Merry Christmas!

Wishing EVERYONE who visits my blog a very Merry Christmas!
Thank you for all of your visits and the comments left to my posts - I appreciate the time you have spent with me.

I hope that you and yours have a wonderful time over the festive break.

Keep warm, count your blessings, and have lots of fun!

Merry Christmas from our home to yours,
Niki x

I'll leave you with photos taken around our home over the last few days, whilst we've been preparing for the festivities...

And join me in song...

if you'd like to... ;-))

The Christmas Song (Chestnuts Roasting on an Open Fire)...

Chestnuts roasting on an open fire,

Jack Frost nipping at your nose,

Yuletide carols being sung by a choir,

And folks dressed up like Eskimos.

Everybody knows a turkey and some mistletoe,

Help to make the season bright.

Tiny tots with their eyes all aglow,

Will find it hard to sleep tonight.

They know that Santa's on his way;

He's loaded lots of toys and goodies on his sleigh.

And every mother's child is going to spy,

To see if reindeer really know how to fly.


And so I'm offering this simple phrase,

To kids from one to ninety-two,

Although its been said many times, many ways,

Merry Christmas to you.

  16. DEELightful photos...thank you for sharing....Got some ideas for next year!

  17. What are those little pies that you made? They look delicious.

  18. Niki, Niki, Niki!

    This is my first visit and I am SO loving your blog! You must be one of the most talented women on the planet, m'dear! I will be visiting regularly to see what creations you come up with next! You truly are an inspiration.

    Might you have left any of those beautiful lace Christmas baubles or sumptuous creamy, dreamy lace hearts with rhinestones? I have a flocked tree and these would make the most delicious addition to its snowy branches. My tree is over 20 years old now, and much of the flocked snow is starting to fall off. I was thinking that this year might be the last for a flocked tree in our living room. After seeing your decorations, however, I'm definitely going to search for a new flocked tree for next season!

    Your festive red floral bags (especially the one with Santa) and red 'French' heart sachets are GORGEOUS, too! Truly, my head is on a swivel trying to absorb it all! I believe I could spend days and days in your shop immersed among your genius!

    Luvs and hugs for a Happy, Peaceful, Prosperous and Heathy New Year,

  19. Hello Linda,
    Thank you for finding my blog and for your lovely comment!
    I have sold out of the hearts and baubles...but will be back to hand making lots more items again in the New Year!
    Niki :)
