Advent Calendar 5

 


Only one tin holds something - Christmas cake. Perhaps I'll make some Christmas biscuits for the others. It can't be Christmas without satsumas. Anyone got through a whole box without a few going mouldy?

Stay safe

Advent Calendar 2

 


Only a few decorations this year - just keeping it simple. This one is a decoration from Germany which is now hanging on the mirror in the front room. It matches the red theme going on in here.

Advent Calendar 1





Silver and gold this year for the tree with white lights and tinsel for a bit of sparkle. Isn't it difficult to get a good shot of the tree when it's lit. It looks magical in real life and smells wonderful.

Virtual Christmas Wreath making

It's started. I have succumbed. Made one last year and thought I would make one this year but couldn't see how. Last year I went to a Wreath Making Evening with a group of friends and we really enjoyed ourselves chopping and cutting and arranging but, of course, this year it was out of the question until ... I saw this site. My goodness I could order a wreath kit and then have my evening virtually. 


I ordered the kit and some extra Christmas stuff and logged in to the online workshop. Grubby hands, mucky floor but fabulous end result to hang on my door. (I feel another ditty coming along here.)


After a thorough soak I hung the wreath and ...


stood back to admire.


Yeah, Christmas has now officially started at this house. Next job is extracating the decorations from the loft.

Stay safe.
