A couple of weeks ago someone happened to mention they were looking forward to my advent posts. Oh... I thought I might not do it this year was my reply. But then I just happpened to notice that if I do a daily blog post throughout December as I have done for the past three years by the time we get to 24th December I will have written exactly 1000 posts. Got to be done really hasn't it? And if you stick with me throughout the month there will be recipes, possibly a tutorial or two and there could well be some sort of giveaway to round up the celebrations .
This is a season of traditions and it has become something of a tradition for me to post a photo of our advent calendar on the 1st December each year. But this year I give you someone else's advent calendar.
This was a commission I made for a friend's daughter, which was delivered a couple of weeks ago. I had made one very similiar to our own, featuring angels, for her first daughter, so this was made to match but be slightly different. This time the hand appliqued panel features the three Kings delivering gifts.
But I don't like to break with tradition so I'll show you our calendar too... hanging up today with twenty four little bags filled with a daily chocolate treat for each of the adults in my house!
Are we the only house of adults who have an advent calendar?
