This was the tree last Christmas we had a real tree dripping with alsorts of beauty.
Well Christmas will be a little different for us this year, my eldest daughter and her young family are spending Christmas in South Africa - they left me some beautiful christmas cards and I will miss them sooooo much.
So I am taking the rest of my brood to Wales to spend christmas with my sister and all the family. We have it well organised her eldest is cooking and we are both putting our feet up over a glass of something special. It will be bliss. However I have still put a few things special out for Christmas in my own house. I had to put out all the sweeties - my children would not forgive me if I had left the dresser bare :0)The tree is fake this year - with not extra special about it ..... but still took out a few fav ornaments.
Put some lights upLight the candles - and would never go without this winter candle from the White Company ~ the best ever.
I love these christmas cones that my round robin pal created last christmas ~ Holly of Holly Doodle makes no end of treasures and christmas would not be the same with out them around my home.
This Snow Queen Crown by Holly sits upon my dressing table.
Well 2 things that you should really consider for your Christmas stocking this year should be a book by Twiggy (first ever super model and don't let anyone tell you other wise ... wink) she wrote a book about 20 years ago about how to look after yourself and it seems only fitting that I should get the next instalment - for anyone heading towards there 40's in there 40's or older you will LOVE this book.
The last thing I had to have by my side was the christmas romantic homes. As I am a complete romantic it suits me just fine.
