Hope you all had a wonderful Christmas , here are a few of my favourite images from ours.....
I enjoyed getting the house ready.....

Bringing in the holly and the ivy from the garden....

Making mince pies with grandchildren....
They had to have glitter on of course.......
We even caught a pic of Father Christmas putting our presents under the tree!!!
Our table laid for Christmas dinner, prawn cocktail served in vintage tea cups of course!
And of course lots of lovely pressies....

Please pop back soon when I shall be showing you some of the handmade presents that me and my daughter made.....next year I am hoping to make over 80% of my presents x
