Memories from our Christmas day...

Christmas morning: just our family...glitter down the stairs and into the hall leads to all sorts of lovely Christmassy goodness. None of which I photographed at the lovely husband had been very resourceful and imaginative in his presents for me....and all of them were vintage and sewing themed. Horay! More later.

Over to my parents house for lunch where my sister had the whole family making Cheese Stars the minute we walked through the door...and eating them less than 20 minutes later.

Beautiful gift-wrapping by my dear Mama - the outside is always as much of a treat as the inside.

And Ian playing the bongos to get the fire started. Much tribal dancing and shouts of encouragement from all.

A wonderful day...followed by a lovely evening snuggled under a gorgeous new blanket with Ian looking through my new sewing books together.

I hope you all had a lovely day too!


  1. What a lovely day! How fun to make cheese stars on Christmas. Enjoy this wonderful post-Christmas time, Florence.

  2. Glad it was fun! Nice to see your Mum's gift tags. I've often run out of steam by then and mine are a to/from affair I'm afraid.

  3. What a wonderful day! I love your mum's tissue and ribbon wrapping.

  4. Looks like you had great fun. Love the bongo playing!

  5. Your mums wrapping was very nice!!

  6. Glad you had a great day! What sewing books did you get? I got book tokens off my sister to "feed my craft monster" and I can't decide what to spend them on!!
