little things {christmas}



Little things that make our world. Things I want to capture, tuck away and peak at another day....and smile.

Christmas card making with scraps of vintage wrapping paper and old cardboard folders.
"Better than ANY in the shops!" she declared.
A thoughtful and oh so beautiful gift from a dear friend.
The wicker basket of Christmas books. She is often found quietly reading them...he is always perched beside her.
One eager beaver turned all coy when it finally came time to sit with Santa. The other thought it was all completely unsatisfactory!
Chrissie pud and custard.
Peppermint bark. Oh my!
Pudding making with Nana complete with threepences.
Our dinner table.
A whisker of Christmas tree caught up in her hair.  Squeals of laughter when I showed her it was there.

Wishing you all the most beautiful and indulgent of Christmases filled with song, laughter and much hope and peace. May the bearded man bring you something lovely too!

Joining in with the lovely Em and the lovely Lou.
