Little lights

The whole week M and L are lustily singing all songs of St. Martin, who is riding on his horse and cutting his cloak in half to share with a beggar. He did this during a snowstorm to save and warm the beggar. Yesterday on St. Martin's Day the weather was almost alike. Luckily for all the children with their candles rain stopped shortly and most lights kept burning.
Traditionally I scooped out a kohlrabi and cutted what L had ordered: a sun, a moon, stars, a house and a heart.

I absolutely love the "mini nursery" that you did in your room with the felt crib!! It's simple, functional, and GORGEOUS!

Oh- this reminds me of my childhood! I always loved to walk with my little lanterns. Nice photos.
