Advent Calendar Day 12

Those of you who follow my blog are going to be really tired of me today with three posts. I didn't bother taking a photo of the outside of the box, because you probably saw it yesterday. The numbers are vinyl letters.

Inside is where the fun is today. Scrabble tiles spell out the word "Fly," a couple of bird feathers stick around for good measure, and the entire word is written on a wooden cube that has five other words on it. Not sure what kind of game it is from, but I thought it went well with the rest of the composition.

And with the sun glaring on the pieces, I decided a wider view was in order. I hope you don't fly away before you have another look. And yes, there will be a Silent Sunday post, still at the Cowtown Museum. Also, prepare for the the opening of the 12 Days of Christmas Swap, Group One, which will begin tomorrow. But don't worry. I'll not leave you hanging on this calendar. You'll see all 25 Days as I open them.

I am going to leave this message and picture ad nauseum because I want everyone to know that I am unable to leave comments on any Blogger blog that displays comments like this. It appears that I would not even be able to leave comments on my own blog. I can leave them when the little box next to "comments:" has my name (Bleubeard and Elizabeth) showing, but not on the ones with the small empty box. So if you don't hear from me, you will know why. I am going to "Blogger help" to see if there are any answers to this problem. It just started this week, although some of my UK friends have had the problem for awhile, now. If anyone can help or knows how to correct the problem, please, please let me know.

This is fun opening your box and seeing the latest discovery--can you believe that 12 days have passed already!!
P.S. Blogger has been really teasing you, hasn't she--notice I said she--only a female could be this moody.

What a calendar this is! Wonderful and a surprise every day. Love your Peace-themed mixed media piece below and hope your Blogger glitches work out. xxoo

see you there! said...

I've been checking in every day. Love "Fly". I had trouble with getting blogger to let me allow comments a couple of days ago. I wonder what's up with them. Hang in there until help comes through.

Love Diane's comment above. Yes, "she" can be a nuisance and only a "she" would tease you this way.

I am really enjoying seeing you open the tiny boxes. Each one holds a fun surprise. So..what will number 13 bring, I wonder?
