The smell of freshly baked spiced gingerbread dough.
Memories of family time assembling & decorating gingerbread houses together, with all the fun that a dusting of icing sugar, lollies and royal icing brings.
A cup of warm spiced mulled cider enjoyed whilst hand knitting in a cosy chair by the fire, gazing out the window to a wintry Scandinavian landscape beyond.
Miniature dachshunds asleep at the base of the twinkling Christmas tree, kept warm in colourwork sweaters adorned with nordic motifs.
The scent of pine trees and crisp, fresh snow under your feet as you head outside of your little Gingerbread Haus cabin for a walk in this delightful nordic winter scene.
Welcome to the Louie & Lola 'Gingerbread Haus' 2023 Advent Calendar.
THE COLOUR PALETTE:
We hope you will join us on this journey as we aim to celebrate the warmth and richness of this beautiful nordic Christmas scene (with a slightly whimsical note).
Both Advent Calendar options will have the same colour palette.
