Christmas Eve

Eat your heart out Kirstie Allsop! Its Jackie's home made christmas. Well...a wreath anyway. A nice slender non- plastic wreath made from a piece of Russian Vine and various bits of greenery.
OK OK the apples and the gold leaves are some sort of plastic but the rest... well... its natural.
I love it. 
Even the lavendar bush has had a touch of glam for the festive season.
So my front door looks very Christmassy and might detract from the awful state of the garden!
And inside? well Hetty and I have been busy...
Can you guess what we've been a doing of?
Making snowflakes.

I just got the urge..
And these are genuine 6 sided snowflakes..not just easy 8 fold paper shapes as seen around t'inter web.
I always insisted when we made these at school that they were authentically 6 sided.
I really enjoyed making these. And then.....and then......I did what every 'cute-dog-owning-person should do.

I got out the treats and struggled..

and struggled
till I got Hetty as an Angel!
The following pictures tell the story.



Merry Christmas everyone!

What a lovely Christmas post! Love the wreath and snowflakes but your dear little angel looks less than happy with her costume!
Have a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year.

Hetty didn't look very happy about having to wear the wings and halo, with that stern face and those bright eyes glaring at the camera. Too cute!

A very merry Christmas to you!

Ha ! ... and a merry christmas to you Jackie !
(and to your man and your "angel"!)

Rosie said...

That's funny, I was making (well trying to make) snowflakes with a grand-daughter recently, and as she informed me turned out to be "rubbish" at it. I'd forgotten how to do it but you obviously haven't! Hetty looks adorable but not very happy about something ....

A joyous Christmas to you - with Hetty about that's a certainty!
