Advent Calendar Day 12 - Angel

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well.

So we are on to Day 12 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

And today's prompt is

Angel


Another decoration from our tree. There are seven of these angels....all different.

They belong to my daughter and were given to her by my mum. She had collected 21 or more over time and then decided to split them between her three grand-daughters. Brogan, my daughter was given all the blonde/fair haired ones as she is blonde....my brothers girl's got the dark haired angels as they dark haired.

They are beautiful and are rather delicate and my tree won't look the same when my daughter eventually leaves home and takes them for her own tree.....


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your evening.

Advent Calendar Day 11 - Snowman

Hello everyone.

I can't believe it's Day 11 already of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

Today's prompt is

Snowman




Ok....I know this is a 'Snow-Woman' but her husband, the little skating 'Snowman' is at the back of our Christmas tree this year so I couldn't get round to photograph him....so 'Snow-Woman' will have to do I'm afraid.

I bought these years ago and can't remember where I got them....nevermind I'm sure it'll come to me.....eventually.

Hi there everyone.

Yesterday's  prompt was

Holly & Ivy


This is my daughter's sheet music for the trumpet for the carol 'The Holly & The Ivy'. Her music book is 'vintage'....it's old!!!

She is trying to learn all her music for next week when she along with the rest of her marching band will be playing carols on the prom....Brrrrr....it's going to be so cold.....Bless them!

Advent Calendar Day 9 - Christmas Bauble

Hello there again everyone.

It's already Day 9 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.....where did that go!!!...

And today's prompt is

Christmas Bauble

As our tree isn't up yet and all decorations are still packed away I thought I would share some of the Christmas cards/decorations that I have made for Christmas's gone by that have a bauble on....


With matching gift bag...







And finally a tea light decoration



It ages since I made a card or gift item like these...maybe I should add that to my increasing 'To Do' list in the New Year.


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Advent Calendar Day 8 - Sleigh

Hello everyone.

I hope you are all well.

It's on to Day 8 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

And today's prompt is

Sleigh



I struggled with this one a little bit but then remembered I had bought six of these cross stitch beaded tree ornaments to make to go with the Santa's I had started......so I think I now have seven more Santa's to make and now these sleighs. That should keep me out of trouble....!!!

Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

I really do appreciate your visits and lovely, encouraging comments.

Enjoy the rest of your day.

Advent Calendar Day 7 - Bell(s)

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.

It's Day 7 of Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

And today's prompt is

Bell(s)


This is my little man...Monty. He is now 15 weeks old and very happy to wear a bell on his collar....we're very happy too as we know where he is!!!!...

It's not the best picture of a bell but I have found another

Bell(s)....

Trumpet Bell


This is my lovely daughter tuning up to play 'The Last Post' at the cenotaph this year.

I was incredibly proud of her and it certainly brought tears to my eyes especially as she has only been playing the trumpet for 18 months or so.

With other members of the ECE marching band...


and another bell....

Bell Of The Ball



My daughter and her boyfriend Matthew dancing the waltz for charity.

They learnt the waltz in 8 weeks and danced for Cancer Research. 

They did amazingly well and came second, by one point with a score of 29.....

Another reason to be a proud mum.....

And the ballroom shoes she was wearing (had) belonged to Joanne Clifton no less....Brogan was very lucky to be able to wear them....

A very special 'Thanks' to Joanne's mum and Joanne of course for loaning them to her for this event....I'm sure they brought her luck....x


Thank you for taking the time to stop by.

Advent Calendar Day 6 - Robin

Good morning everyone.

I hope you are all well.


It's on to Day 6 of  Julie's Advent Scavenger Hunt.

And today's prompt is

Robin


I took this photograph a couple of years ago on a visit to Falling Foss, Whitby.

This little robin was singing away to me while perched on this boulder at the side of my car....he was so close I could almost touch him and he was extremely happy amongst us....it may have had something to do with free titbits....

I just adore robins....

I even buy my daughter a robin ornament for her Christmas tree every year.
