Countdown to Christmas

Christmas is fast approaching and I really love this time of year especially decorating the house!  I haven't had an advent calender for a few years now but I spotted this lovely one over at Cox and Cox which is I may just invest in.  It would look really cute against the green walls of our kitchen...  Oh and its even half price at the moment!

Or why not have a go at making one,like this cute one here made with clothes pegs! Its super simple to make and you can even download templates for the numbers.  Click over to this lovely blog for the full tutorial.

Finally why not try something different by hiding treats inside these paint tins like this. This looks so stylish and you can hide some great treats inside. Use the mini tester pots sprayed white for a chic effect or just use regular tins! You could cover them with craft paper too?

Do you have an advent calender?
