It’s here, it’s the Advent Calendar! The one that I’ve been teasing with for a couple of weeks now.
Ridiculously difficult to photograph in all it’s glory, I’ve decided that close up shots are better than my quite frankly, appalling photography….!
But this gorgeous advent calendar hangs from a piece of Smoky Slate Chevron Ribbon that measures 6ft in length, and is very much going to be the show stopper decoration in your house.
Hiding many things inside, which you’ll see in the video, this is a definite keepsake. One I’m quite proud of in fact, and I hope you like it too!
