The Spirit of Advent

I'm finally back to earth. I was just sooo exited about my Advent calendar from dear Julia ,that I couldn't
take a decent photo! So,here they are:


The first three beautiful packages, see the Eiffel Tower key chain - which was in #2


more beautiful packages

I wonder what's inside # 13 and #20 ???

Isn't the pudding mold beautiful? Yes, it also has a gift inside

.
             I will let the photos do the talking.                                        











Thank you once again, dear Julia , for such a special swap! If you never visited Julia from Vintage with Laces
go and have a look to see all her beautiful art work. You're in for a treat.
As always, thank you for stopping by and for all your lovely comments.
Wishing you a wonderful day.

Hugs and love,

Oh dear, I would be soooooo tempted to open all the gorgeous little packages, they make great gifts by themselves.

Thank you for sharing your advent treat. You and Julia have given me some wonderful ideas for making up some packages of my own. :)

Hi Marie. I shall start with a "WOW"!!! Beautiful gifts from the heart. Completely inspirational what both of you have made for each other. Did you start on all this work one year ago LOL. So much work but so worth it. Love the gift inside the mould. What a joy to visit here to see what is hidden inside the other packages. Wishes. Lynne

How beautiful and what fun to be able to open one each day. Last year I made advent boxes for two dear friends, I had so much filling the little cubbies with goodies. They really enjoyed them also.
Hope your having a beautiful season.
