a load of home baked gingerbread cookies we got the mood going.
The past two years I have been away for Christmas, this year I started my travels a bit sooner, so I can return just in time for the holidays to really kick in and for Christmas Eve with my entire family, which will be the first time in MANY years. To get a bit of sun before heading back to the dark cold days is great, but also makes it very difficult to find the holiday spirit.
With me in my suitcase, was my trusted (and very south after) wooden Santa by Kay Bojensen. He is a classic and as soon as you unwrap him you are one step closer to Christmas – and he has a new lady friend. Even more important, which I had deliberately packed to bring to the cabin, was a bunch of the ever so simple, yet so stylish Rhombe Baubles from Lyngby Porcelain. Place them around your dining table as simple décor or hang them from pine branches, and voila – instant Christmas.
