I love the idea of advent candles-I for each week of December. At the beginning of each week the family gathers to light the correct number of candles and sing carols. This is a lovely idea! I like the look of the flocked pinecones in the star.
Natural Christmas pine tree - We had a tree that was as sparse as this one year. It was the top of a larger pine tree. It was one of my favorite trees because you could see the pretty decorations so well.
