How to Welcome an Estonian Päkapikk Into Your Home For Advent.

P1120833

Päkapikk! Delightful little elf like creatures that visit good little Estonian children every night during Advent! (See "mermaid's " comment below for the proununciation.)

Not much is known about Päkapikk! They started appearing in Estonia about 40 years ago and it seems they have been very secretive about where they come from or how they came to be!

On my previous post I shared my brand new table top Icelandic Advent Calendar Tree!

In this post, I am sharing how we constructed the tree. It is more of a guideline than a step by step tutorial but I am hoping some of you who may want to build your own will find it useful

As always, please feel free to ask me any questions.

Yarnia Inspired Angles: My Littlest Angel

Almost named this angel "Trouble"! But all is forgiven now so that's not going to happen!

Instead, I have named her "My Littlest Angel" after the little angel in a much loved book (The Littlest Angel) remembered from my childhood. For a time the angel in the story just couldn't get the hang of things and kept inadvertently doing things that prevented him from getting his wings.
