The Velveteen Rabbit

One of my all time favourite stories - I sat down with my 2 little ones in bed the other night and read this story. My youngest began to snore, but my 10 year old listenend to every word. She has a horse that I always tell her is real, as all it's fur is being "loved" off.
Some new Christmas Decs from Daylesford - a lovely trip on Sunday with a friend. I think I will post the angel to my mother and the bird to my sister who live far far away. I will keep the pear.
Look closely at the wreath ... made of puzzle pieces. A great school activity done last year by my "Preppie."

Some more cushions! I was going to give one away, but they make such a lovely pair and look great on my dark leather couch, so I'm going to keep them - I put my special Parisian Lace that my friend Katie brought back from Paris on one of them.

A new address book for 2008 - and a headband for my daughter and her friend. They will enjoy being twins at school.

I love that story but only bought the book recently and read it myself. The cushions look fabulous and I wouldn't be able to give them away either.
Love all you pictures. So clear, bright, cheery and lots of Christmas spirit.

What a lovely Christmasy post. The cushions are brilliant and should definitely be kept as a pair! Love the Velveteen rabbit and all the Chrissy goodies. We must have the same taste as I bought the exact same angel ornament the other day and gave it to a lovely friend of mine!Nearly holiday time!:)

Lovely decorations I especially like the pear. Isn't it nice to make something you think you will give away then keep it - it's like a give to yourself.
