merry christmas! advent calendar #25...

Oops... had this all ready to post but never got to the computer to publish it yesterday! Hope your Christmas was wonderful!














Okay, this one tops even the last one and at $1125. makes The Advent House look like a bargain. It's from FAO Schwartz and is no longer available but totally deserving of a post!

It's handmade from Germany and I found this description as wists:

Handcrafted and meticulously handpainted in Germany this giant solid-wood advent calendar is sure to become a treasured part of your family's Christmas tradion for generations to come. Elegant and heirloom-quality, it's sized to fit comfortably on your mantel. Children will delight in turning the windows around each day to reveal figurines inside the house. Don't just look forward to Christmas; look forward to counting down the days.

Check out some photos of the details inside at this site.

Okay, this is the one I really want! I especially love that it will fit on a mantel. What a lovely focal point, besides the tree. I would decorate everything to coordinate with this lovely piece! Do you think it will come up on ebay at a price point The Husband could live with!?!
