Advent Calendar 2010

vvb's virtual
advent calendar

I enjoy opening up the little windows or doors of an advent calendar this time of year.

What special treat lies in wait?

To get into the spirit of things, I will post a virtual advent calendar of my own.

Every day (starting today), I will post an image on the top of my sidebar with a link to my favorite fellow bloggers.

Some will have treats for you, some will put smiles on your faces and some will help increase your TBR piles ;-D

    Pssst, Lady Vee,

    Mr. B. is blushing from ear to ear!
    (that is a Dutch saying...)
    Oh, and he just wispered in my ear to tell you that he love's the picture of that cute Dutch mistletoo (sp?) girl.
    He only thinks she needs a knitted shawl to keep her arms warm...
    ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ ;o) ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~>
    with ♥,

  12. Oops... *Ü*

    ... after studying the lovely picture with his magnigying-glass, Mr.B. now sends me back to you because he has to admit that the girl has no naked arms afterall...

    ... but... "a knitted shawl wouldn't hurt her", he says.

    ... silly man...

    Bye bye, I hope you have a lovely weekend.
