Advent

 

 

 

The week-end after Thanksgiving is the week-end that our home begins preparing...
Preparing for Christmas Gatherings...
With Friends and Families...
Preparing for Times of Giving and Sharing....
Preparing for Remembering...
I placed the Advent wreath outside my door this year...
As a Reminder of the Anticipation while we prepare......

The first Preparations began before the greens were hung...

A simple white platter was marked...
With...
A simple line drawing...

Pebeo Porcelaine 150 Paints were used for the line drawing...
The drawing was allowed to dry for 24 hours...
Then....
The platter was set directly on the oven rack that was heated to 300 degrees...
Baked for 30 minutes...
The oven door was opened and the platter allowed to cool in the oven...


 

The child-like Anticipation prepares us for the Arrival.

Blessings, Becky

  1. Becky I love this! I love the simplicity of it, the bright colors and the fact that it’s handmade! I haven’t tried anything like this…but I will!

  2. this is quite lovely! : )

  3. The platter is lovely but it was the advent wreath with the house numbers on the candles that stole my heart. I will be featuring them tonight on this week’s Motivated Monday. Please check out the Holiday Highlights linky parties on BeColorful this week too.
