Nearly ready….

I charged at today, have been here there and everywhere. And an hour ago finally hand delivered local Christmas cards, and slowly it’s dawning on me that I can now relax, I either will or won’t fit in everything I planned ,so, I can enjoy the final days of preparation for a great big fat family Christmas. The adrenalin is draining away and I feel chilled and oh so HAPPY.

This was inspired by the materials I had to hand and a blog I read earlier this week- wish I had written down whose blog it was so I could thank them too.

One vanilla candle, in a glass pot and basket which had a hyacinth  in last year, anchored into some dry oasis, surrounded by glass beads, a string of beads and some baubles,. Simple.

And this so effective vase of baubles- vase from a flower arrangement which I was sent for  a Mother’s Day a few years ago and baubles originally used when I went on a flower arranging course for Christmas two years ago. Again inspired by a blogger whose name I didn’t record.

Thank you.
