Christmas arrivals!

Magpie came and dropped off a delightful basket of presents......
And as always they are beautifully decorated, this year with jewelled birdies in all colours, I especially like the look of this red sparkly chap.
There are frosted pine cones too!

These are my presents ready to go home with her, I too have a sparkly birdy label theme!

Another arrival in the post, can you guess who it's from?

Yes, from Nicky at the Vintage Magpie "Olivia" has arrived just in time to join in the festive chaos here down the Lane.
Here she is all pleased to be unwrapped and ready to explore! She has brought along her very own stocking too!

She is flushed with all the excitement but ready for her close up


Look at those rosy cheeks


Not content with the view from the bed she makes a break for the shelves, hmm much better now I can see the snow in the garden!


Another arrival was the new issue of RED magazine.
I am huge fan of Mary Norden and this Christmas shoot is so divine!


Oh to live in a world where I could group pots and pots of cyclamen in my hall and interspace them with baubles and tea lights.......................


Oh to live in a world where I could manage to stay upright in those heels!


Doesn't it all look wonderful?


And whilst I can only dream of achieving such a glorious sparkly Christmas interior I can absoloutely concur with the sentiment

I hope you are all busy filling your homes with friends, fizz and happiness x

  5. Olivia is just precious and looks so cute on your shelf! So you have snow...good for you. We have a bit left but it is way too cold to snow now.

    Just starting to wrap gifts and your post sure has been a wonderful inspiration. Everything is so lovely, the birdies and all.

    So is RED a particularly popular magazine in your country? It looks interesting. And although I'd have a bit of a problem in those heels, I do love the shoes!! ;-)

    Merry Christmas to you & yours!

  10. What a lovely bunny!
    Not so keen on the high heels myself, but they would make a change from wellies, which is pretty much all I've been wearing on my feet lately!
