 Welcome Friends,

And another week already. What a fun time right now with getting things ready for Christmas.

So much to do and very little time, but so far, I am getting things done.

Until I lost one of my address books. with allot of my old friends in there, I have looked everywhere but just can't find it.

So, hoping they will get in touch with me soon. Apart from that everything is good. We still have a few things to buy and places to go before the big day, but I say it again it's the quickest Christmas ever.

I started early to, then it could be me getting allot slower, or the world cup, watching most of the matches.

But I did watch a Christmas film one night, I also brought a great Christmas CD again of the old 

Christmas songs, it's wonderful to sing along with it, it makes you feel so good to sing along.

I stitched this little sweet tray for a friend from an old French magazine. So sorry that I don't have magazine anymore, if I find it, I will let you know what it was called.

My friend likes anything 50s stile. 

 And a lovely card arrived from Gabi, thank you so much my friend. Love it.


 I am slowly decorating my dresser, my gingerbread corner.

Snowmen corner.  And a lovely card from mouse and parcel I will open in Christmas week.  


   I brought this card for Hubby so that I can have the ornament next year ha,


Well, my friends that's it for this week, take care and enjoy the Season.

  10. That is a darling tray, perfect for Christmas! Yes, please let us know if you find where you found it.

  11. I love your little tray, June, and I'm sure it was a big hit with your friend. Lovely card from Gabi, too. I finally got your little gift mailed today, but they told me there is a mail strike in the UK so they weren't sure when it would actually arrive. Anyway--it's on the way. I hope you can find your address book--that would be frustrating! Take care now and enjoy the countdown to the big day ♥

  12. Dear June,
    I hope you'll find your address book soon. Stay listening Christmas songs and singing, it's so relaxing and makes grey days sunny.
    Have a nice week. Hugs Erna

  15. Dear June, your French Lady looks like she has just been plucked out of the 1950s ;-)) I love such motives. Could it be a design by Veronique Enginger?

  16. That is a fun tray, the design is perfect for your friend. Nice to see you getting some festive ornaments out too. I did put some of my Christmas stitching up today, just a couple of pictures!
    Serendipitous Jo
