sequins and stockings

This is our Maine themed advent calendar. Eliot has been getting different rubber stamps each day so far with a few marshmallows mixed in. We made our own marshmallows this weekend flavored with vanilla beans..yum! Next will be peppermint. I am experimenting with some flavored sugars.

Eliot's Christmas stocking is now hanging up on our mantle where there used to be a fireplace and now is a radiator- close enough, ay? We got our tree up this weekend and it smells so good. We decorated it with the cast offs and childhood ornaments of my youth. Some are pretty funny, ie Santa in a track suit. I will have to share some photos.

I am trying to find ways to incorporate sequins into everything. I may have to make myself a sequin winter hat.

I LOVE your advent calendar!!! What a beautiful idea. I still have never tried homemade marshmallows -- but I need to! Sounds so fun.

I mailed Adeline's birthday present on Monday and can hardly wait for her reaction. I found some cute heart buttons for the jackets and used velcro as a fastener, as buttons or snaps would be hard for two year old fingers.
I enjoy your blog; it keeps me in touch.
