Christmas Advent Calender

 Hi Everyone
 Happy Friday
Can you feel it ...
Christmas  joy
 If you haven't already  made your Christmas advent calender yet 
its not too late.......
 Did you know that advent means arrival !!!
 Our advent calender this year has four candles to celebrate 
the four Sundays before
 This is a Swedish tradition
and is 
simple to make just place sugar in a bowl 
 {vintage white ironstone looks pretty}
add four candles and every Sunday gather the family 
and light a candle 
{ we always say what we are grateful  for when we light the candles each week}
 this time of year 
Christmas songs playing on the radio
fires in the fireplace
 blankets in every room  perfect for cuddling
We have been having  fun  making  handmade invitations for our
Christmas party
just a pink pipecleaner and a gold star
We are hosting a
* Christmas*
sing along
we will gather around the piano and sing with Joy

The Joy of 
 Christmas is contagious
*Are you feeling it too*

  5. No, in Texas it us hard to get Christmas spirit with 83 degree weather. We are hot and dry. Not normal.

  6. I always cherished lighting the Advent candles with my children, and am doing it again with my grandbabies. By the way, thank you for teaching me a new way to spell CHRISTmas - I've started doing it in all my correspondence and my friends have all commented on how much they love it!


  7. I adore that little invitation, so sweet but simple. We had lots of joy today, went caroling at a nursing home here in KC.

  8. Oh these little invitations are so simple and very sweet! I truly love them! The holidays always make me smile! Have aterrific weekend and hope your party is a huge success!

  9. Hello, I'm over from FRENCH COUNTRY COTTAGE link party and I find this interesting. Last night my Swedish friend was assisting me with tech pc issues via remote assistance and he asked me if I celebrated Advent and I didn't know what it was. He briefly told me, you light a candle for each Sunday before Xmas, and usually is accompanied by drinking glogg and eating gingerbread. I told him I would do this Sunday, today, in his honor for his help but didn't have a good visual, his description was too brief. But this is helpful and beautiful! I will also try to make some glogg too, I had it once in my life and never forgot it. Thanks for this. lady
