I was given the crate from one of my friends and I still have no idea what I am going to do with it I just know I love it - but saw it sitting in my lobby with nothing to do and had a brain wave to put all my wrapped parcels in it. I <3 it!! I had envy from my sister's sledge she has laid out in her new livingroom with presents on it but I don't have enough space to have it laid out flat so this will have to do until I get a bigger house :)
red to stay
I have been doing some crafting - I do love a finger puppet! Some felt Christmas puppets I made for Eliza. I also made a set for my three Canadian cousins.
I have shared my favourite tree ornaments before but I got this new glass reindeer one today - I love my tiny glass collection! Eliza was delighted too she loves those ones.
And a beautiful gold christmas tree.
Already tonight I have taken the lids off these and added more tiny baubles
Here is a little look at my china collection - this is so pretty on its own I have not Christmased it up at all. I love every piece on here - most of it came from my sister earlier this year for my 30th birthday but every weekend I have been to a charity shop and bought a jug or a few cups to add to it. I also got a great bundle from someone selling their collection they had used for their wedding so I have lots of teapots now too - I think I will probably use these for the wedding next year but I have not totally decided. At least I will use the cups for the present showing - vintage tea party how exciting! Next year is going to be so much fun!
