For years our family has had a special advent calender, it is worn, well loved, and ready for retirement. I was really taken with an advent calender from last years potterybarn catalog, and so inspired came up with this design. I worked on it in the evenings after little eyes had closed for the evening. planning on having it ready to hang by December 1'st - November 30 ended up being a long night and it ended up being hung with pins holding the pockets on, but the surprise was all I hoped it would be. Finally it is done, and hanging on the wall just as I imagined. Our home is decked and snug - I think we would happily stay in until January if we could.
What about you? What are you loving about the season?
