..oh this is Christmas…

It is starting to get a little colder, the frost is crisp in the morning and my home is smelling of delicious roasted nuts. (Recipe can be found on last years post)

We have decorated the Christmas tree ( I have a very special little glass which I only use when decorating the tree) and we are listening to Christmas Carols. I  do love this time of year.xmas tree decorating

Take 2 half circles of the same size, but of different fabric, stitch together and voila a Christmas Tree Napkin.liz chrostmas tree napkin

 

 

When watching Kirstie Allsop’s home made Christmas I was inspired to make my own wreath for our front door, I rather like the simplicity and the fact that  jungles when the door is opened.wreath 2014

I also rather like the advent candles this yearadvents kranz

 

The great advantage of living in the northern hemisphere, it gets dark so early at least you get to light loads of candles.

 

Last Tuesday was the last market at Kempton Park where I always manage to get the most stunning mistletoe. I stand under it often and am lucky that my daughter comes to the rescue and I get lots of kisses.mistleto

 

Last but not least, some of us managed to go for lunch this week. It was a lovely afternoon and delicious too.

I believe it is only 11 sleeps till Christmas and I hope that they will be as calm as possible for you all.

Sending  you lots of love
