Today has been wonderful and I can honestly say I don’t know when I’ve enjoyed Christmas so much. Baking has taken up much of my day, with candles and tealights in the kitchen, my new vintage dinner service iswashed and ready, a splish splash walk with the collies in the New Forest, a few sprigs of holly gathered, a huge chocolate log baked and decorated with tiny ornaments and already sampled, ginger cake and orange stuffing also already started as accompaniment to the ham for our Christmas Eve supper. All we need now is snow!
Merry Christmas – believe in magic.

It’s cold outside, and little deer have magically appeared all along the mantlepiece, to keep the snowman families company, and to bring delight and make me smile every time I walk into the room …
I love Christmas!
What a magical time of year – hope you’re enjoying the preparations!

Christmas has landed!
and we’re Rockin’ around the Christmas tree!
well, some of us at least are taking things easy! Belle is pacing herself ready for the big day!
My old quilt is in use again and I’ve decided to keep the snowflake cushion that took so many hours of hexi-crochet!
There may be snow by morning so Flora is just about to be tucked up in her hutch for the night, warm and snug.
Keep warm and be merry!
