we're having all kinds of fun at flying carousel headquarters this week wrapping presents, writing out christmas cards, baking cookies and watching holiday specials. i thought it would be fun to share a few images of our very own little charlie brown christmas tree and some of the cute, vintage ornaments we've inherited over the years.
we made some popcorn garland over the weekend to add some "snow" and are having lots of fun with this simple spool advent calendar i put together for my sweetie. every day, he's got to hunt around on the tree for the spool ornament with the correct number; wrapped around each is a clue to where a little treat or gift is hidden. i really love advent calenders and all the excitement they build-up for christmas - this twist on the old holiday tradition has entailed a bit more work but it's well worth it.
i also love the opportunity to pull out my robert sabuda holiday pop-up books to look at while sipping on hot tea by candlelight. there's so much wonder and enchantment in the world of pop-ups and these gorgeous books are filled with some of the most interesting and innovative pop-ups around. we even had our first snowfall of the year this week which makes being indoors with the lights, the tree and the trimmings all the more cozy.
i hope you are feeling cozy and bright this holiday season!
