More Christmas tweaking

I visited Bella at Bella's rose cottage today
and I loved how she used cut glass dishes etc with tea candles
They looked so pretty twinkling amongst the Christmas goodies
Sooooo, I had to copy,and I love them

I also made Banana chutney for the first time
and while I was on a roll, some orange marmalade
It makes lovely little gifts with their colourful tops

It's going to be a scorching 43c tomorrow. phhhhhhw
so I picked most of the hydrangeas,as I'm sure they won't cope
with the heat.
It was 1939 when it was last that hot in December 43.9 to be precise.

I hope you are staying cool in Aus
and warm for my Northern friends
Merry Christmas
I am still trying to get around all the nice linky parties
this week
The links are on my side bar

You've been very busy, Jeanetteann. Your array of candles and the trees is charming. Love those hydrangeas. Wow! Have a very Merry Christmas!

Hot or cold, things are looking festive for you! I loved Bella's display too! I have spent Christmas in the tropics and it has a whole different feeling when it's not cold. There is a commercial on TV here that has a palm tree all lit with colored lights and it looks quite cheery! I hope your Christmas is wonderful, Jeannette!

Yummmmm! Banana chutney and orange marmalade. All you need is my homemade biscuits.
I would much rather be where it's warm. Brrrrrrr...... it's freezing cold here. Ice-y rain.
Wishing you and your family... a very Merry Christmas.
God bless.
Your friend,

Your homemade goodies look delicious! I think I would prefer some place warm as we had a terrible ice storm the other day and lots of people are without electricity. Thank you so much for visiting L'Heure Bleue At Home!

I love your sparkling lights Jeanetteann! And homemade marmalade? Good thing you are far enough away as Mr. B would leave me to be with you just for that LOL! Merry Christmas dear friend :-)
