Advent Calendar: December 8

For today's advent calendar post: an appreciation of the printed kind!

My mother sends me a paper advent calendar at the end of each November. All glitter and German illustrations, this annual tradition is a perfect way to count down to the holiday. Today's window (yellow) was particularly cute with two little finches on a branch mirroring the finches singing in the rain outside our window.

I love the old-fashioned, German advent calendars! Whenever we are in Solvang, I stop by the Jule-Hus and to pick up a new one. I use them throughout the years as a backdrop to my mantel decorations.
