  1. The clear pine cone is definitely my favourite. It will look great in our kitchenwindow. It’s not easy to find pine cones in the city, so this will be a perfect substitute.

  2. The clear snowflake ornament is so perfect. Snowflakes disappear so quickly. Every year we try to capture them on pieces of ice from the freezer. It never quite works. The best we could hope for would be to photograph it and remember it forever. I love this photograph I came across the other day I hope you enjoy it as much as I did. This year we hope we will finally catch a snowflake, perhaps we might be lucky and win a Holmegaard ornament. It could be a memory of the snowflakes never caught and also of a trip we made to their factory once where the children tried glass blowing and we saw so many beautiful pieces of glass work.

  3. A difficult choise, because they are all very pretty. But I think my favorite is snowflake smoke. 🙂

  4. Love your blog! – I used to live in London, and actually miss it often now I’m back in DK – so it’s great to get a feel for it through your blog 🙂
    Fantastic giveaway, this one – my favorite (hard to pick) is the Celebrate Snowflake in smoke.

  5. This is my favourite advent calender 😉
    From the Holmegaard ornaments, I like the “Celebrate bird indigo” the most, but they are all lovely 🙂

  6. I love the the Celebrate Snowflake Smoke. These designs are so somple and yet so gorgeous. (Honestly, I love all of them.)

  7. My 4 year old is traditional in her tastes and we both agree, the clear snowflake is beautiful.

  8. I LOVE the indigo bird – really simple and beautiful. God Jul from the half-Swedish part of me and the quarter-Swedish part of my daughter, Stella, who has just turned one. We love your site, and I’m going to set my husband to work at some of Scandinavian Dad’s recipes;-)

  9. I like the celebrate bird in clear glass the best, it’s gorgeous.
    Although I am currently trying to justify buying the whole set (“Well, I work hard. I deserve a gift. They’re practically a family heirloom!”).

  10. I am in love with the snowflakes especially the clear one.
    Very excited that the countdown to Christmas has begun 🙂
