Can You Believe Today Is Advent I?

Can you believe that today is Advent I?

Wasn’t Thanksgiving just a few minutes ago?

I really don’t like it when the calendar does this trick of making the Sunday after Thanksgiving the beginning of Advent but here it is nevertheless.

Nothing to do but run out to The Antique Shops of Jackson to pick up my favorite Advent candles…

the candles are pure beeswax and are fashioned by professional chandlers.

Last year daughter was gifted the beautiful glass angel and I found the mirrored tray (again at The Antique Shops of Jackson) so the decision was made to forgo the traditional advent wreath of greenery and candles…

 I like the simplicity of this and also the fact that I do not have to replace dried out greenery each week!

The angel will hold the white candle for Christmas Day…

Hoping that you have a glorious advent season…

    This post truly made my day. You cann’t imagine simply how

  3. Hey there, I think your site might be having browser
    compatibility issues. When I look at your blog in Chrome,
    it looks fine but when opening in Internet Explorer, it has some overlapping.
    I just wanted to give you a quick heads up! Other then that, awesome blog!
