Merry Christmas

I love Advent calendars... I collected these three when we lived in Europe in the late 90's. They hold just as much charm for me now, ten years later. I always thought how much fun it would be to make a quilt patterned after the dollhouse style, pictured left. Well, that hasn't happened but it still may... one day! If you look carefully you might just find a little Hannes in one of these calendars! Awwww... Enjoy, from my home to yours. Merry Christmas, everyone~ Life is Good!

I see him, too! I took my Advent wreath (with 25 embroidered ornaments, each 2" or smaller) to work this year ~ reminded me of the years it was used here at home when the boys were growing up... co-workers were taking turns picking the ornament for each day of December... such good moments to share.

Blessings to you and yours!!

We haven't had advent calendars in years, but my daughter so enjoyed them when she was little.

Merry after-Christmas to you and yours!

Many of the paperAdvent calendars in Austria are huge - and wonderful works of art too... and almost always thrown out after Christmas. Great that you still have yours to treasure! Merry Christmas.
Cheers!

Several years ago there was a pattern for rooms of a house that looked a lot like the advent calendar! I'll see if I can find it...
