The Countdown Begins {Christmas Vignette & Advent Calendar}

December 2, 2014

There's nothing I love more than the holiday season....
From trimming the tree to making home made ornaments and baking cookies... all these things bring back precious memories from my childhood and there is nothing that makes me happier than creating these same memories with my children.
One thing I always remember is having an advent calendar in our home....
The old ones with the box and chocolate for each night.  I looked so forward to counting down the days until Christmas and now I get to share the exact experience with my own children... and I made sure to make it extra special.
This year I made my very own advent calendar with free a printables  from Ella Claire. The printables are super cute and really are a lot of fun and easy to use!! No special rules just do what works for your family!! Here is the advent calendar all put together and a peak at my Christmas vignette!!

So, what do you think?
I love the vintage screen I purchased off of this Etsy shop!
It came just in time and the super cute red and white French stripped ribbon came from this Etsy shop was the perfect added touch!! Could not be more happy with how this all turned out!! Be sure to check in next week for my Cozy Christmas Holiday Home Tour!!
Thanks for stopping by!!
