Hello friends & hello Christmas
I do love this time of year ~ the freshness of summer produce, the trimmings of all things christmassy and finally a less intense work schedule means that I have to time faff, photograph & catch up with friends & family…
Colours of summer

With just a few more sleeps…
Xmas, elements i love, antiques

…we are finishing the final wrapping ... This year there has been a strong split  between a ‘traditionalist’ {me} with holy patterned paper & red ribbon – versus ms teens cutesy instagram hip look complete with letterpress cards!

Like so many friends, Christmas cooking has always been a much loved tradition at this time of year. My mother has been baking a brandy soaked fruit cake for as long as i can remember..and I always love the chance to try out saved recipes on unsuspecting family & friends! elements i love, vintage, antiques, baking

and finally there are ‘those’ decorations, you know the ones, that come out each year, passed down, some treasured and some found P1420704but our favourite tradition of all is to escape to the coast, like many families we pack the car and drive …. Wishing you a Merry Christmas where ever this finds you!
Thanks so much for all your support through out the year and i look forward to sharing some summer ‘daze’ on the next blog post, {or find me on instagram, i love to take the odd holiday snap!}
We will be closed until January 12th 2016… Have a great NEW YEAR ♥
