Hello friends........I haven't blogged much since Christmas because New Years Eve we all caught the horrible sickness bug that was going around! We were in Wiltshire when it started so had a nightmare car journey back to Devon where we collapsed into bed and spent two whole days there!!!
It left us all feeling weak and wobbly and gave us hot flushes for a good week afterwards!!!
Anyways enough of the doom and gloom, hope you all enjoyed Christmas and the New Year...I got so many presents I couldn't begin to show you all of them as I had over 70!
But here are a selection .....
Knitted cakes and flowery tea cosy!!!!
Yum yum, the only kind of cake I can admire as at the moment like many of you out there I am hoping to loose some weight!!!
I was so chuffed with my tea cosy...knitted by mother x x x
I just can't stop looking at them!!

Got this lovely blue jug, just right for custard!!
A lovely little rosebud trio..............
Father Christmas must have thought I had been a very good girl as he got me these wonderful vintage hair pins.........

A lovely colourful watering can......

and dibber for my garden.....I am going to practically have an allotment out the back this year as we are building three huge vegetable beds!!!
A wonderful journal..............
Quite possibly one of my favourite pressies...these hairgrips!!!
And last but not least an amazing vintage broach from my daughter Poppy x
Well I hope you have all enjoyed seeing some of my Crimbo pressies......hope you all got lovelies too!!!

Due to being away and ill I didn't get a chance to remind everyone to enter my December give away so I am extending it to the end January! Read all about it here x x
