{christmas} expo at Caprice de Fil

Visiting a Christmas exhibitions in November makes you want to go home and redecorate on the spot! Caprice de Fil is the place to go if you need inspiration and if you have a sudden urge for Christmas! Entering the white little shop (5 minutes away from Antelias Church (15 minutes from Beirut Center) ) today was a sweet experience… walls and shelves were filled with little elves, angels, red and white christmas balls, hand made ornaments, and lots more…my children and I were touching every little piece and seeing it in our home! Needless to say that this was impossible as such beautiful ornaments come with a price… different prices for all budgets. the taste of products is exquisite, pretty, fresh and very Scandinavian…I felt I was in Denmark for a little moment…

What I also found remarkable is the wonderfully hand made ornaments; made by angels I would say,Lebanese Ladies living all over the mountains, working sometimes for months to deliver just one piece. Incredibly refined and lovely.

Here are some snapshots of the shop…

Easter & lovely decoration…

The only memory I have of Easter decoration is when we decorated real eggs at my grand-mother’s country house in Denmark. My grand-mother used to prick the eggs at both extremities and we would all sit and blow out the egg yolk and whites out! It was not an easy task and I remember some eggs braking and our faces turning blue!

Hard-boiling them is definitely a better solution.

My grandmother would then hang our creative eggs on a wooden branch cut from the garden and hanged from the ceiling. Away from hands and kids! It was always a lovely sight.

I really would like to have this on my balcony:
