My whimsical advent calendar.....

I had to laugh at myself...Where is the girl saying to her dubious boyfriend : I don't feel like decorating for Christmas, I don't feel like celebrating Christmas...come on let's go to Tangers and get lost in the medina !". Well, since then I completely changed my mind and am now converted into a fervent Christmasaholic person. I even started an advent calendar for the first time in my life. I guess, I'll blame it on my elder sister. She loves Christmas traditions and prepares an advent calendar every year with her kids. I don't know whether she'll like mine though. Again, it might not be very practical ! You see my calendar is a series of little boxes, so you can't really hang it somewhere.


Each little box is festive in its own way and contains a little surprise. Dec 1st is about being a child again and reads the lines of a poem recited at the beginning of one of my favorite Wim Wenders movies Wings of desire : als das kind kind war, fragtete er warum bin ich, warum bist du du ? (sorry to bore you with the German text but I just love it ! when the child was a child, he asked why are you you ? and why am I, I ?). Actually I wrote the lines in French.

Dec 2nd gently says Hello, Christmas is on its way....Wish you a golden day

Dec 3rd reminds you to have a heart and be passionate

Dec 4th whispers Come on baby, time to fill your fridge with some bubbly drinks

Dec 5th, oh...no...you start panicking, planning dinners and tea parties and you broke a plate

Dec 6th.... you have guests and feel like wearing gold and pearls

Dec 7th....you think you deserve a medal for being calm and carry on working, decorating, baking, doing the laundry, dusting, preparing a list of movies to watch during the holiday, shouting at your other half for not being cooperative enough

Dec 8th...shit you broke another plate

Dec 9th.....you've been a good girl...you entirely deserve a Monchéri

that is...the sweet
Dec 10th....is not there yet......

to be continued....

Never thought it would be so much fun to make an advent calendar !

P said...

So amazing! I love it. I would be so excited to open each little box.

Scarlet said...

If this is what an advent calendar looks like, then I want one. I'm not sure if I want to make one, but I want one!

PS - Not only do I break plates, I have 4 out of 6 wine glasses left after Thanksgiving dinner!

I LOVE your advent calendar! (It is the kind of thing that I would like to do for a friend, but it takes a bit of planning to do it all in time for the 1st of Dec!) I really love your style ...

Gabbi said...

I love your advent calendar! It had me when you quoted 'Der Himmel über Berlin'...I love that film. Whenever someone takes a photo of me I remember the part of the poem 'and made no faces when photographed' :) I look forward to seeing the rest of your calendar! Stop breaking your dishes :)

i love these--i want to open one!

Thank you so much for popping by my blog. I love your advent calendar 'box' idea; it is one of the best I have seen. Next year, I am adopting that. I was in Granada this past spring. The weather was really bad but the area is fabulous.

kendalee said...

Looking lovely! And it is fun. I usually make an advent calendar but the 1st snuck up on me this year and now it feels too late. So I'll just enjoy yours... Thank you for sharing it! :)

Very nice calendar- sure to make someone very happy! Wonderful and a great reason to be Christmassy even is it is a hoilday of exhaustion. Your other option sounds very good, as well. The boxes are so clever. They could be a countdown to anything. Super!

willow said...

I love "why are you, you and why am I, I?" And the panic and broken plates. I am at the panic stage right now! :P

tangobaby said...

ohmygoodness! That is the most creative and wonderful little idea! You must be having a great time thinking about what you'll design next!

Erin Sledd said...

This is delightful! I have been thinking of designing an advent calendar myself . . . maybe something based on the 12 days of Christmas (partially because I don't know if I'll ever get around to doing one for the entire month)

Can't wait to see the rest of it!! Such a great idea.

This is great! I'd suggest putting double-sided tape on the backs and sticking them to a wall.

High Desert Diva said...

I think this is the best advent calendar I've ever seen.

The broken plates...ha!

Esti said...

Un calendario maravilloso!!

Comedy Goddess said...

That Advent calendar is genius!
So glad I found you.

Jojo said...

These are wonderful and so creative. I have to say I do enjoy the chocolate calendars just to get the candy treat bu there are fewer calories with yours!

Relyn said...

You are so creative. Every time I stop by, I am awed by your artful, beautiful life. I can't wait to see more of your lovely advent calendar. I think Sloane and I might have to begin your tradition next year. Ours might be a bit more teddy bears and candy canes, though. She is only seven.

Kim said...

could not love your advent calender more. and, i love where you live. it is one of the most beautiful, romantic places in the world. lucky you and your muse! i'm a fan of your blog as well now that i found it.

Lamy said...

Wow! I really love it! It's creative and original. If I had to choose which box is more beautiful, I would be in trouble...hehe Congratulations!
