Advent Time...

Hey Everyone...

I can't believe I missed the 1st December! Unfortunately I still have an icky cold, and last night I popped out to have a quick meet up with a new work friend, which was such a lovely break from a long week of feeling rubbish!

I was hoping to post on the 1st of December, the beginning of advent, to show you all my advent calendars! But better late than never as they say...


This is my chocolate advent calendar! A lovely old fashioned one from the olde sweet shop Mr.Simms! I love that the chocolates match the pictures behind them! Day one was a candle with pine cones, and today was a toy train!


And this is my homemade advent calendar! I made lots of little pouches, and used the little pegs from Tiger that I talked about here to peg them onto some Christmassy ribbon! I then asked the fiance to fill each little pouch for me, and he has kindly obliged.

So...

On the first day of Advent the fiance gave to me...


Four Chocolate Snowballs!
(They were eaten too quickly for the picture! Ha!)

On the Second day of Advent the fiance gave to me...


A reel of pink thread!

...And four chocolate snowballs.

Do you get the idea? I am going to bore you all with my little presents each day and create my own little advent song! I hope you don't mind!

I am chuffed with my little gifts so far and excited to uncover the rest! What are you all doing for Advent?

  1. Haha fab! I managed to remember where I put the girls advent calenders but I can't for the life of me remember where I stashed mine!! I'll probably find it over Easter!
