Christmas is coming...

Feeling festive, I listed another Christmas card I've printed onto Folksy... find it here...http://folksy.com/items/3922638-Lino-Printed-Christmas-Card-Baubles


With a bit of persuasion this week my husband dug around in the attic and brought down the Christmas decorations. I am a bit obsessive about collecting vintage glass baubles, I have far more than any woman would realistically need but I just can't resist them... all shiny and colourful, like sweets. I've collected them over years, mostly from car boot sales, charity shops and occasionally from ebay. Some are hand painted and are just beautiful. These are my favourites...

 
I also dusted off the angel that sits at the top of our tree this year. I remember being presented with her when I was at Play group (I could only have been three or four years old but I have a bizarre memory for such things). She has a yellowing crepe paper dress, her wings are held on with a rubber band and her eyes are struggling to open. She looks pretty mournful and her party days are behind her but she reminds me of Christmases past so she's here to stay.
