My Christmas Stove

Just wanted to share a few pictures of my home decorated for Christmas in case you don't have the time to pop over to my Christmas blog. The latest post is on gathering greenery to decorate the home at Christmas - I share my favourite greenery from Eight Acres of Eden that I use to decorate my home at Christmas along with some tips and inspirations for using natural materials to bring the spirit and scent of Christmas into your home. Here are a few pictures of my beloved Stanley stove in all its Christmas finery!

A peek at my handmade Christmas bon bons for our table this year! I can tell you I'm sparkling this Christmas - that glitter paper looks lovely but the glitter drops and gets everywhere!

Just about to go and make one of these - my first batch of gingerbread for Christmas - if it turns out well I will take some as a gift for my daughter's Mandarin and Art Teacher today to say thank you for all the effort she has put into her students. If you read my last post 'An Art Prize' you will understand why I want to especially thank her on behalf of my daughter!

Hope you are enjoying your Christmas preparations.

With Love and Joy,

Computer timed out so unsure if my comment went thru!!! Grrrr!!!
I had said ....Your cooker is a beautiful showpiece and I am guessing though it won't be cooking Christmas lunch though!
candlelight makes such a difference !

I just love your stove Ann - you have decorated it beautifully!
We are getting an old woodfired oven for our Christmas gift to each other (both Dave & I want one), but it is old & we have a lot of cleaning up to do, but I hope it turns out as nicely as your Stan there!
Have a wonderful time - I'm sorry I've missed your previous post, but I will go & read it now!
Have fun
