December 1st and the count down begins. Do you remember as a child counting the days till Santa came?
Today I am sharing my collection of advent calendars.
I bought this one from Pottery Barn clearance one year after Christmas.
Little treats and prizes will be tucked behind closed doors. This vintage looking one was another after Christmas purchase.
Did you ever have one of those advent calendars with the chocolate candies? I usually buy one for my grandies each year. This year I slacked and their parents had to buy them one.
I did however make each family one of these a couple years ago. My girls helped make some of the ornaments.
That same year I made this advent calendar with playing cards. My friend Joyce, saw it in her Mary Janes Farm magazine. It’s hard to tell in the picture, but the playing card is behind each number.
I covered a piece of foam board with tea dyed sheet music. The cards and accents are held in with decorative pins.
I also made this large linen Pottery Barn copycat to hang in my bedroom. I hung snow and winter themed ornaments.
I know what you’re thinking, “how many advent calendars does one person need?” lol! I admit, I had a bit of an advent fetish that year.
One things for sure, I certainly won’t miss Christmas!
The S stands for SNOW and SANTA. Here’s hopin that both arrives on the 24th.
Have fun counting the days!
Don’t forget our ‘Creating Christmas’ party will start on the 3rd.
I will be sharing with:Alderberry Hill for Make the Scene Monday
