So cozy in Iceland

This time of year is dark here in Iceland but we light it up with Christmas lights and candles. Here is the arrangement in my apartment. It's a simple thing I put together. A tray and a holly from Ikea and some pine cones...I walked by a flower store here in my hometown on Saturday and saw this ceramic house in the window which I couldn't resist! I think I will bring it with me to the US when I leave. In case you are wondering about the's a candle! I had totally forgotten about them, I guess I brought a couple of them last year with me when we spent the new years here and completely forgot....What a nice surprise for me...The price sticker was still on them.....Marshalls $12.99
Needless to say I am getting a little sticker shock regarding prices on regular household items here. I don't mind when I am buying handmade items or designer things but it's amazing how much money everything costs here and I am just talking about silly little things that cost nothing in America.
Here is a little sneak peak of my arrangement. I took this picture at 3:30 pm and it was getting dark already

More to come on the apartment....It's hard to take pictures and beat the daylight...
