Your Advent Calendar ๐ŸŽ„ Day 24

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

This is a bittersweet moment for me. Itโ€™s the last door of the Advent Calendar- Iโ€™m gonna miss sharing these special stories with you, but, at the same time, Iโ€™m happy because Christmas Eve is a day spent talking, laughing, eating with my wonderful family. ๐Ÿ˜

So…the door is already open (it is quite late after all ๐Ÿ˜‰)


On this last day Iโ€™d like to show you my Christmas decorations ๐Ÿฅฐ๐ŸŽ„

My Christmas village with carousel

The middle panel in the background is a quilt top ๐Ÿ˜… After many, many years I had to admit that itโ€™ll never be a quilt. So it became a drape. ๐Ÿ˜‹

The โ€˜Winter Wonderlandโ€™ in the living room ๐Ÿ˜Š
My antique buffet I brought with me from Germany turns into an eclectic display during the winter months โ›„๏ธ
I found this beautiful painting at our local Antique Mall ๐Ÿ˜

I wish you a wonderful Day, and hope you get to spend it with people you love! โค๏ธ

To say it with the words of Bruce Springsteen โ€œHappy Christmas, happy New Year, happy Birthday, happy rest-of-your-lifeโ€ ๐Ÿ˜Š๐Ÿ’•

Your Advent Calendar ๐ŸŽ„ Day 22

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

Today youโ€™ll find an idea for a โ€˜Christmas Morning Gameโ€™ ๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ Iโ€™m not sure if itโ€™s meant to be a fun pastime or a โ€˜Things are going too well and peaceful…letโ€™s play a gameโ€™ suggestion ๐Ÿ˜…

Iโ€™m gonna open the door, and let you decide ๐Ÿ˜

Take a look…

What do you think? ๐Ÿ˜‰

I hope you have everything in place for the special day ๐ŸŽ„ So that the remainder of the season (and every day after that) will be wonderful, fabulous, and sparkly ๐Ÿ’•

Your Advent Calendar ๐ŸŽ„ Day 21

Hello my lovely friends ๐Ÿ’•

The countdown to Christmas is coming to an end. Hopefully all the gifts are bought and wrapped, meals planned, visiting relatives in place ๐Ÿ˜‰. And since laughter is the best Stress relief I thought I combine the calendar post with the โ€˜Weekend Chuckleโ€™ ๐Ÿ˜

So letโ€™s open the door to some smiles…

Now, sit back and relax ๐Ÿค 

*walked ๐Ÿ˜‰
Every single time ๐Ÿ˜‚

Thatโ€™s all I got for today ๐Ÿค—

I wish you a wonderful, fabulous, sparkly Holiday season ๐Ÿ’•๐ŸŽ„๐ŸŽ…๐Ÿผ
