A little peak into my Christmas

Who can resist lovely fragrant candles,especially at Christmas
This one is Vanilla and Brown Sugar
It smells Christmas


Silver and blue in the sunroom



My blog has been renamed, but I havn't worked out how to change it on my picassa yet,so the old name is still showing
Pearly wreath





Pointsettias just speak Christmas,even silk ones




Such an Angelic little face, cherubs and little statuettes like this one I can't resist
when I find them during my op shop hunt.  This one cost only $2 a few years ago


The Mantle

I made this stocking from scraps of velvet and satin




This lovely Royal Albert decoration was a gift from a friend and I love it


 
                                                           Part of my Santa collection

One of my treasured Myer Christmas Bears
I am always on the lookout for more
But this one is my favourite

                          The man himself, Christmas wouldn't be Christmas without him

And all the happiness he brings with him in his golden sled



                        The whole meaning of Christmas which we mustn't forget in all the excitement




 I got this little reindeer at Spotlight for $2.50 on special, it's paper mache'

I spray painted it white and then sprinkled it with glitter, then added the little bell.

He will take his place on the Christmas dinner table. 


I had these little

masks in my Christmas crate,but can't decide whether to use them this year.



I made this apron and it hangs near the cooker,all ready for cooking up a feast


A trial run on the

table setting, in the sunroom








A picture from my favourite cookery book of mince pies




The cake is finished,  I'm not flash at icing cakes, but I think it will be appreciated by the children.

My version of mince pies. 




Merry Christmas
It's Show and Tell Monday at House in the Roses
Show and Tell Friday at My Romantic Home
See you there x

How delightfully festive, Jeanette!! Your table setting is lovely - where did you find squared crackers? We do crackers every year - love the old English traditions! Blessings upon you this season!
Joy!
