second week of advent...

today we begin our second week of advent. this is the time when we focus on the plant kingdom. we collect pinecones and place them in our advent table setting, where they join the amethyst crystals. what a joyous time it is to pay tribute to all of the plants we know and love, from which we receive both nourishment and beauty. for it is life itself which we share with the plants.



we continue to open each little door on our advent calendar, maya receives a second small gift, and we light our first and second advent candles this week.

lighting of our second advent candle



yours in beginning our second week of advent,

shelley

You are so very inspiring to this "New to Waldorf" mommy! Your posts are a thing of beauty and I look forward to them each day..

I have long admired your paper star luminaries, any suggestions on a book/website on instructions on how to create one?

with warm winter thanks,

Can you share a link where I could find the advent table piece with the eight sections and center bowl? It is beautiful and inspiring!

Where did you find the advent ring you are using for the candles, pine cones, etc?
