The Countdown to Christmas...

Christmas is just a few weeks away and I'm sooooo excited! I love Christmas. I was a bit 'meh' about it for a few years there but it got me again with all of it's happy festiveness and paid days off from work. We've already seen a few Christmas cartoons and watched A Christmas Carol. Below are a few Christmassy snaps from my instagram this weekend...


The mini tree is up and the presents wrapped, now we just need Christmas morning...bah humbug!



I've been sewing in stops and starts over the last few weeks on this dress. But as I type, I only have a few small hand sewing bits and pieces to finish and then it's done! It looks a little Christmassy non? Proper photos to come next weekend.



We had a major heat wave on Friday and Saturday and little Mocha-bee and Monty-moo didn't quite know what to do with themselves except lounge around the house only getting up every few minutes to change positions below the fan.


And I may have let The Bee have a small taste of this Christmas pudding ice cream to cool down. Monty wasn't interested.


Mini Chrismas pudding truffles!!

I hope you've all had a lovely weekend.

  1. I can't wait to see your finished dress, it looks gorgeous! And by the way, how is it that you have so many presents bought and wrapped by the 2nd December!! Bit jealous of your organisation :p

  3. I love Christmas! I can't wait for Christmas morning. I have never heard of christmas pudding ice cream. I might have to try that.

  4. I love your mini tree, it's so sweet!

    I felt so sorry for all pets during the heat wave - my dog was sitting in a tub of water to cool down.

  5. Oh my word, Christmas pudding ice cream...how have I gone 28 years on earth without trying this before - and moreover, why don't they sell it here in Canada? :)

    Your decorations are so delightful. I put our little (and it is small - but hopefully will expand more and more with each passing yard sale season) collection up the week before last, and soon we'll fetch a tree to complete the decor (can't wait - I haven't had a live one in years!).

    Happiest holiday season wishes, dear gal!

  6. I am such a lazy bum- we haven't even put our tree up yet!

    We are getting the horrid weather up here now- although not quite as hot as you guys had it- only 35 degrees, but it's so humid here that I spent the whole day dripping in sweat. Very ladylike.
