How lucky am I?





Last Christmas my lovely sister made me a gorgeous advent calendar out of normal matchboxes and filled it with little treats, small sweets that would fit and pairs of earrings etc....I was over the moon with it. So, you can imagine my joy this year when she presented me with a giant version, made with the extra large matchboxes....just look at it, its a stunner! Its been filled with some scrumptious sweets and small phials of various perfumes and I LOVE IT!!!!! The little one next to it is last years one.

So, thinking I would be sneaky and surprise her I asked if I could borrow last years one to fill for her for this year, but all the time I was actually planning to make my own one for her. Well here is my effort. And whilst I am happy with it, its not a patch on the stunning one she made me....but she liked it which is the most important thing :). Some of the pressies were too big for the drawers, so I made little gift tag messages for her telling her to pick a pressies from the bag and I popped them all into a sparkly gift bag lol. So, Donna, thanks so very much Hun, you are an absolute darling and I am so lucky to have you for my sister...love you..xxxxx

  1. They are all really beautiful - I made myself one a couple of years ago and get it out every year now. Must think about making a larger one and then I can fit more chocolate in each day LOL!!

  5. They are absolutely stunning Anita. Yours is beautiful and I am sure Donna was tickled pink but I think her large one is absolutely fantastic. I think I may see if I can start making one now for next Christmas!! What a very clever family you are. xxx
