elves and jingle bells

how are you doing?
Isn’t time flying?

I just wanted to pop in quickly to show you something wonderful

I entered a giveaway over at Chippernelly
 home of the fabulous Fee
and guess what?
I was one of the VERY lucky winners! 

 and just look what she made for me


 Ahhhhhhhhh .....
So beautiful
they even came wrapped with gingham ribbon and jingle bells!

 Fee ….. you are amazing and so so so kind
I will treasure them always

It was a 'carry it forward' giveaway
so I will be having a big think 
about what my giveaway will be in the new year

 We now have our Christmas decorations up
it was so nice to unwrap these little guys
Sweet B and I made them last year
BTW ..... she is home ..... it's so wonderful
while I am sitting here typing she is sitting on the floor
cutting out snowflakes for a special decoration
(they may even feature in a guest post ;o)
we have 'Elf' on TV
and all feels good with the world

 I have finished my last Christmas gift

a personalised bunting for my great niece
(sorry the photos are a bit rubbish)
It's a really nice feeling to be getting that long list ticked off
I have some foodie gifts still to make
which I am really excited about
in my pantry there is a mountain of chocolate ready and waiting

Thank you so much for popping by
It’s so lovely to see you
 and thank you for your kind comments on my last post
sending lots of love and Christmas cheer your way
Back soon
 BIG love
