Would you believe that this sweet paper cottage is also an advent calendar?
I love to countdown to Christmas with an advent calendar and have decorated my house with many cute ones over the years. Remember the one I made with scrapbook paper?
I bought this pastel advent house years ago (by artist Camilla Ashforth for her illustrated series about a bear named, Willow) and have resisted bending back the paper doors until now. It felt too pretty to open (and looks so great with my "Swedish Beach house" decorating!) that I liked having it on display just as it is. This year, though, I've decided to open each window and peek into the world of a teddy bear as he prepares for the holidays.
We have just two more days until we can open the window marked 1. Does your house have an advent calendar? If not, you can head to the nearest bookstore (or shop online for darling ones here!) and find one to help you count down the days until Christmas.
