This is my daughters and is the first one I made, about 23 years ago, it did have little metal rings onto which we hung ribbons and as you took them off every day the christmas story unfolded. As you may see they left rust marks on it so I removed them.
This is a real hotch potch, it started off as a wall hanging and sort of evolved into this! This is the one I would most like to change.
Still, the advent fairy still flies every night even though two of the recepients are not here...as does the tidy fairy, who for many years has left a tiny sweet on the pillow of a tidy room!
