my annual expedition to the Swedish Christmas Fair


As the sun was setting over north London (16:06 - can you believe it?), I was sitting on a train journeying towards the Christmas Market at the Swedish Church in Marylebone. It was the first proper Christmassy thing I have done this year, and now I'm super excited about it all, and am increasingly tempted to 'Scandinavia-up' the festivities this year.

I was very well behaved - I only bought one box of pepperkaker biscuits, an advent candle and a pretty wooden robin ornament - but there were plenty of other tempting Swedish goodies: housewares, nyommy food and pretty textiles to name but a few!

Now I'm back at home with a snuggly kitten and a nice cup of tea, munching on pepperkaker, listening to Abba and thinking about Swedish gingerbread houses...

If you're interested and free (short notice I know, sorry), the last day of the fair is tomorrow.

It looks amazing - I would like to go next year I think - please?

I completely forgot I was going until the morning of the fair, so I didn't get a chance to invite anyone. But I'll Scandinavia-asise my house this year so you don't feel like you missed out :)
