It's official - I'm now feeling 100% Christmassy! We've (finally) finished writing our Christmas cards, wrapped all the presents and decorated the house in time for the Big Day on Saturday.
It was my friend Fi's birthday last week. As she's a fellow vintage and craft lover, we decided to get together and spend the morning creating something for the Christmas tree. Here's what we made...we call them our 'Peg Molls'! Fi's fabulously festive fairy has sparkly pipe cleaner halo and wings and I love the way her skirt is at a jaunty Marilyn Monroe-esque angle. Mine isn't quite finished yet (I think she needs some arms), but with a bit of luck will be soon!
Mr Treasure and I excitedly put our Christmas trees up at the weekend...
...with a bit of help from one of our furry friends!
I love re-discovering all our tree decorations. There are always some I've forgotten about, as well as old favourites that I look forward to finding.
Every year my parents make the Christmas card that they send to us. Here's the one for 2010, featuring printing, sweet papers and a suffolk puff...isn't it fab?!
This was the scene in our back garden yesterday. We've had about six inches of snow so far.
Having been cooped up at home for days now (flu bug followed by snow), Mr Treasure decided it was about time I ventured back into the world! So, wrapped in as many layers as we could get into and armed with wellington boots, ski socks and ski gloves, we went for a walk through the snow to buy bread and milk. This was the scene that greeted us in our local park...so pretty!
Even the ducks were out playing in the snow! Luckily, not all of their pond was frozen over so at least they could have a bit of a swim.
Here's Mr Treasure underneath a particularly wintery-looking tree. I find it really enchanting how snow makes everything so peaceful. There was hardly a sound as we walked along, except for the excited whoops coming from all the children who were sledging down one of the park's hills and the occasional slush of melted snow as the odd car drove past.
We passed this snowy letterbox on our travels. It was full to the brim!
I hope that wherever you are, the snow isn't being too disruptive and you're enjoying the run up to Christmas. Stay warm!
