The Scent of Christmas

Its beginning to' smell a lot like Christmas' at our house, for as soon as you walk in your senses are awoken by the fragrant scents of cinnamon , cloves and orange and everyone wants to know where that delicious smell is coming from ! Well actually although I would like to say I have been busy baking,it is actually from a lovely bottle of room spray. It does the most wonderful job of making the feel of the Chistmas season come alive . Add to that a few drops of Culpepper winter oil ,pot purri and that is all you need.

When you come home in the evening though feeling a little cold, tired and frazzled, try some of the delicious Mulled wine, warmed up ,its good for you as its full of lovely spices , just the thing to sip in front of the fire!The one seen here is the real thing from Germany and the one served at the winter fairs.

I don't  think we will see a White Christmas this year ,they forecast a wet one instead... although you never know. The two snowy picture here were taken in 1993 and 1996 ,one in mums garden in wigan the other here, We haven't seen that much snow in the last few years.
I have been scrapbooking in the evenings while watching the tv and the one of Ginger here and the 'sewing box are the latest for my album, also have been making scented bags and  have knitting on the go to, so keeping busy.
At least all my gifts are bought and wrapped, glad about that as it was busy in town when I called into the Debenhams sale yesterday... didn't get tempted .. amazing ha!
Thanks to everyone who contacted me about the blog photos over the year and I will be sending calendars with some of the photos on to those who asked as soon as possible!
