Have Yourself a Merry Little Christmas...

Hope you are happy and relaxed, with Christmas just around the corner now...
(Updated 23rd December 14)
I've been finishing-off a few last minute tasks before the big day. I found this old Christmas decoration in our attic, which I had forgotten about. It is made from moss and over the years has faded...
I decided to paint it white and whilst the paint was still wet, I simply sprinkled it with glitter. 

It now sits above my folk-art Santa that I made many years ago. 

I've been making fairies as gifts for friends...

And homemade chutneys as gifts too.
Parcels are wrapped...

And we've been making mince pies and other treats

We've had a little help along the way...
A special 'baby's first Christmas' for granddaughter number two :) 
The tree is trimmed.

And the house has been dressed for the season. 

So all that is left is to wish you a very Merry Christmas from our home to yours - 
Hope you have a wonderful time,
Niki x
