I had so many gorgeous and thoughtful gifts this Christmas.
Here is just a snippet.

The heart fabric these items are sat on is a shopping bag. The round pretty face is a handbag mirror bought from this very talented artist and the heart calculator is just one gift from my sister with whom I do the pre loved items only rule. I now have half a wardrobe full of new clothes because of her thrifty finds.

A lovely pile of new books topped off with an polka dot apple money box.
Just a small selection of my new brooches and bracelets.

A wonderful surprise gift which I have worn twice already from the wonderfully kind Michela

Snuggly PJ's and socks from my ever thoughtful husband.
Yes well and truly spoilt!
These past few days we have spent time finding new homes for our lovely new things, having a sort out as we go and that ended with 4 bags of things being taken to the charity shop today. I have also rearranged my kitchen cupboards which felt very good to do too.
What has been a real treat though is listening to T and S playing make believe games together and getting along so well.
Not much happening in our house tonight although there are 2 very excited children rushing around the house at the moment. I'm sure I'll be asleep before midnight even if they aren't!
Wishing everyone a very happy, healthy and joyous new year.
