IF you bought an advent house this year....

Where did you get it/share pics? I have one from costco from years back but it's like almost 3 feet tall. I am actually hoping to find one on clearance after Christmas for my DS to use year round. He is fascinated with the little doors, but this is too tall to leave out (and narrow, so it tips over) for him to put little things in and so forth. TIA!

I was GONNA post mine until I looked them up. I've never seen any like my search brought up. Mine is just a simple cream colored one from restoration hardware.

Wow, I've never seen those before they're beautiful! My kids have chocolate throw away calendars this year.

I bought the boys theirs from Target years ago. Not sure if they have them this year or not.



You can see them on the hearth here. We are actually using Lego advent calenders this year because my mom found them on clearance after Christmas last year and my boys are obsessed with Lego but we will use these again next year. I love them.

I have never had one so I googled for pics and pulled up this- it reminds me of the one on the Christmas Vacation movies:

It is very nice and I was interested until I realized it costs $2K!
