23 days to go! The house is a holiday disaster! We drug out all the decor tonight and currently it is in a huge pile on the den floor. But the tree made it inside! It’s a pretty NC grown Frasier Fur. Still needs lights and ornaments, but it has the prettiest skirt, if I do say so myself. You can find the pattern to knit your own, here.
Way back in the holiday closet I found this cute Advent calendar, it was already showing the 2nd, perfect timing! My kids love counting down the days, and I thought this was a cute way to do it that didn’t involve candy. They disagreed, so we also do one with chocolate! It’ll be up tomorrow, and before anyone worries, I forked over the Hershey Kisses yesterday and today!
The little nutcracker was handmade by my Uncle Bob almost 30 years ago, he made an army of them. I was a little girl at the time, but he saved one for me until I got married. It needs some fresh cotton on the front this year to keep it looking perfect.
Tomorrow I hope to tackle some crafting in addition to unwrapping more family treasures! How’s your decorating going?
