A little bunny made from vintage Witney blanket,
And a gingham heart,there will also be a few surprise gifts! They will be held in one of my heart calico bags!
All you have to do is tell me about one of your Christmas traditions in your home and I'll enter you into the draw!
One of my traditions is wrapping presents next to the lit Christmas tree, with a Baileys coffee and a mince pie, listening to my CD of all the old crooners!Especially Bing Crosby singing Drummer Boy, you know the per u pa pum pum song! Love it, hubby isn't keen on that CD though ,he prefers the Mariah Carey Christmas CD!
Can't wait to hear about yours! I'm off to have a slice of homemade flapjack , still abit warm and crumbly and a cuppa, hope you all have a lovely weekend!
Oh, the draw will close on Wednesday, to give me enough time to post it off! Overseas ladies are very welcome to join in too!

The little jar to your right was an apple sauce jar with a black lid this morning.I like to think I have 'prettified' it with a floral serviette and a scrap of ribbon! Please ignore the plastic bag trying to get into the picture.The same goes for my double chin! The glue is still drying on the jar so you can still slightly see the black rim, I'm hoping this will disappear as it dries!
I've also covered the cardboard box to the left with the same napkin.
In the background is my spotty tin that I bought from Laura Ashley in the sale, that's the only time I ever buy from Laura Ashley!I bought the turquoise glass vase from the boot in the summer for 20p, Bargain!
I'm off into the garage to find some more glass jars.
Wishing you all a Happy weekend!

Indeed I am, but not being very successful at the moment!
Also completed 2 lengths of bunting in pink.I've got to complete a red and blue one next.
Made a bird decoration to hang in the dining room too (sorry the photo is a bit dim)
I bought this useful book a few months ago to record what we buy people for Christmas , but I forgot where I put it! Just found it this morning at the back of my knicker drawer! That would be the one filled with pretty lacy knickers that I haven't wore for a while as I've put on weight, not the practical everyday knicker drawer with comfy knick knacks. Am I the only one with a knicker drawer such as this?Anyway, just explaining why I haven't seen the wee book for a while, too much information I know!
Just one more thing, my little frame from the 99p shop isn't it sweet, just need to pop a photo in it!
Have a lovely day ladies!
