Advent Angel

..

I decided it should be a special little angel who would guide us along the spiral path.

She greeted the girls this morning. Chessa as the youngest got to place her on the first star. Chloe is so looking forward to her turn tomorrow.

We had a simple dinner of stew and fresh baked bread. Afterward we gathered in the candlelight and read our first Advent story. Tiptoes Lightly of course, the Festival of Stones. I had a wooden bowl with some crystals in it and after the story we each chose a crystal and placed it around the Advent Spiral.

And the loveliest soft snow fell all day long.

She's perfect for your little girls, they must have been so happy to see her on your beautiful little spiral. We to have a little wood peg angel, I made a couple of years ago, I will need another next year. I made a little spiral just like yours except I didn't have enough felt to make the stars so I had to needle felt them on and it's not as neat. Our advent bags are up now I just have to find things to fill them every evening.
Have a wonderful advent time, it was so nice to receive your email. Sending you all much lovexxx
