Hurrah, it's nearly Christmas!
Sorry it's taken me so long to post again, I've been running around shopping and it's hardly stopped raining - oh except when I was work. Never mind. Here I am.
I've been really lucky with parcels recently, here's some cards and fantastically real looking meringue mushrooms from the very talented Bella's giveaway
I also took part in the Faith Hope and Charity Shopping Christmas swap, my partner was the lovely Kezzie who sent me the following:
Handmade Hello Kitty earrings, handmade decoration, poppy pottery pot, hilarious fortune telling cards, hello kitty brolly, already used a lot and some marshmallows, which have been already eaten!
Thanks so much Kezzie, they're all fantastic!
I've picked up some hideously tacky decorations this week:
Glass polar bear, horrible Santas, one antlered deer - Babycham? 70s decorations all 10p-50p, I also picked up a couple of moon, sun and star decorations -remember them?
I also got a package of love from Curitse
The mad batwing 80s dress is really comfortable and I've already worn it, a Madonna and Child to add to my collection and a little dog to join the other two I have
Ivy Wreath - from a garden fence (not mine)
Jacket - Ebay
Dress - seen in a previous post, since been chopped up
Dog - a bit pukey, poor thing
I've been tracing loads of my family recently and I found a great-great-great-great uncle William West who was imprisoned for stealing hay. The local council has a fantastic database which shows photos of some of the Victorian prisoners of Aylesbury jail. I took the unusual step of making brooch of his photo...
Here's the village Christmas tree, it's huge!

Have a wonderful Christmas everyone. Here's my warmest fuzziest Christmas tune
