time flies!

I can't believe it's been so long since I last posted! I've been so busy at work I haven't had time to play with you! Somehow I managed to put up the Christmas tree and some other decorations though!

                                              it's a brand new tree, and it's white and I love it!

 This is the tree skirt I've made for it. They are 5 african flowers in christmassy colours. Notice they have only five sides instead of six!
I've mixed the ornaments, some are bought, some are made by me. This little snowman is my creation.
                      little angel:  bought, ball with buttons: made by me

                                               Pattern for the candy canes here

                                                    Lovely Santa bought by hubbie!


                              Some more little Santas and an african flower little ornament!

There are these two big mirrors in one corner of the living room. I wanted to decorate them somehow, but don't like that artificial snow, it's too messy, so I've put some of that jelly decorations you stick to the mirror. Clean, cheerful and nice!

           And finally, let me introduce you to these little fellows. The two at the back we've had them for years now, they were presents, and have been our only Christmas decorations until a couple of years ago. The little Santa I made it a couple of weeks ago, and now they hung around together!!
                     Happy times are coming, enjoy it with all your loved ones! Thanks for visiting and see you  around!

  1. Hi Pilar,
    What a fantastic post.
    I love all your decorations, but the African flower! Wow! what a fantastic idea! Simply gorgeous. Your tree looks lovely. You've done more than me. I've only managed to put up the small one, which has actually turned out bigger than in the shop. I couldn't put the branches in properly. Seems to be taller than what it should be.
    I'm so pleased you read about the visit. I had a lovely time. In fact they have invited Mr. T and myself this evening to watch a play. So Mrs Twins finally manages to go out on a Saturday night!
    Thanks for your comments on the other Charity idea. I think that is a really good idea. That everyone sends their own. That way it wont cost Brenda a lot or myself. Then if everyone sends just one square that would be okay for them too.
    Its just finding the best way to do things I think.
    I am nearly finished the Jan Eaton, bigger than what I thought a lot of work because there is a lot of 'filling'. Must get these squares the same size! Doing my best anyway.
    Have a good weekend. You've been busy at work by the sounds, nice to chat with you.
    Love suex
