Day 4 in Week of Christmas

Day 4 folks in Cheryll's week of Christmas  Have we seen yours yet??? Have you popped over to see all the lovely decorating around in Blogland? Oh there is some gorgeous Christmas candy to see.
I thought I would share a couple more ornaments but first a little piece of my Frosty corner on my hutch. I really love painted Christmas decorations and this one is a fav....snowman and gingerbreads...
Speaking of Gingerbreads, this is a little 'gingie' corner of my kitchen.
Are you ready for another lot of ornies.
Firstly a lovely frosty wedgewood one.
These next two hale from Canada and the silver snowflake is from the New York Metropolitan Museum.
Lastly a hand painted glass one from Austria.
Keeping in the Christmas Spirit yesterday I took my Mum to my Stitching Friends Group Christmas lunch. We had the loveliest time. The girls all bought little gifts for my Mum so she would feel included. She was so touched by it all. Here we are enjoying ourselves.
Our lovely friend Jacky hosted our lunch and she decorated the table beautifully. We all bring a plate and always end up with a delicious feast. Aren't we a good looking bunch...a real bevy of beauties.
In case you were wondering Santa obviously thought I was VERY good this year and my wonderful Secret Santa Kay made me the most gorgeous "Frosty" table centre which just looks great under my Frosty tree.
I have said it before and I am going to say it again, I feel so blessed to have these special ladies in my life and their kindness to my Mum really touched my heart.
"Friends are the gift you give yourself"
