Merry Christmas Everyone


Christmas is almost here - just a few more days to go and loving all the catch-ups with friends and final preparations ......


Making tree decorations










Lots of baking



Gifts for girlfriends


and a few last minute candle decorations for the mantlepiece and table


I'd like to wish all my dear blogging friends around the world my very best wishes for a Merry Christmas and a Healthy and Happy New Year. Thank you all so very much for all your lovely posts, your friendship and the wonderful comments you have left me during the last year - they mean so much.

Take care and I'll be back in the New Year.

    1. Thank you Patricia. Hope you have a great Christmas too. The jars were filled with bay leaves,several cinnamon sticks, dried orange and lime slices, dried cranberries and cloves. They smell so Christmassy too. xx

    2. What I forgot to say Patricia is that the idea is to put the filling in a saucepan, fill the jar with water and pour into the pan and bring to a simmer for a wonderful aroma to fill the kitchen. x
