Christmas is Coming

Christmas is coming
The geese are getting fat
Please put a penny
in the old man's hat

If you haven't got a penny
A ha'peny will do
If you haven't got a ha'penny
Then god bless you

by Edith Nesbit Bland

Ha'pennies have long gone  but the magic of Christmas remains, I still look forward to the festive season, decorating the tree and house, hanging the stockings over the fire. The smell of mincemeat cooking in the oven, memories of Christmas past and present.

For Handmade by Me blog hop this week a fairy vanilla scented door pillow:

  1. I love Christmas, and your scented door pillow reminds me of the gorgeous scents of that time of year. It looks gorgeous and I know that these are very popular pressies as they make good stocking-fillers.

  2. Love the pillow, I can just imagine the smell too.
