Countdown to Christmas

Enjoying every day.


I hope you are too.


I made this whimsical advent calendar using a vintage clip art image I found {on Pinterest, I think} and then layered large numbers {1 through 25} in Photoshop on the image.  Then I cut them to fit a collection of mismatched ivory and white envelopes and glued them on to each envelope.  We filled the envelopes with surprises and clipped them with wooden clothes pins to a red twill ribbon garland on our stair banister.  A few extra red bows, our old Christmas stockings, cranberry sprays tied with twine, and the countdown to Christmas has begun with fun!

Ciao amici,
Suzanne

I love this idea and the font you used in your blog. I was in Italy for a month last summer and loved hearing Ciao Ciao wherever we went...
