It's Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas...

It's felt a bit of a luxury to have a three day weekend...
I've been able to cross quite a few things from my 'to do' list...
Mince pies have been baked...

*

The tree has been purchased and trimmed in all the family's favourites...

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

*

Other areas of our home have been dressed...

*

*

*

*

*
*

The doll's house residents have been busy with the decs too!

I've not been able to bring in any fresh foliage so far, as snow is still falling here...Artificial flowers will add some festive colour instead.

*

Gifts have been wrapped...
*
*

With just a few presents yet to deliver and some food shopping to be done...
Tomorrow I have to be back at my shop, (snow permitting!) so I'm glad I've been able to have this time to get things feeling a bit more festive at home. Hope things are going well for you too.
Keep warm,
Niki x

  3. Love your blog. Your home is so pretty. I haven't done much this year - we just moved and this is not our year for the kids to be here so no one will be here but my hubby and I. Miss having lots of decorations. Do have my tree and some of the little ones, but not much else. So really enjoy seeing all the lovely things others are doing.
    A question. Your mince pies are darling. What is YOUR recipe. They are so cute. Please reply to me at jackiemorgan02@yahoo.com.
    Merry Christmas to you and yours.

  4. It all looks wonderful Niki! Thank you for your comment on my blog, we have been snowed in now for 3 days, so not been able to get out to buy the tree. Have been busy sorting stock & playing with my fabric stash & buttons.. and dolls houses!! Take care & keep warm. xxx

  7. Hi Niki

    All looking wonderful! Our tree is currently in the utility room waiting to be released from it's 'string bag'. Decorations still in the loft, presents still to be wrapped, but most of the food shopping done.

    Hopefully all will be done by the time Han, Rob and Florence come on Christmas Eve!

    Have a lovely Christmas and enjoy a few days break!!

  8. Such a lovely holiday home! The display in reds is my favorite. I was beginning to feel a little left out seeing all of your amazing snow photos. But we finally are in the middle of our first little snowstorm right now, so I hope it lasts till Christmas. :)

  16. Your home looks so beautiful, like a stage set but created with love.
    Our home is just thawing out, we have one of the useless condensing boilers that don't work when it gets cold! Thank goodness we have a good reliable local plumber to help out.
