The 1st of December

Hello........ just a quick post today, it's the first day of Advent and what a lovely blue sky day it has been here at the Summerhouse. Yes today has been a little bit festive.

This morning we got the little tiny pouches out from where they have been packed away waiting all year, I do love them so.

I filled each cute like bag with a chocolate, this year 'P' is the Stars and I'm the Mistletoe Sprigs

When they were all stocked up, I hung them on the cute little numbered pegs, yes December is here the countdown has begun.............

Other than stocking up the cute little advent calender, I've had a bed rest day today after a busy day of visitors yesterday, I did make this little Jolly Holly for my Wintertime Wreath though, more on that next time.

I Just wanted to pop in really and share the first day of Winter with you all. Yes here in the UK we waved goodbye to a colourful Autumn yesterday, it officially Winter now. 

Happy Crafting

Clare xx
