Santa's On His Way

Hello folks. Just dropping in before  Christmas to wish you all the best. It's been  a busy little household around here with 2 Grandchildren come to stay while their parents went away to New York city for 10 days.
I had an expert helper baking cakes....Miss E. Did all but the hot bits and was so thrilled with her efforts ......she can't wait to give one to Great Granddad!
We then tackled Christmas Bikkies for Mummy and Daddy.....also informed me that she was having a "nightie day" to do baking lol! Just like her Nana....

Visits to the park were fun....

Serious games of skill with Grampy....
Mummy and Daddy arrived home today to huge excitement..... just in time for Santa.
Yours truly received some gorgeous additions to my Christmas decorations all the way from New York city.
My all time favourite.....Jim add to my collection! *sigh* isn't the Nativity Angel just beautiful!  Very spoilt!

Love my new tree ornies too....the gold/red apple is from historic Macy's.
I have also received some lovely Christmas mail.
A beautiful Tilda Angel from Fiona.....she has the sweetest face.
 Gorgeous tea towels from Sue with a darling card....some favourite Aussies!
The sweetest Polar Bear and beautiful handmade card from Karen...he is a darling.
And last but not least....another special Beatrix Potter card, all the way from Sue in the UK to add to my it!

Thank you all so very much for adding to my joy this Christmas.
I wish you all the love and peace of the season, in which ever way you choose to it with family or friends.....large or small. If you are struggling I wish you comfort and blessings also.
Merry Christmas to you and your loved ones.
Namaste and blessings Michelle xxx
