Happy Christmas

Night has fallen, fairy lights are twinkling. All is safely gathered in, wrapped and stashed for the feast ahead. Loved ones are on their way and for a few minutes there is calm around the house.
The wreath I made with greenery from my little garden is still hanging on the front door - miracles do happen at Christmas it seems.
This year's favourite cards (treats to myself mostly!) ...
... and favourite snowy trees are all in place.
Just a little more baking to do and beds to change and then we're ready. Time to savour the silence and remember what its all about.
 
Wishing everyone joy wherever you are in the world. Happy happy Christmas xxx

Merry Christmas Steph. Love your cards and quite understand how you have to buy them yourself -I've banished nearly all our cards to a dark corner as most do not fit with my Christmas card ideals.
