A very Merry Christmas

Dear Bonny Jean

I know it’s your turn for a post but I wanted to thank you for my lovely Christmas presents.

So many presents!

I love my little owl emery board and the herb scissors. I now understand why they couldn’t go in my hand luggage!

My Africa necklace made from a 1c ‘South African’ coin is so beautiful.
I haven’t taken it off since Christmas morning and it was my favourite gift.

Then I opened my big box from Phil and found this… And now I have 2 favourites!

Isn’t it beautiful? He made it for me and I absolutely love it. It’s also filled with my favourite chocolate which is quite hard to find here. I’m not sure how he kept it a secret!

Christmas morning walk around Ottery st Mary

I had a lovely few days away with Phil’s Family. We gave ‘traditional’ a slight miss this year and I made Beef Wellington which was huge and delicious.

We all chipped in and made a meal for each day so that Gill didn’t do it
all and we were very well fed!
‘Too well’ some said groaning, with no space for cheese and biscuits!

I hope you had a lovely Christmas and can’t wait to hear all about it! Thank you again for spoiling us!
I miss you so much. T

In time for Christmas

Dearest Bonny Jean

I finished the wedding dress commission and couldn’t wait to share the photos with you!
The happy customer loved it all including some extra smaller bowls and the Christmas birds I made for her!

This wedding video clip she sent me is so special that I just had to share it with you again!

I miss you all so much! A two week visit just doesn’t do it. And November feels like ages ago now…

My lack of weather...

I wish I was with you in the summer sun and the afternoon thunderstorms – travelling the country to see family.
I hope you have a lovely Christmas and a very Happy New Year!
with all my love xx
