ADVENT



I saw these advent calendars in a gift shop and fell in love with them. I could just imagine a child wanting to open one of the above 'houses' to see what was inside, one a day until Christmas.  How wonderful. Long gone are the calendars that were mere strips of cardboard with cut out doors that were the norm when my son was a wee lad. Modern ones are definitely more stylish. 


 And look at all the little drawers to open, just right for eager and excited children. I almost wished I was a child again... smiles.


 Tiny houses drawers and hooks... oh my, these Advent houses are worth waiting for.

Roll on Christmas!

How WONDERFUL is right, Valerie! I clearly remember being so excited as child; eagerly anticipating opening up the windows of the house each day, as we moved closer and closer to Christmas day on the 25th!

The advent calendars you shared here are better than any ones I've ever seen. They're beautiful!

Thanks for sharing, dear lady. Have a lovely weekend!

X to you and Joe!

Those are awesome. It is going to be a few years before we can even think about doing something like that in our house as the kiddos are way too young. Thanks for sharing Val. Hope all is well.

Oh, how adorable! The one I put together with the Bug was nothing like these. Next time I'm going to a fancy shop like yours.
