A snapshot of Christmas...

It started with snow....lots of it.....and it was so pretty.....
on the hills, on the hen-house...... it was lovely.....there was even enough to build with.....and this year of course, they had to make......a Snow Pipple!!The Snow Pipple liked watching the hens, who weren't the least bit fazed by the snow and took it all in their stride....
Then there were mince pies......lots of them.....
and the beautiful rainbow tree that was chosen with care and cut by my son....
There is always laughter.....and this year a lot of it was caused by a pinky purple wig that Santa Claus brought Flossie........
my hubby looked more than a little creepy in it.....eughh.....sorry....!
and my lovely Mum couldn't stop laughing in it.....
There were lots of gorgeous presents - this wonderful fabric was from my fab friend Lisa
and this notebook from my son will be perfect for making a List-Making Girl like me, (wish you could feel it, it's kind of embroidered on the top and is very touchy-feely!)
and my sister gave me something every girl should have:
I wonder how long it will last?
Hope you and yours had a good one too! xxx


  1. Oooh it all looks lovely. Loving the snow Pipple and the purple wig! Will send photos soon of our new arrivals.

  2. love all the gifties! Lucky! and the gianormous pipple is priceless... but I am glad we are through with snow here. I really dislike being cold.

  3. Gorgeous fabric, can't wait to see what you do with it.

  4. wow that fabric! and that notebook!! I'll be on the hunt for the same for myself now!
