I love how filled with tradition the Christmas Season is, don't you?
No matter if it's the food we make or the decorations we use, in each of our minds there is one item, one tradition that brings a smile to our faces, gives our hearts a warm glow and we know - - FINALLY it's Christmas Time!
In our home, the symbol of good things to come is our humble Christmas Countdown Mittens.
Bits of felt and rick-rack hung on a simple jute string.
As soon as they are strung across the kitchen window the merry making can begin.
The mittens are always the first Christmas item to be set up every year and the last to be taken down. I made them years ago when my oldest was only two. This year I decided to dress up the clothes pins they are hung with. I simply glued some strips of scrapbook paper to the front of each one.
The kids thought it was a great addition and so do I.
And now that the mittens are hung,
it's officially Christmas Time!
Talk to you soon,
