Whew!!!


I,m finally getting caught up with the christmas panic , I,ve sent the presents off, finished the knitting and some other trivial bits I promised I,d do . I put my trees up and decorated them .
I,ve decided when it,s time to put the frivolous bits and pieces away again I,m going to make another shelf cover like the christmas one I have here , but not in christmas fabric but something with roses.
Because of the candle lamp being right in the forefront of this picture you cannot see my china cat holding the fabric mouse,s tail down with her paw.




These two christmas bits on my kitchen windowsill were fantastic bargains in the last year winter sale at the garden centre , My son came to see me last Saturday , I was pointing out to him what bargains they were . "Only £1 each I said , how much do you think the original price would have been "? such a cynic ! " 89 pence he replied , needless to say I didn,t tell him anything else

Your decorations make your fireplace look so warm and cosy. Love the bargains you picked up last year. Your son sounds as if he is a real joker. Patricia

I love your decorations. I have mine all up too, just haven't done much shopping yet. Hopefully I'll get it done before Christmas. Time just seems to be getting away from me. Hugs..
