One of my favorite Christmas memories from my childhood was the old felt tree advent calendar that we pulled out each year. Do you remember the ones with the snap on ornaments??
So when I found these little numbered tags (that went up to 25) at the Junk Bonanza a couple of years ago...to me they were always "meant to be" for advent.
(Not sure what they were originally?? Maybe cow tags?)
After finishing my "Tree of Gratitude" for Thanksgiving...I finally got around to pulling it all together. Better late than never??
I ordered these little canvas bags from Save-on Crafts and I printed out the little slips from a link I found on Pinterest. Then I added treats and a magnet made from a vintage earring for each day.
My kids get excited to open their "package" each day to add it to our "tree".
And on Christmas day there will be a special message...
...and a star to add to the top :)
Hopefully my kiddos will enjoy this for years to come...and remember the real meaning of Christmas...

We're almost done decorating...but truthfully I'm never really "done" decorating. Part of the fun for me is switching things up and add things here and there. I'll show you what I've been up to...as soon as I clean up the trail of glitter and greens...everywhere :)
"Happy December" everyone...
The most "wonderful time of the year"!!
