This magical Keepsake Advent House contains 28 chocolates and makes a beautiful gift for Christmas. The house alone can be reused over and over again since it’s so aesthetically pleasing, and usually a house like this alone would cost an arm and a leg.

    1. Same, they look to die for! Oooh when’s your birthday? How are you celebrating it? I always say it’s not a birthday it’s a birthweek!😂😂 birthdays are too good to only celebrate it for a day😂(if you’re the recipient of the birthweek of course. If you’re not, the birthweek doesn’t count, it’s torture😂)! Thanksgiving sounds so good, family and love ones being around, what’s more to love? Haha oh really 3rd? It’s probably my favourite, maybe besides my birthday😃.
      Thankyouu so much for reading and commenting!
      Have a lovely day😊


      1. My birthday is November 9th! I’m super excited. I’m going to the food and wine Festival at Epcot. Then to Animal Kingdom to ride the Avatar Ride and the safari! Yes, I will celebrate the whole week! Have a wonderful blessed day my friend ❤🌻🦋

      2. Happy belated birthday!!! I hope you had an amazing time! Oooh I don’t think I’ve heard of the animal kingdom, it sounds so fun!
        Have a wonderful day, you too😊


    1. So glad you think so! I need to buy virtually all of them for myself!😂😂 so that’s makes two of us!

    1. My goodness, same! I could virtually have all of them! I don’t think the size of my clothes would approve though😂😂.

  1. Great Scott, Antonia, you’re making my head spin! So many awesome collections; you definitely have given me more that one gift idea. You’ve made Santa very happy

    In that spirit (as it were), one of my friends describes a wine advent calendar. Nothing too boozy – maybe half a glass-worth in each bottle – but enough to intrigue with several new experiences.

    You’ve been very good, and a diligent Christmas shopper. Perhaps an advent calendar awaits you this year.

    1. So glad you think so! Oooh I’ve heard of the wine advent calendars, unfortunately I don’t drink but I was going to put them on this post! But it didn’t really go with the foodie theme😂. Aww thankyouu! A girl can dream of a knockout advent calendar haha!

      1. You too, Antonia (though it’s past by now in the UK). A few hours left here on North America’s East Coast.

        Ironically, there goes the doorbell now. Off to feed some ghosts, princesses and super heroes…

        By the way, that brownie advent calendar looks positively diabolical. Why? Because I know myself, and here’s how it would go down… December 1 – exquisite! December 2 – even better! Would it hurt to try a little of December 3? Why not? Nobody’s going to know, and I can’t wait. Later that evening – it’s all gone, all of it. The whole month.

        Thus begins my career as a sumo wrestler.

      2. Hahaha the brownie one is a so tempting, if you take the numbers off, no one would ever know (apart from the scale) 😂😂. You should at least try and make it last 10 days haha!
        Sumo wrestling, great idea! At least you’d have an excuse to always indulge😂😂!
        Thankyouu so much for reading and commenting + making me laugh!😂
        Have a lovely day😃
