It's only a few days until the beginning of December so I have been scrabbling about in difficult to reach cupboards where baby photos and Christmas decorations live. It's not time for full on fairy lights and Christmas trees, but our family tradition is to bring out the CDs, DVDs, story books and Advent calenders for the first of December.
First is the Playmobil Calender.
Each little animal is returned to its numbered box in January ready to join the scene for Christmas. I'll take another photo when it fills up.
It really is a beauty. I bought it for the Christmas after my lovely girl was born while I was working in Germany.
The second I made from a pre-printed fabric the same year and I fill the pockets with sweeties and small gifts. It hangs at the end of the kitchen. Of course since lovely boy came along two chocs need to fit in each pocket.
I'll leave you with a photo of the woolly baubles, I have another commission for yet more- who would have thought they would be so popular ? I've made 20 already!
