December 3rd

My advent gift today is a set of chalk board gift tags.
A mix of patterns means I can use some for Christmas and others for birthdays.
Really useful and very cute.

It's been a couple of weeks since I watched a movie as part of my birthday year of activities and after watching Far From Heaven I can tell you it was worth the wait.
This movie was chosen as the lead actress Julianne Moore has her birthday today.
The movie is set in Connecticut in 1957 and concerns the seemingly perfect life of homemaker Cathy Whittaker. 
The film explores issues of sexual and racial discrimination during this era and the film was shot in movie style of this time.
The sets are immaculate and just look at the costumes too. The clothing echos the natural beauty found in the many outdoor scenes.
G and I both enjoyed this movie and it's one we would heartily recommend.


  1. The tags are a good idea. My brother-in-law bought some lovely gold material ribbons and white sparkly material pieces which he wraps the family Christmas presents in every year which is lovely as he reuses them like this!

  2. I haven't seen gift tags like those before, what a good idea. Glad you enjoyed the film.

  3. Those gift tags look great.
    Thanks for the film recommendation.

    All the best Jan
