Advent Calender Day 16 - Tree After Dressed

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well.

It's Day 16 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt

Where is the time going!....

The prompt today is

Tree After Dressed





This is the tree that came from our old home and I am quite attached to it....maybe next year we will have a new tree and this little number will be moved to the snug.

We have just finished renovating this room but we are still waiting for the rug to arrive and the curtains and new cushions to be finished but we'll get there.....

I love our new wood burner....and log store (waiting for logs too)....all building work by my very clever husband.....


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Advent Calendar Day 14 - Christmas Crackers

Hello there again.

Still playing catch-up.

So on Day 14 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt

The prompt was

Christmas Crackers

Well I couldn't find any photographs of Christmas crackers but we had these crackers made as wedding favours for our wedding in April this year.....I loved them and they were perfect for our table settings.

Advent Calender Day 13 - First Christmas Card Received In The Post.

Hi there everyone.

I hope you are all well.

I know, I know, I know....here I am playing catch up again....

On Day 13 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt

The prompt was

First Christmas Card Received In The Post


This is a lovely card sent by a very dear family friend who lives in Bury, Lancashire (where my mother comes from). 

I was christened on a snowy Christmas Eve 50 years ago at Guardian Angels Church in Bury.....not that I remember anything about it as I was only four weeks old at the time but I have spent a lot of time in Bury since.

Advent Calendar Day 12 - Angel

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well.

So we are on to Day 12 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

And today's prompt is

Angel


Another decoration from our tree. There are seven of these angels....all different.

They belong to my daughter and were given to her by my mum. She had collected 21 or more over time and then decided to split them between her three grand-daughters. Brogan, my daughter was given all the blonde/fair haired ones as she is blonde....my brothers girl's got the dark haired angels as they dark haired.

They are beautiful and are rather delicate and my tree won't look the same when my daughter eventually leaves home and takes them for her own tree.....


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Advent Calendar Day 11 - Snowman

Hello everyone.

I can't believe it's Day 11 already of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

Today's prompt is

Snowman




Ok....I know this is a 'Snow-Woman' but her husband, the little skating 'Snowman' is at the back of our Christmas tree this year so I couldn't get round to photograph him....so 'Snow-Woman' will have to do I'm afraid.

I bought these years ago and can't remember where I got them....nevermind I'm sure it'll come to me.....eventually.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Hi there everyone.

 Day 10 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.....and I'm a day late again....sorry

Yesterday's  prompt was

Holly & Ivy


This is my daughter's sheet music for the trumpet for the carol 'The Holly & The Ivy'. Her music book is 'vintage'....it's old!!!

She is trying to learn all her music for next week when she along with the rest of her marching band will be playing carols on the prom....Brrrrr....it's going to be so cold.....Bless them! 

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.
