About Christmas...

 
a big fat christmas hug to you all!
 
i've been waiting to find an excuse for a bit of nigella lighting...
and christmas is that opportunity!
 
 
 
 
{i've been admiring her lit up pantry shelves for months.}
 
i love having the excuse to buy gifts...
 
to eat the sweet delights i've fasted from over the last three months...
 
to have my mr w home for two weeks
&
as much of the family around as is possible these days.
 
as has already been said 'presence is much more important than presents'.
 
 
but there is a Presence
that puts purpose and perspective into the celebration of christmas
for me.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 

but have
 


 

...this says it all for me.


wishing you and your family

a thoroughly blessed and abundant

Christmas...

with heaps of fun, friendship and family

&

a peaceful, prosperous and joy filled

year to come!

  12. I tried very hard to send a comment yesterday. He in hospital I seem to only get a wifi slot in the early morning. This is my 4th attempt hen I'll just have to leave it. I love the mugs and the way you've lit them. I haven't seen that done before and it really looks good. Might give it a go myself sometime! I also love the Christmas embroidery. I do hope that Christmas is a wonderful time o love and joy for you! Joan
