they swirled around people's legs
like house cats. It was magical
this snowglobe world."

I'm sure everyone is wondering where I've got to! My ancient computer has been giving me troubles lately - so much so that I have been answering my email correspondence and doing various other things at work instead of at home. Unfortunately I couldn't blog there! Here I am though and in spite of everything CHRISTMAS IS COMING!! My family and I went out and bought a new tree! It is much larger than our old one and I have been so excited to get it up and start decorating. I know it is a little bit early but I love, love, love Christmas. I have been so happy and eager to see the decorations going up in the shops and to start planning presents and fun surprises. Christmas is so WONDERFUL!!! I am also very excited to have reached 400 followers! Thankyou so much everyone for your support and for the kind words of encouragement that you always give to me. Here are a few photographs of the beginnings of my Christmas decorations. Stay tuned for more! P.S. I have also included a photo of a corner of one of my latest commissions that I love! :)

Hello, I'm writing from far away, from Spain, I love your holiday details, I too am a lover of Christmas. Please visit my blog, you'll like it, I posted my Christmas cake with gum paste flowers. Enorabuena for your precious decorations.ReplyDelete

OMG I am drooling over all this loveliness.ReplyDelete
oh how funny, I just commented yesterday to you on a post you made a year ago about a Pink Christmas, and here are some new pics....I was so inspired I went to Michaels to pick up what pale pink I could find, and of course there was not much and so as usual I'll have to make something and figuring out to make gorgeous pink shiny ornaments is another project. But your Pink Christmas was the most beautiful to me and inspirational. Love your pictures and home, thank you for sharing it with us! blessings, ladyReplyDelete
Hello! Thankyou so much for your comments! I just received the one you left on last year's Christmas post :) I absolutely know what you mean too - it is IMPOSSIBLE to find beautiful pink Christmas things! My Mum has given me a few of her treasures over the years but I am constantly on the lookout for more. I hope you have more luck finding things! The decorating is one of my favorite things about Christmas :) Take care!Delete
One word: EXQUISITE!ReplyDelete
