Robins in the snow

Hello lovelies, hope your run up to Christmas is going well.
I was wrapping till midnight last night and it's still not completely finished .
Whilst I was wrapping the snow began to fall , so festive :0)

Today I wanted to show you some other festive goodness....Robins , don't you just love this cute little bird.
This is a Christmas card made by one of my eldest.....

I was really impressed with this watercolour. ...

This morning I ventured into our snowy garden and spotted this cutie....

No he's not real, but crochet....

I made him earlier this week , love how he turned out :0)..... pattern HERE....

Right better get on with my long list of jobs.

If I don't get a minute to post again, I hope all you lovely people have a peaceful, relaxing, fun Christmas.
Remember it's just one day and if you are feeling stressed out by it all this post is a brilliant antidote :0)

HAPPY CHRISTMAS and THANKYOU for welcoming me into the lovely blog community,see you again soon.

  10. Robins are my favourites. My mum always says that they are the best as they don't desert us here in the UK for warmer climes during the really cold weather. The watercolour robin is very artistic, I'd love that on a Christmas card and if it were mine I'd have it copied, printed and made into personal cards. Have a very Merry Christmas XxX

  11. What a wonderful card, you must be so proud.
    Have a great xmas.xx
