With only two days of preparations to go, I think I am organised and time to sit back and relax and take in the the lights and decorations ...

She may look a little raggedy or wild, depending upon your view. But she was made with love today by me and my daughter along with several more peg dolly angel friends - hopefully I can keep them safe and they may become little family heirlooms of the future?

The frost today is stunning, just too many beautiful images to take. I don't mind the cold when it's as pretty as this.

Today was Christmas party time at my daughter's pre-school and I just have to blog the photo I took of the best behaved magicians rabbit I have ever seen - he was the star of the show and all the children could talk about despite having a visit from Father Christmas! Have a good weekend.

How brilliant are these cookie cutters my daughter and I used this afternoon? The little slot means you can hook the biscuits over the edge of a tea or coffee cup, or as I am planning a mug of hot chocolate tomorrow night with my friend.

Christmas is definately a time for reminiscing about festivities gone by, and as my dear Nannie used to say on the 15th - 'only ten more go to beds'!

Christmas is getting closer and over the years I've tried different styles and themes of decorations, but always come back to including the traditional berry red.

The house is now finally ready for Christmas, bedecked in sparkle and glow... As I have a few moments to enjoy the decorations I predict several festive pictures over the next couple of weeks.

One of my favourite things about decorating the house for Christmas is putting up the lights, I love the comforting warm glow they create. More decorating this weekend, hope you have a good one.

With the Christmas party season in full swing, I think this year I shall ignore the 'less is more approach' and layer up with beads, the more the better!

I do love Christmas and when the candy canes come out it seems like the festive season has really begun!

As the cold snap continues, the world outside continues to be a feast for photographers...

During these days of freezing temperatures, I am thankful for fur-lined boots!

I love the patterns that frost makes, nature is a wonderful designer. Have a warm weekend if you can!

The first day of advent and Christmas is rapidly approaching - makes the current weather all of a sudden seem very festive!
