The end of the year is fast approaching and while I can't wait to reach the end and enjoy some time away from work, I also conciously want to slow down and enjoy the days leading up to the holidays as well. True to the saying "happiness is not a destination - it is a journey" I'll try to find those happy moments in the day to day as well. And if all else fails, I'll have this huge advent calendar to be the thing I'll look forward to each day.
My sister made us this beautiful calendar
as a bribe to look after Lilly the cat while she's away on vacation as a surprise because she's simply fabulous like that. I can't wat to open the first one tonight and then every other day as my boyfriend gets to open the even numbers. Such a great idea, I can't thank her enough for being so thoughtful. ❤
Now I know everyone is wondering about the same thing: where did I get this beautiful wood sled*? The answer is Rothirsch, a Swiss brand focusing on everyday products which they sell in their online shop. Their products always combine simple design with functionality, as is the case with this wood sled. It's a special edition of the characteristic mountain rodels and produced by Gloco, which makes these since 1919. While waiting for the snow to take this sled outside, it serves us beautifully as a winter decoration in our flat.
Update: We are very happy to announce that together with Rothirsch we are offering you a 20% discount on this wood sled. Enter the code STYLE before you checkout (click the button „update your cart total“ to see the reduction). This code is valid until December 31st 2014, so it’s a perfect occasion to buy it for yourself or a loved one as a present. Pssst : There’s even free shipping within Switzerland. Now we only need to hope for snow, right… ?
