I have been decorating a Christmas tree for my grandmother who is now in a nursing home, as her favourite colour has always been orange the tree will be decorated with gold and orange ornaments. We have some of the ornaments from the old house so I was hoping there would be some orange satin balls amongst them. This is what I found.
A very 70's biscuit box with some lovely 70's ornaments.
These are a few of my favourites.
I love this old hand made Christmas bell.
No orange satin balls but there were some gold ones.
So happy to be in the top ten last week at Spoonflower for the Mittens Gift Wrap contest. I love how they have photographed the top ten designs. As you can see below they have been printed as gift wrap, wrapped a box and added a contrasting ribbon.
Recently we went down to the city to watch the Credit Unions Christmas Pageant. If you want a front row seat you need to arrive about four hours before the pageant starts, many people had claimed a spot and spread out a rug from 6.00 am. We always try to leave early but in the end left around 7.45 and arrived 8.20. It is so important to have snacks and entertainment for the kids, this year the iPad and chalk to draw on the pavement. The weather was perfect and we all had a great time. Here are a few of my favourites from the pageant.
Such a wonderful surprise to see Holly from Spoonflower had made a skirt in the new Silky Faille fabric from some of the designs in my Japanese Cameo collection. I love the skirt, it is so sweet and all the other garments look amazing and very inspiring, I especially love the scarf. Below is the Silky Faille post from the Spoonflower blog.
Even though Halloween was a few weeks ago and it is already mid November I thought I would post that Garden of Ghostly Delights slipped into the top ten of the Ghosts contest at ninth place. This was a surprise and I was very happy with how it printed.
