A great Christmas Day ...











Chicken, mashed spuds, Brussels sprouts, old fashioned stuffing (I still use Moms recipe... the best stuffing I have ever tasted!), and, of course, yummy gravy. Ahhhhhhhhhhh ... could not have been better.












The house is littered with plates of many types of baked treats. I have been enjoying myself baking for weeks now. I absolutely love the build up to the day. Probably even more than the actual day if the truth be known.

We thoroughly enjoy admiring our "sparkly" tree for a few weeks of the festive season. It was a peaceful, relaxed, special day.

We searched both blogs, but we couldn't find the Christmas card ideas? Can you e-mail us the posts? Thank you for everything that you do!

Hi. I thought I'd better stop over here, too. What fun. Beautiful christmas things. The doll you use for an avatar looks like one from a book I had out of the library. The dolls were beaded! They were awesome. I also work with poly clay a bit.

I agree with you Vee, I enjoy the build up to Christmas so much more than the actual day, I really do always feel let down after the event. Love mashed potato, we had it this evening with our meal. My sparklies will be coming down soon to make way for J's birthday cards! x
