Le Calendrier de L'Avent - { Advent Calendar }

♪ On the eighth day of Christmas my true love gave to me (o.k. a bit late I know!)...

♪ vintage sheet fat quarters.... doilies from the op shop... ♪

♪ frayed scraps of linen .....5 blissful hours!!! ♪

♪ yummy vintage buttons... the trusty old Jan...coloured doilies from here

and lace brought home from Paris in my shoes! ♪

Did you sing along? Wishing you the jolliest of Christmas preparations. Ho,ho,ho!!!

(I doubled the bunting pieces and stitched them together to make little pockets/bags which I will fill with choccies, pencils, a christmas biscuit cutter, some crafty goodies, wee little cars and other snippets of festivity for my girl)
