Advent calenders come in many sizes and shapes, but the type we're featuring today is one of my favorites, the brightly colored and decorated free-standing house. Of course long time readers of the blog know I have a fondness for paper houses anyway so this fits right in with that interest. This house was assembled back in the '80s when I was still in Germany and I'm surprised it has lasted so long. I s'pose it could use with a little bracing but it's still a nice decoration. At 7 3/4" (19.7cm) W x 5 1/4" (13.3cm) D x 9 1/2" (24.1cm) H it's a little large to call a putz house, unless your Christmas putz or train garden is going to be a large one. We like it though so Enjoy!
