Homemade Christmas

First of all some more cards.

I made six of these chair back name tags using different Christmas baubles. These will be a Christmas present presented prettily on a bed of tissue paper in a wicker basket. (That's the idea anyway.)

No room, no room

The bird of paradise is taking over. (Spot the cat.)

Walking with my friend

We both did this walk to Rossall Point when we were little, she with her granddad and me with my dad. We may have passed by each other 50 years ago. Who knows?

She also visited the swan pond in her youth.

The ducks were hungry today but we had no food to offer.

No swans this time round though.
