Something old, something new and definitely not blue (anymore). I made an advent calendar last year for a class I was teaching, thinking I was going to give it away as a gift. I knew it didn't match my house style (a bit too rustic and lots of blue), but it was perfect for the class. Well, I selfishly decided to keep it. So, I changed the numbers and took out the middle (since I had never glued it down permanently). I finished a Dusty Attic advent insert this year so that it now matches my house a bit more. My Chrismas colours are burgundy, pink, white and gold. I think this will do.
