I had a really nice surprise yesterday, one of our suppliers sent me some flowers.
It was such a festive thought that I decorated my vase to match.
Same technique as for Sam's T-shirt (here), just layers of ribbon. This time I put a strip of double sided tape on the back of the vase and wrapped the ribbons around one at a time - very festive.
I hope you will forgive me but i have been unable to find those missing Challenge goodies, I tore the exhibition stand to bits yesterday looking for them. I tried to call Florence but she didn't pick up. I have no idea what has happened to them, it will drive me crazy all Christmas. So a huge apology to those of you wonderful challengers whose goodies have gone missing. We will start the challenges again in the new year, so please do not hold this against me.
Due to the snow we have had no post deliveries since thursday, but yesterday our postie arrived with an armful of wonderful cards and a super prezzie parcel from Gail and family. I had reindeer poo (very nice!), snowman soup, choccie tree decs and a delightful bracelet with beads spelling Ali. Thanks guys it was a true surprise. I have packed all the goodies in my case, Tony and I are trying to leave frozen England today to a slightly warmer climate. Not very far only to Brittany, but our friends tell us the sun is shining and it is about 5-7degrees during the day - perfect.
Wish us luck getting to Plymouth, as long as we have no new snow today we should be ok. We are leaving early and have packed blankets, a shovel, food and a big thermos of tea!!!!!
