A is for Advent

IMG_5074In New Zealand we are coming to the end of the 5th day of December which means there are 19 full days until the night before Christmas.

Counting down with Advent calendars is a particularly Christmassy thing to do

IMG_5075and there are three such calendars in this house. 

IMG_5078Two with pockets for little trinkets, treasures or goodies that this year are (guiltily) filled with chocolate and one I made…..

IMG_5076where each day a handmade ‘charm’ is hung on a green felt tree.

IMG_5077This year I went hunting for something a little ‘different’ in the advent calendar line and found this -

IMG_5082Kate and I have one each and we are loving the daily ‘colouring-in’ of the allocated picture.

This is mine.

IMG_5079 IMG_5080 IMG_5081It’s contemporary, quirky, charming, heaps of fun and best of all, free. 

IMG_5083 IMG_5084We’re only five days in so head off, download one and get stuck in. It’s buckets of Christmassy fun!!

And while you are at it – take a look at this gorgeous advent calendar…….

  1. Hi Sally – thanks so much for linking to my calendar :-)
    I love the colouring-in one you have (thank you for introducing me to Moose Allain!) but I think I would be a sucker for the ones with picnics and crunchies!
    Many Christmas wishes, Sivonne x
