Tree is up; we’ve gone for no tinsel and “less is more” with the ornaments 🙂
But there are some new baubles, as always – the one on the top right was hand painted by my friend Karis of Oh My Glass Crafts
This year we’ve also Christmased up the hallway.
And I’ve even made mince pies! I’m using a Nigella recipe, but substituting 50g of flour with ground almonds, as Felicity Cloake recommends. Also, I keep forgetting to buy the orange (for juice) so I’ve been using vanilla essence mixed with water, which seems to work fine.
It’s been snowy over here, and it looks like we’re on track for a white Christmas.
How’s it looking where you are?
