Bayleaves and lemon balm from our next door neighbour for Christmas.
Half burnt candles and little tube station sign magnetic book marks, these were from inside a cracker.
We've found an accidental tradition, for the last three years Coco has made 'Christmas crowns'. I can't quite bring myself to throw them away yet so they are lying discarded around the place...
My favourite new bauble from our Liberty visit. Our tree is staying until twelfth night, even though discarded trees are already piling up in the local park.
Gold twigs in the kitchen
The holly has nearly lost all of its leaves.
A box of paper recycling still sits in the corner of the kitchen. I'll probably end up keeping some of the wrapping paper (can't resist) I might even salvage the toilet rolls from the crackers. Coco and I ended up making the crackers on Christmas day in a mini crafting flurry. I'm wondering if I should just make up a few more now and put them in our decorations box ready for next year.
We've started on the thank you cards.
Our semi naked Christmas cake never did get iced. Our neighbour came over on Chrismtas eve with a freshly made
I think this Christmas cake is about to become Henry's birthday cake. The next celebration on the horizon.
