Its CHRISTMAS!

Deck the halls with lots of pretty things....

Put out the Santa from my childhood days.......


He is so gorgeous and very old, I thought we were the only ones to own him but have peek in Cath Kidstons Christmas catalogue!



Stockings hung and snowflakes made......



Angels looking like butter wouldn't melt in their mouths.......



A wreath hung on the lounge door as later you will see the beauty I made at a wreath making workshop!



A betty bib ice skating lady hung from the tree, simply sweet!



A smelly Christmas heart of course, made by moi!



Reindeer's on the mantelpiece.....


Mr SewRecycled never misses his kiss, I love this Mistletoe made by this talented lady.


Now, last night I went to a fantastic and jolly Wreath Making Workshop at Jo Sweetings house. She also teaches me Letter Carving (more about that another time) Just look at her Studio (above) in her garden......




With florists wire and abundance of beautiful greenery, she taught us how to start off with a base.....




Then to add layer by layer the decorative touches......






I had a little assistant next to me all evening......



Her home is so beautiful, a perfect place to make, drink wine and listen to christmassy songs!



So, TA DA! Here is my Door Wreath!






Have a MERRY CHRISTMAS and a HAPPY NEW YEAR!
