Lovely Things

I am blown away by the talent of my friend Annie from the blog Lovely Things.  You do read her blog, don't you? She never ceases to amaze me with the things she comes up with.  I swear she needs her own TV show or column in a magazine, she is that good!   

You all remember her advent calendar she made last year, right?  All I can say is 'brilliant'.  

Here's what she came up with this year.  How lovely above the fireplace with the gorgeous glassybabys all a glow! She even made her own wreaths!!!  

Here's a little more detail of each bag filled with gifts.

Not only is she a pro at advent calendars, take a look at the gift tags she made this year with a photo of her kids! You can read the steps on how to create them by clicking here.  I may need to give this one a try, too!


Thank you, Annie, for your endless inspiration.  I look forward to each and every one of your posts!
