time to get cosy

What a wet and windy day! When it's wild outside it’s nice to get in from work, batten down the hatches and get cosy. My Christmas tree is up and adds to the atmosphere (I am in gradually trying to replace my shop bought decorations with handmade creations) I like a simple tree with a traditional feel.
I am currently preparing for a Christmas Fair on Sunday 11th in Skipton. Progress is slow tonight as I indulged in a spot of baking and whilst in my kitchen I noticed how pretty my new lights look (they are fairy lights with a retro lampshade effect) 

Anyway I best go make some more Christmas decorations....the ginger bam bam (gingerbread man) is waiting to be created!

  7. Your Christmas tree is beautiful! I also find that over the years the hand-made decorations are slowly replacing store-bought. Happy Holidays! xo Karen

  8. Hello! I love your lampshade lights,where did you find them? Do tell.
    Your tree is looking very sparkly and pretty...hope to put mine up tomorrow. :0)

  9. Thanks for all the lovely comments! I'm so pleased I've joined blogland with you nice people.
    The lights were a present from my mum 'I saw these and thought of you'. They came from a local garden centre a few weeks ago (I'm not sure if they are available online or not) but might be worth a look. Thanks again, abbie x


I would love to hear any comments you have or simply to know people are reading my blog, and I will get back to you! Many thanks for looking x
