Christmas Vacation

I have the advent house from Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation.


It's all set up and ready for December 1st.


I'll show you each door as I open it.


Here are a couple easy wreaths to make.


Using old or new colored bulbs, hot glue them to a plain evergreen wreath.


I vary the size of the bulbs.


These are throw aways at the end of the holiday so buy inexpensive bulbs.


They also look wonderful done in golds and silvers.

You have the advent house from Chevy Chase's Christmas Vacation? Now I am green with envy... That's SO cool! Will you share a picture of each day's scene? Pretty please?!

Hugs,

Oh boy! Yule-time at your house--I'm all for it! I love to watch the seasons pass through your eyes. You have a wonderful way of creating the alternate universe we should all live inside of. It's like coming home and finding comfort and security. All your work is greatly appreciated. Love the advent calendar--wickedly cool! That's one of my favorite Xmas movies!

Advent house? I know only about advent calendar which I like a lot :)
The wreaths look great, I haven't made one for myself since last few years :/ I think it's time to change that :]

Hello,

I lost my Advent House to fire a year ago. Have been unable to find a replacement. If you ever consider selling yours, I would give three times what you paid. If any interest contact 806-259-3886.

Thanks, Davis
