Advent Calendar


So many bloggers have started posting Christmas recipes, decorations and ideas. I love it! I am not one for bright neon lights, never ending Xmas tunes, and plastic Santas, but I like all the rest :-)! So I will try to post a little thing every day... (brrr, now I said it... everyday!!!), and since it is December 1st I will start with this:


The first decoration that I put up ever year is the Advent Calendar that my mother in law made for us 11 years ago. She is a very talented sawer (and knitter and quilt maker) and this is all made by hand.



The kids love it, every day they pick a figurine from the pocket with the date number and they put it up on the tree, in turn. Sometimes I get a turn!
Look at the details!!!

  2. Gorgeous! I made a string of 24 little cream and gold numbered socks for my eldest's first Christmas 10 years ago. Homemade advent calendars are the best!
    Happy December Alessandra xox
