Christmas Advent Calendar and Type Font Drawer

It's that time of year's crafty Christmas time!

Jenny and I grew up on Advent Calendars during Christmas when we were little. Ours came from the store and the candy tasted terrible! But, it was always exciting to get our Advent Calendar in the mail from our grandmother!

This year I decided to make my own little advent calendar with candy! A few weeks ago we went to the Country Living Fair in Atlanta and I found a vintage Type Font Drawer. I knew I wanted to use that for my homemade advent calendar.
Type Font Drawer
After looking on Pinterest for advent ideas I found a really cute blog for free printables! Oh Happy Day has the cutest ideas, along with all kinds of free printables. I chose the flags for my Advent Numbers, but she has multiple other advent printables available. 

Print the numbers out, cut and use double sided tape to apply the numbers on the type font drawer (or whatever you are using).

Under the numbers place a piece of candy (my favorite is the Hershey Kiss Candy Cane Kisses!)

I also made a banner for my advent calender that just says "Christmas" but..."25 Days" would make a cute banner too!

Here is the finished product...

 I just used things around my house, so this cost me nothing! I think my Advent Calender turned out pretty cute. Now, go be creative with things around your house and make your Advent Calendar!

DIY Lamp: Chalk Paint and Burlap

I have had this lamp FOREVER! It did not fit any of my decor anymore, so instead of buying a lamp, I just changed the one I had. It saved me about $80-$100.


Here is how the lamp got a new face lift:

Step 1. Chalk Paint- 
Mix Plaster of Paris (find at Lowes or Home Depot) with the paint color of your choice to make chalk paint. I mixed about two tablespoons of the Plaster of Paris to about two tablespoons of water then added about one cup of paint. Mix together and you have chalk paint.

Step 2: Paint-
I ended up painting 3 coats of the chalk paint. It dries very fast.

Step 3: Cover Lampshade-
I used burlap from a burlap bag I purchased last year that already had print on it. Use a hot glue gun or fabric glue- I used a hot glue gun.

Step 4: Let Dry
Let the paint dry thoroughly. Place newly covered lampshade on newly painted base and you have a new lamp!  


New Lamp
I hope it inspires you to DIY some old lamp! It was almost effortless. 

Happy Wednesday!

Bridal Shower at The Swan Coach House in Buckhead

Last weekend, my aunt and grandmother hosted a shower for me at the historic Swan Coach House in Atlanta. The Sawn Coach House is the epitome of a southern ladies luncheon spot. I can't get enough of the floral patterns that cover the walls and chairs of this southern restaurant.  It is a tradition in our family to host bridal luncheons here, I hope to continue it for my sweet little nieces one day...far far away! If you are ever in Atlanta, you have to make this one of your stops.
