Making her happy ...

... lunch with a beautiful group of ladies,
laughing and chatting, 
in a lovely Sherborne restaurant.
Just perfect!
Gorgeous wreath,
bought whilst out shopping with two wonderful friends.
Wrapping presents and adding handcrafted tags,
a gift last year from the lovely Kris ...
Loving new additions to her kitchen ...
Pretty cake stand from Niki's beautiful shop ...
A few more mismatched little spoons ... 
to add to her motley collection ...
And a big lump of glass ...
An oversized flower arranger's 'frog'... 
perfect for storing cutlery!
A lovely French meat plate for Christmas day ...
A wonderful card of press studs (and some pretty buttons), 
won in 'Flaming Nora's' giveaway.
And the diddy tree ...
decorated by little man ...
Life has been presenting her with a few challenges,
but these little things have been her tonic.

She has the bestest friends and family and ...
Christmas is coming!

Lovely idea to give your little man his own tree to decorate, wish I'd thought of that when my son was small and wanted to'decorate' the tree. Hope you have a lovely Christmas.

Hi M,
Thanks so much for the mention...It was lovely to see you in my little shoppe! :) So pleased the cake stand has a beautiful new home...and your cutlery idea is fantastic! - Those frogs never seem to work well for flowers, so this is a whole other use for them!

Adore the wreath - so faded and pretty.
Merry Christmas!
