Your Advent Calendar πŸŽ„ Day 24

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

This is a bittersweet moment for me. It’s the last door of the Advent Calendar- I’m gonna miss sharing these special stories with you, but, at the same time, I’m happy because Christmas Eve is a day spent talking, laughing, eating with my wonderful family. 😍

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


On this last day I’d like to show you my Christmas decorations πŸ₯°πŸŽ„

My Christmas village with carousel

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

The β€˜Winter Wonderland’ in the living room 😊
My antique buffet I brought with me from Germany turns into an eclectic display during the winter months ⛄️
I found this beautiful painting at our local Antique Mall 😍

I wish you a wonderful Day, and hope you get to spend it with people you love! ❀️

To say it with the words of Bruce Springsteen β€œHappy Christmas, happy New Year, happy Birthday, happy rest-of-your-life” πŸ˜ŠπŸ’•

Your Advent Calendar πŸŽ„ Day 22

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

Today you’ll find an idea for a β€˜Christmas Morning Game’ πŸŽ…πŸΌ I’m not sure if it’s meant to be a fun pastime or a β€˜Things are going too well and peaceful…let’s play a game’ suggestion πŸ˜…

I’m gonna open the door, and let you decide 😁

Take a look…

What do you think? πŸ˜‰

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

Your Advent Calendar πŸŽ„ Day 21

Hello my lovely friends πŸ’•

The countdown to Christmas is coming to an end. Hopefully all the gifts are bought and wrapped, meals planned, visiting relatives in place πŸ˜‰. And since laughter is the best Stress relief I thought I combine the calendar post with the β€˜Weekend Chuckle’ 😁

So let’s open the door to some smiles…

Now, sit back and relax 🀠

*walked πŸ˜‰
Every single time πŸ˜‚

That’s all I got for today πŸ€—
