Victorian Angel Ornament and more decorations

I am still putting finishing touches to our Christmas decor
as I find more goodies
One of the prettiest little graphics came from Kerryanne English "Simply Christmas"
at "Shabby Art Boutique"

Kerryanne ,posted the little angels for us to download.
She gave the tutorial to make lovely little tree decorations with them.
I adapted it,by just glueing it onto a tiny paper doily and adding a ribbon
to hang. Then touched the wings with a little silver glitter

I found some aqua baubles at Vinnies for $2 and added them to my silver and white dining room mantle.

I collect Myer Christmas Bears,and they love to come out each Christmas
 They sit comfortably among the presents in the Sun room.
Wilbur from Kays Kids will probably love to meet them
They are Theodore and Edward

I found the lovely little Christmas child's case at Salvo's for $3
and the little book. The Joys of Christmas was only $1

May thy Christmas
happy be
And naught
but joy appear,
Is now the wish
I send to thee,
And all I love 
most dear

 I had decided not to have red in my Christmas decor this year, I mainly used white, silver and blue,
but I have to have it in my Sun room,as my family always look for the name tree.
The baubles are in traditional colours
My Christmas china is also red and gold, and we eat Christmas dinner in the sun room.

This is a little tree that has all their name baubles on it.

This little Angel has been with me for almost 50 years
She is my best little Christmas treasure.

The Wreath in here is called Spring,although our Christmas is in summer
I love it and added a red bow.

The shelf in this room.

The calender is from 1994, and has a lovely Victorian picture on each month
This is December page and says Merry Christmas at the top.

I bought it new in that year,to cut up for decoupage,but have never had the 
courage to put the scissors into it.
 I am glad I didn't now.

Making the Christmas cake 

I have to make one for my friends birthday party on the 22nd
so made it at the same time.
I'm going to ice her cake, 
but this year,
 I'm leaving off the icing for ours and decorating with glace fruit and nuts for a change.

Please join me for my favourite linky parties
The links are on my side bar.
Happy decorating
