Now I'm sorry to remind you, but it's only 50 days til Christmas! Getting into the festive swing, I've been busy listing some more Christmas ornaments in my etsy shop. The ones shown here are solid wooden hearts that I've painted with with my own fair hand, then I've added a coat of varnish for protection and a little red ribbon for hanging. I do always seem to return to traditional red and white for Christmas, no other colour scheme ever seems quite as Christmas-sy to me! Those colours look great against the forest green foliage of my Christmas tree too. I'm also starting to hunt round etsy for some possible gifts - though there are so many lovely things to choose from, I'll need to force myself to make some decisions before Christmas Eve!
