So to try and get me (and you) in the mood, I'm putting up some pics of advent calendars. I must say I've never seen anything as stylish as these little numbers in any shops around here, but I'll keep my eye out anyway.
The first picture is from http://www.marthastewart.com/ while the rest are from German company http://www.impressionen.de/shop/home, which I found after a reference to it at http://anetteshus.blogspot.com/
This first one would be easy to make - buy some kids socks in Christmas colours, embroider on some numbers and hang from a string by little wooden pegs (I have the pegs at least!).
Cute as a button train
I love this one - so simple and pure
This last one is absolutely gorgeous and if you have a gorgeous ladder just lying around your home, this would be perfect.
I'm finishing off with a non- Christmas picture. Now that I have taken up the hobby of blogging, my book reading and magazine reading has suffered. Just look at all the reading I have been neglecting! Problem is, I still can't resist buying - in fact I have two more books winging their way to me as we speak. Now I just have to find the time to read them.
We are having a barbeque with friends this weekend, then off to a fashion and food fair on Sunday. Gotta love summer! Hope your weekend is great.
