I popped into my local C Shop and bought these...

12 vintage bells for £1 ... I have put them in a pretty box

And a little tinsel tree for 50p...after all you can never have too many Ho Ho Ho!!
Last week I sat in front of my sewing machine and made these...a little babushka and spotty ted 
A string of babushka's to hang in the kitchen window....
A Christmas heart with silver bells....
Three Christmas stockings...
A Bunny.. a present for a very special little someone..

And last of all an Angel for another very special someone for Christmas....

Well there will be no sewing for me this week as Fin has a special Birthday on  Friday so we are having a little party for him Saturday... I have such a lot to do
Thank you so much for your lovely comments you are all so very special to me..and a big hello to my new followers.. I am over the moon that so many of you have shown interest in my giveaway.. Fingers crossed for Sundays draw!!


  1. Hello,
    I visited your blog today - I saw you on 'Teacups and Bunting.' Your blog is so charming, and I love the red heart hanging. You have many creative ideas on here. While I was reading, I noticed that you like old teddy bears. I adore them, and when my mom passed away, each of us was given one of her teddy bears. Now when my daughters travel, they take their grandma's bear with them. Me and my daughters also have a blog, and we would love it if you could visit us and follow. I would enjoy coming back to visit with you. Your blog is very cheerful to me and lovely. I hope to hear from you, and have a sweet day. Oh, I love Rod Stewart too. Me and my husband used to listen to him all the time when we were dating.
