Love this!

I have to share this site with you! Its a blog of free wallpapers & I totally adore the Christmas designs - I think the snowman is so cute!!

Other news - I finally have ink for my printer so no more excuses for not getting my Christmas book done. I only managed the first page & its now the 10th so its going to take some dedication on my part to get it done!
Onwards & upwards as they say. See you soon :)

Old Santa/ New Santa

I would like to introduce to you 2 Santa's who hang on my tree. The first is in the photo below & he is at least 40 years old (if not more). I have seen this Santa every Christmas for as long as I can remember as he belonged to my Mum before I claimed him as mine! He is made from metal & he is a bit bashed & missing some paint in certain areas but I love him & I would be quite upset if he ever disappeared.

The second Santa is brand new (well last years actually) & he is very brightly coloured & has been given an 'aged' look to try to look very old. I'm sure he will become just as loved in the future as the other Santa but theres no contest really is there!!

Hooray the tree is up!!

I know........... I'm an early bird for some people but I cannot wait............ so the tree HAD to go up on Sunday! Jake was so excited too - so much that I had to tell him to calm down as it was still November & what was he going to be like by Christmas Eve??!! My nerves cant stand it :)
Anyway, my excited son & I got his Daddy to fetch the tree & boxes from the attic & we spent the next hour or so ooohing & aaahing at all the things that we forget about for 11 months of the year! Jake pretended to be a tree with the angel on the top - I think he would make a great tree don't you?
I love decorating my Christmas tree but this year we didn't get to do the rest of the room as we went to my parents for lunch & by the time we got home again I couldn't summon up any enthusiasm. But today I finally finished everything & the house looks gorgeous at last!!
