Se7en’s Natural Treasure Advent Calendar Week 1…

December 9th, 2014 · 5 Comments

A week of Advent has passed us by… so far our Christmas preparations have amounted to… making a list of things that we might do; traditions we want to keep up and folk we would love to have over; gifts we can create for friends without actually shopping… because much as we love gifting, shopping is not our first love; and well blogging… lots of half written blog posts, and every time I have sat down to finish a post the lights have gone out. Literally. Honestly, I am not complaining, power outages really do stop us in our first world tracks. Instead we are forced to take afternoon naps and have bedtime stories by torchlight. And of course it is December, so a boardgame a day… as we do. Clearly my gang have priorities for the month of December: boardgames and books and an unforgettable Christmas celebration thrown into the mix. Sounds perfect to me, and I am happy to go with the flow.

Our Tree So Far…

I imagine our little drift would tree will be exploding with natural treasures by the time we reach the 24th December… and for those of you that don’t follow along on instagram (hello mom!!!) I thought I would post an update of our Advent tree…

From the Beginning

We began with a plain, driftwood tree… hung up in the courtyard, and every day we search for a natural treasure to add to it. We have heaps around the house, of course, I live with collectors… and little treasures do sneak home after almost every walk.
