My Advent Calendar

 Happy First Sunday of Advent!

 Let our Hope Begin! 

What a wonderful time of year

 counting down the coming of our Lord's birth! ♥

Thought I'd pop in and share the cutest

 Advent calender

our eldest Evelyn made us a few years ago.

It is a tree shaped wooden holder for wee clay "ornaments"

that are stamped with numbers 1-24!

 Isn't it just adorable?

It's got a farmhouse/Scandy/natural vibe

that fits in perfectly with the way I am decorating this year!

I used my Rae Dunn "Blessed" sign with it. ♥

 So let our countdown begin!

May each day of the Advent Season
 bless each of you abundantly.

The key to a happy Advent - feeling blessed.

Blessed with a roof over our heads, food in our tummies,
love around us in friends and family, relatively good health
and freedom to worship as we wish, without fear.

As always, thank you for your visit!

Hugs and prayers,




  1. I love the advent calendar. I think it is the cutest I have seen.

  2. I love everything about this sweet advent calendar. It looks like it would be a fun project.

    Let the merry making begin!!🎄


  3. Michele, your Evelyn made a lovely advent calendar. Awaiting the hope of the world!

  4. How sweet and fun this is Michele. We do an advent calendar each year. I love the tradition. Have a great week. xoxo Kris

  5. Not only is that a great Advent calendar, but it's a great-looking piece of Christmas decor. Growing up, we always used the giving manger concept. We had a box on the mantel and Mom would let us put a piece of straw in the box each time we did some kind deed. Baby Jesus was placed in the 'manger' on Christmas day. :)

  6. Oh dearest Michele, I absolutely adore that advent calendar! Oh I want one now! I love all things Christmas but the meaning of Christmas is such a miracle and blessing isn't it? I hope that you have a great week. Hugs and blessings, Cindy
