Daisy had an appointment with the Man in the red suit, which I think Nanna was the most excited about, on Saturday afternoon......LOL....she was not impressed with Santa and hung onto me for dear life!
It's time today to get our advent calendars hung up. Tomorrow is none other than December 1st and my Christmas countdown will begin in earnest. As I have done every year I have bought my daughter and son their's and also one for little Daisy.
I like the traditional German ones but these are the ones I have bought for my babies.
Below is Daisy's, she watches the snowman all year round and this is sure to be a hit. Incidentally I add glitter to all their calendars before I give them...Christmas memories of mine again. These photos are all pre glittered.
and mine...I had ones like this for my 1960s childhood....I'm so glad that they are reproducing these vintage advent calanders.
I shall be searching for window Number 1 today.
My card today is a cute but vintage inspired one. I coloured up the angel blonde just like my darling Daisy Jane using one of my new Lili of the Valley Christmas stamps......I adore their Christmas images. I used Promarkers, highlighting with some Prismacolor pencil.
