THE TREE GETS DRESSED

It's good to be back.


Things have been busy. When I've grabbed my ten minutes of treat time I've been blog reading instead of blog writing :)


Getting to that time of year when the days are running by so fast + lots to do before Christmas. Our tree is dressed. Bosco makes a daily ritual of naughtily jumping up + knocks the needles flying....it is a tease though with it's little bird ornaments beckoning!


Our Christmas cards are all done. I had fun with a potato print + after some experimenting I ended up with these. Help as always was on hand from Bosco when I came to write inside them....

Simple + sparkly + on a tree theme.


Hope everyone's having a good week. I've been working extra shifts in the Post Office....as you'd imagine it is crazily non-stop this time of year with what seems to be a never-ending queue. Looking forward to a day at home tomorrow....just me, the radio + sewing machine....no crowds....orange + clove oils burning....lots of festive making. Until next time! x

Your photos have really captured Christmas.
I love how cats are so fasinated with Christmas trees and all the cat toys/decorations they hold.

Cards are wonderful - I going to start calling you Wonder woman!

Your cards are really lovely. I love the little sparkly bits. Your day off sounds lovely. So Christmassy.

thanks everyone for the comments...it's nice to be back in the blog + hearing from you lovely folk again!

welcome rebecca! thank you for your sweet words...i always think i'll not be able to come up with a new christmas card so it's a relief i did + that people like the idea :)

dear lynn...bosco pics especially for you!! i am very doubtful of being a wonder woman...if you saw the state of my house...i'm more like whirlwind girl ;)

hi nonnie! glad you like the sparkle...i have a lot of it around from my disco days! my day off's going good so far...even had coffee + stollen for an extra christmassy treat!

hello miss cruststation...i'm glad to have inspired as i get so much from other blogs myself. at least one ribbon needs to be re-tied per day with a leaping cat about!

dear julie, would love to invite you round if there weren't a few thousand miles between us! still you never know...one day? hope you're getting some good studio time too! x

dear shari, how did you guess? i have been happily working away with the archers for company today! it has me hooked :) maggie would have fun with our tree...i bet she's loving your pine + berries?! thanks for your lovely words. x

Wonderful pics as always! Hope you do get that nice quiet day at home soon. We have lots of birds on our tree too but we dont have a cat and the dog isnt interested unless its to wag his lovely tail too close and knock the needles off!
