The Advent House

I haven’t had an Advent calendar in a long time, so when I remembered this Advent house, left for us by the previous tenant, I knew I wanted to do something fun with it for Kurt.

[SPOILER ALERT: Kurt – do not look at the photo. It will give away future items in the advent house]

So I filled it with his favorite candies and other small edibles, of course, but also with holiday quotes and other slips of paper that I can’t tell you the contents of, since Kurt also reads the blog and I don’t want to spoil any surprises, but it’s a little combination of naughty and nice.

Filling the advent house with quotes, love notes, photos and candy.

Each morning when he is getting ready to leave for work, he gets to open the date and take the contents.

And for me, all the fun is in filling the numbers and thinking of ways to surprise and delight him with something different.

Just thought I’d share my latest bit of dorky fun.

Love, Marla

  1. Glad you could make good use of the little house Marla….. Hope you and Kurt are very happy there and have a wonderful first Christmas πŸ™‚ – Fiona

    • Thanks Pierr, I’m so excited for him to discover some of the items. Since the drawers in the house are small, some notes tell him to look in another drawer of the house, or see me for his gift, etc. <3
