Over the weekend I finished this advent calendar mainly for Anya, who is 3, but also for my two step sons when they come to stay with us. Every envelope contains 3 chocolate coins plus small surprise for A. Stickers, beads, hair clips, crayons etc. I can't wait for her to start opening it. Boys are already 13 & 17 and although they didn't want to miss the chocolate, Christmas is not such a big deal for them anymore. But Anya loves it. We wrote a letter and drew a picture for Father Christmas yesterday, left it  by fireplace last night and to her surprise it wasn't there this morning! It's all getting exciting again through her little eyes...

  6. This is beautiful! I just finished our advent calendar too - just in time. I wish I had seen this one first. I used small paper bags, but I love the envelopes.

  7. Wow. This is SO beautiful!! What a gorgeous way of celebrating advent.
    May I ask you something, in a photo on your etsy shop you have what looks like a black lamp next to a teal velvet armchair, may I ask where the lamp is from?!
