i ♥ this ~ advent calendar

i know i just posted about my halloween, and i've skipped over thanksgiving, but i really wanted to share this with you. i promise to move back and cover thanksgiving before anymore christmas related posts!

growing up we had a "countdown to christmas" calendar, that i loved soo much. i would always try and get up earlier than my sisters so i could move the little mouse! i really had no idea that these calendars are common, and who knew they are actually called advent calendars. *mom ~ i blame you for not explaining the real meaning! :)* 

anyway, i figured all of this out when i was searching for the perfect one for our bungalow. i checked out lots of styles, but as soon as i saw the advent calendar that is handmade by pilosale on etsy, i fell head over heels in ♥.

isn't it soo cute? i love the little teddy bear, and pretty much everything else about it.

if i can't convince the mister to let me buy it... i might have to embark on a little diy project. :)

p.s. sorry to any readers who are not ready to look at holiday decor yet! i realize november just got here, but i can't help myself this year.

I used to love getting a new Advent calendar every year as a kid. None were as beautiful as this one though.
