At least now they are no longer filling our days so early with Christmas Cheer.
So to start off Christmas in the Village Claudia is wearing a beautiful Christmas smocked dress
by Kath Barnett.
I love the red Poinsetta’s on this dress with the brown of the cones with the green leaves and tiny gold detail to give it a Christmas sparkle.I had to buy it as soon as I saw it.
Beautiful smocking. It came with a sun hat which is also lovely but I feel gives it a summer look and so we are leaving it off for now to keep with the Christmas spirit of winter weather here in England.
So December the start of Winter, well I hope everyone is looking forward to the Christmas break later this month and relaxing or partying. If I my darling Dad was still alive he’d have been celebrating his birthday on 22nd, he was an early Christmas gift to his parents, who had lost a few babies before he arrived and survived to become their only child. My grandmother so wanted a girl that she let his hair grow long and it fell in long pale gold ringlets until my granddad decided enough was enough and took him off for a hair cut at the ages of 2.But he made up for it by making them the grand parents to one boy but FOUR girls ! and I have to confess I was the apple of my Granddad’s eye.
So to all those celebrating a Birthday this month, I wish you well and many happy returns for a lovely day of joy and laughter.
