Last day of Christmas Decorations and other stuff

I've left these tree ornies for the last day, they are very special to me as they were made by Corinne when she was 3yrs old  which only seems like yesterday to me, we used to sit together making all sorts of crafty things on our "Nanny days" as she used to call them .....well she 20yrs old now attending University  and all grown up but she is interested in craft and sewing in general so that really pleases me. 
 


 
Love the paper chains she made,  who knows how long they will hold together, they are a bit faded now.



 
This is a favourite of mine that I  made years ago.....love the legs on these guys..... why don't we put the date on them at the time ?.... hmmmmm I have started doing that now as its surprising how old some of the decorations are.

 
This Santa is another favourite........ they are all favourites really.

 
Now to show you some of the lovely birthday gifts I received from friends and family, I was so lucky to get so many special gifts.
 
Wow this tree was made by my Mel (DIL) and yes they have all been eaten, disgusting I know.....
 
 
Sandi made this cute little hanging.

 
 
Norreen gave me these lovely cups and they will now be used by us on our dolly making saturdays.

 
Gifts from family and Tuesday girls.



 
Gavan gave me this cup and saucer for the table on the patio.


I did have a lovely day on Sunday and I enjoyed being spoilt but I think from now on that I will start counting backwards so I will feel better.

Looking through my pictures today I realised that I hadn't shown a finished photo of this quilt.....

I have enjoyed blog hopping checking out everyones decorations in the "One Week of Christmas" organised by Cheryll so pop over and have a look at the other blogs, so many great ideas and beautiful projects ..... I have started my "To Do List" for next year...... I didn't really say that did I ?
