Christmas at my house x

Hope everyone out there had a very Merry Christmas.....

Do you like my new Christmas tea cup?
Matches my Christmas tea pot!
I love Christmas and I run downstairs to light all the candles and the fire....
My daughter Poppy laid the table , we had our prawn cocktail in vintage tea cups this year....
we all wore badges x
And sat down to our Christmas feast!
A lovely traditional Christmas dinner!
This was the turkey before I cooked it a la Nigella Lawson..soaking in a spiced brine.....it was soooo tender and juicy I am never doing it any other way!
Then it was present time in front of the fire......

Two of my favourite pressies....a vintage brooch...

These wonderful vintage hair pins......
I had lots more wonderful pressies which I will show you in a later post x
Boxing Day it was down to the beach to watch these brave souls do the annual swim......

They are much braver than I.....
Swimming in the sea, with snow on the ground!!!
It was great fun to cheer and clap them on x
Hope you all had a wonderful time over the festive season x x
