I hope that you are well - thank you as always for kind wallpaper comments. With old houses you never really finish decorating and I now realise that this house will never be 'done' - just a process of refinement (sort of). Talking of refinement I am desparado to clear some 'stuff'' and the spare bedroom is rapido filling up with my 'reading rid of' section - mind you when I wistfully see very similar 'stuff' appearing on blogs I have great pangs of regret - daft as it is only STUFF.
I have been caught up in the whiff of Christmas appearing on blogs. I have opened the Christmas Cupboard (little fanfare) and started thinking up the theme for the display for this year. For starters let us discuss..... Christmas cards. I have four approaches to Christmas cards
1. Don't send them
2. Send home made
3. Send old
4. Donate to charity (as feel guilty for all of the above!)
So these are my Christmas cards - these ones are sort of home made! They all feature Christmas things from our home.... there is a bit to choose from.... here you can see photographs of paper bunting that I have made, our old table runner, old tins, old Christmas magazines, old tablecloths, old decorations, one of the wreaths that I have made from old stuff..... All sorts that I think look purdy for Christmas. These are pricey I think (our printer is not up to printing these out so have to sent away to be done) so not a cheapo (sorry a bit of Italian creeping in - I just cannot help myself nowadays!) Christmas card option.
Some of these things merit a little posting all of their own ...one in particular is my favourite thing...which one is it do you think?
This afternoon I am launching my brand new shop called 'The Custards Christmas Cards' (TCCC) for a unique line in cards this season...ho ho.
The other option is so use up old stock that has not been used before and I will be posting about that next time!

Fiddle de dee
Off I go
And will show you next time we have some tea....
PS I have been invited to apply for a little job in Jersey - I haven't been there for years but do still have some things that I bought whilst there - anyone know if Jersey is rich in vintage goodies? That might be the deal breaker!!!!
PPS Apologies for 'genderism' on previous post - thank you once again to The Hattatts for appropriate reminder.
