Christmas is coming....

The cards are written and posted, decorations are up, last orders despatched, gifts for friends made, wrapped and under the tree.  It just remains to say a very Merry Christmas and Happy New Year to my blog friends.  I leave you with a few Christmassy (is that a word?) images.

  1. You put me to SHAME! I threw some holly & ivy around today, put up a mini antique tree and a 1970s Habitat angel in a pink hessian frock, but somehow nothing looks quite picturesque enough for a blog photo. I'll try again tomorrow...

  2. Dear Jayne
    Love your simplistic approach to Christmas decorating too! Your cutwork lanterns, hearts and hydrangeas, candles and crystal droplets all appeal to my simple senses and I would feel right at home there with you for Christmas.
    Sending Christmas blessings to you dear friend and haven't forgotten to reply to your email remember? and hope to in the New Year when I come back to see more of your gorgeous creations.

  3. Happy Christmas, may you have a lovely time and wishing you all the very best wishes and happy days to come in 2013, my bloggy friend xx

  5. It's wonderful that you have those letters from your Dad and read them to your Mom. They must bring back lovely and very romantic memories to her.

    Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones, dear Jayne!
    Hugs to you,

  7. I hope it has been a good start to the New Year and that it may continue throughout 2013.

  8. Dear Jayne,
    As I was traveling to spend christmas with my daughter on the 23/12 , I did not see your post of wonderful decorated home, this day before christmas.
    But I hope your holydayes were great and cosy, and I just had to tell you your packed gifts are so beautiful.
    I wish you a wonderful year 21013, and hope to meet you often :-)
