A Scandi style Christmas with a Swedish Star
I do hope you will think of this this post as a ‘planning ahead post’ and not as an ‘eeeeeek!its too early for Christmas’ post?…
At this time of year the light fades fast. It is normally grey and dreary from now until March. If we are lucky there may be a few exceptional sunny days in between.
It follows that this is also the time of the year that I yearn for light and bright, I have daylight bulbs in my ceiling lights in my sewing room and we have started using them elsewhere in the house too, they make a huge difference, all the colours come back to life.
Christmas has its own special lights, twinkly lights, vintage tree lights and of course starlight…
Christmas Stars will soon be hanging in many homes in Sweden. Each family has their own tradition during the Christmas festivities, but almost every window will have a Christmas Star shining from it. Originally a symbol of the guiding star but today one of the most popular Christmas decorations because of it’s atmospheric light and pretty design.
I was lucky to have been sent a traditional Swedish star as a gift. It is a beautiful, large, slim shaped metallic copper colour. It came with its own light fixture and plug, so I just needed to find a bulb and an adapter for the two pin plug. (I used a travel adapter)
