One of my favorite Christmas decorations is this felt advent tree
that I hang in my front hallway every year.
It has been in my family for a very looooong time.
My Mama found it at a church bazaar in the late 60's/early 70's.
It is such a perfect way to help little children count down the days til Christmas.
(The ornaments are numbered 1-25 on the reverse side.)
I'm noticing a few worn spots that need TLC.
So I'll have to perform felt and yarn surgery before I pack it away this year.
I have to keep it in good shape so it will last for another 40 years.
