When Tesco last sold their wooden Advent Houses I had a spooky feeling and bought about eight, just in case they didn’t (as was the case), do them again! I have four left.
I don’t think we’ll ever see the likes of them again …. not made of wood and not for £5! There are plain versions available from various craft shops online but oh my life the price!!!!! However, I always keep my eye out in shops like M & S just in case they have one that can be “altered”, but I think £8 would be my limit, and I know that’s really pushing it!!!
I am “making” a new Advent House for my friend’s son Jacob, who she adopted in April, he is an absolute angel, and the luckiest boy ever to have Sarah for a mum, just thinking of them together brings a tear to my eye. Years before Jacob arrived Sarah saw my Advent House and made me promise her that if ever she had a child I would make her one …… I can’t tell you how wonderful it feels to be finally keeping that promise.
I am going to try and decorate the house in much the same way as mine, but there are a few things like the resin snowflakes that I don’t think I will be able to find again …. so need to look for a substitute.
I am also hoping that when Marc sees this it will spur him on to “do” the one I sent him ….. be it festive or otherwise …… and then perhaps he might "re-gift" it back to me as a forever treasure !!!!! I am soooooooo awful!!!
