Here we go. It’s December 1st. Are you ready for the ride?
Okay, maybe that’s a little dramatic, but I can’t believe it’s December 1st already! And so that means today is the first day for advent calendars. Did you manage to put one up?
I got ours all filled and ready to go…
But when I went to hang it up I realized I didn’t know where it should go! This is the first year for us in this home, and I never really gave the calendar location much thought!
So I wandered around, and tried to envision the house fully decorated… because I’ve barely started!
Can you tell?
But it’s in the plans for this weekend 🙂
I tried to hang the calendar on our banister. It worked in our last home, but in this one, it just wasn’t right. I toyed with 6 other spots, but they all felt ho-hum. And with this home’s open floor plan, I just ran out of wall options!
We have 2 pieces of artwork hanging in the entry hallway, and space for one more…
I’ve never topped the calendar with a bow before.
But somehow it needed something extra once it was up beside the art.
It’s true, pictures don’t lie! I didn’t even see those crinkles in the bow until now.
Anyway, this is our hallway gallery now.
See why I added the bow?
And since I was trying something new, I decided to have some fun with my family, and keep the calendar’s location a secret. I wanted to see if they would notice it… you know how it is, you can walk by something a hundred times, and not even see it!
I wanted to see if they could find it on their own… And they did!
I hope your December is off to a good start 🙂 I’m looking so forward to this weekend so I can roll up my sleeves and get this place whipped into shape!
Where do you place your advent calendar? Is it the same each year?
It’s about coming home… If you want a remarkable space that tells your story, contact me to see how we can help!
