On the third day of Christmas

12 Days of Christmas Swap 2008

Hazel from Nelson sent to me . . .

a Christmas Pudding . . .


recipe and



and two dear little Christmas Puddings (phew - thought I would have to cook something!).

One made from sequins and one hand stitched felt.



They are so, so very cute - thanks Haze!!!

If you read my last post you will see I am so not ready for this party


and if you continue to read this post you will see that nothing changed overnight (I watched Desperate Housewives instead of decorating!!!)

So anyway, the front door is open, come on in


mind the vacuum cleaner, well actually if you could see your way clear to just . . .

never mind, here is the grown up tree, all balls and beads this year, note the lack of pressies under it, that because . . .


and moving right along, still in the grown up room, the mantle, mine and The Princess's stockings (sorry Babe's nothing for you!). See the blue tack dots, I had thingies hanging up there, didn't realise until I was editing the photo that they had fallen off, oh well . . .


into the family room, the hutch, I couldn't show you the whole thing as the sewing machine is sitting in front of it, its been there for weeks!!! Can you just make a start on folding that huge pile of laundry for me . . . no well, I will tell you a wee story then


This sweet but worn little nativity set belonged to my Granny. When I was a little girl I used to love to play with it at Christmas time. It now belongs to Mum but is having a little visit with us. On Saturday the Princess told me she had been playing with it and Joseph and Baby Jesus had gone on holiday to a stable while Mary stayed at home and had a rest!!! Love it!!!


Right oh, up the stairs we go, not much up here, just this white tinsel tree with pink and silver decorations in the Princess's room. Which reminds me, I need to put the topper on it!!!


I'll leave you with this Christmas Prayer, embroidered by my Mum.


Have a great day, bye for now
