Merry Christmas ♔

 I just wanted to pop by to wish you all a beautiful Christmas time
with lots of love, laughter and good times
oh and mulled wine

Do you like my new bauble??
isn't it cute?
my best friend sent it to me all the way from Australia
it is so delicate but amazingly arrived in one piece
it is our little tradition, we send one each year
makes us feel close
thank you Angi

Sweet B and I have been cooking up a storm in the kitchen
this last few days
I'll leave you with a few photos

Hope you have a good one
and I'll see you in 2012!

  1. Oh thank you for posting photo's of your ginger bread house as I am makinh one for Little's birthday on the 28th.

    I have decorated my Christmas cake with the bunting I got from you. It was looking so cute....and then the boys picked half the decorations off and ate then! They are so bloody naughty!!!!

    Merriest Christmas wishes to you,

  2. Merry Christmas to you too. Loving your gingerbread house.
