too many marshmallows

My friend Amy spoiled me with this beautiful Tord Boontje vase cover for Christmas. I also got spoilt with two more books and an amazing Russian salt and pepper set. My batteries have run out for my camera. Not having too much luck with it at the moment. The books I will share with you tomorrow. One is really really special. My camera did not do this Tord Boontje vase cover justice so I had to use this one. It is just so delicate and will take pride of place on the mantelpiece when the decs come down.
Today I made this.



Boy did I have fun making this today, but feeling a little sick now. I'm afraid it was one marshmallow for the snow and one for my mouth. Without showing off it really does look way better than this photo in real life. It is sparkly and really colourful. New years resolution....buy a new camera!



Tomorrow is the second to last of my Christmas painting deliveries, over in Derbyshire. I am combining it with a little trip over to see my very best friend up in t'hills. We will do lunch and swap presents and talk and talk and talk and laugh a lot, its been too long!!!! I am trying to see as many of my friends as I can before Christmas as I have been rubbish and not sent or made a single card this year. It is of course much nicer to see people anyway, To those I don't, I'm sorry, you are in my thoughts. xxx

Yehh!! I love your little house. It's great. I almost picked up one of those Ikea kits recently. The marshmallow smoke is a great touch!

ps. I'm sooo jealous of your vase cover. I wish we could get those decorations (from Target) I keep seeing on people's blogs over here in the UK.

I know, I know. I am keeping my eye out for them on ebay. The garland they have all got is soooo lovely. You should nip over to Ikea to get one of those kits, I had so much fun, and no mixing and baking involved! I was kind of proud of my smoke until my boyfriend asked what had happened to the chimney!!!! Derrr, glad you noticed! x
