Happy Feet

How cool are these shoes?
They belong to my younger daughter, who is usually away at university doing Illustration, but is at home at the moment for the Christmas holidays. The shoes were a Christmas present from her sister. They have both been at home this week because the older one has had a few days holiday from work.
I still feel as though I am trapped inside Christmas, but I can now see light at the end of the tunnel. There is a feeling of slowly returning to a normal routine. It's nice to get back to normal meals after so much (too much!) rich Christmas food.

Let It Snow

Here are some jolly snowmen who make an appearance every year in our house.

I don't go overboard with Christmas decorations, but I like to think these are tasteful.

I didn't make them all at once, but one at a time over a few years. I think they look nice displayed on the mantelpiece with lots of greenery.

And here's a friendly gingerbread man saying Hello.
