Feeling Festive

Hiya, hope you are all keeping warm.

We have had a lovely weekend which has a had a festive feel to it. Yesterday we woke to snow, although only a light covering it was enough to look pretty without causing chaos !

Today we have visited Moseley Old Hall , a local National Trust property where King Charles hid in a priest hole in the 17th century.

The girls made some traditional decorations

Sweet aren't they ? We also all had to stir the Christmas pudding and make a wish - I can't tell you though cos then it won't come true !!! No, it didn't involve the UPS man lol, it was a bit more deep and meaningful than that !

Think what I should have wished for was a new USB cable for my camera, I have to hold this one in a certain place and keep perfectly still , must get round to getting a new one !

Anyway, I have eventually managed to upload something to show you. After weeks of looking at adoringly, stroking and sniffing ( ?) I have eventually been brave and taken the plunge and cut my Elegant Soiree papers - well just one sheet !!

Used Growing Green to make white paper - this set makes wonderful background paper. Flower from Boho Blossoms punch with a brad from the neutrals set and greeting from Occasional Greetings.Turned the design paper over and used a bit from the other side. Bit of the gorgeous Marina Mist taffeta ribbon on this one too !

Off to wrap a few more pressies, while I'm still in the mood ! x


  1. The visit to Moseley Old Hall sounds fun - those decorations are cute! I know what you mean about the elegant soireƩ paper - but it's no good looking at it, it needs to be used! Pretty cards, the colours are gorgeous.
