Christmas is coming

I love the Christmas season, but not the rush.

I enjoy looking through my box of Christmas decorations, but still the one that inspires is a wooden bowl of seed pods I've added to over the years.  Initially it was bought at an auction and I love the wonder of shape and texture of so many seeds.  And I know children love this wonder also.

The one red berry is a gift of my long gone Grandmother who loved Christmas and loved giving.

I've added to the collection this year- a brush work squirrel I found at Homebase in London- most of the ornaments were brush- like.

Do you have a favourite ornament that brings a rush of memory or emotion?

Wishing you all the joy and peace of Christmas.
