Christmas at Kerjacob.

Last night I started to take some photographs
of some of my ' bits 'around Kerjacob.

I made the music paper bunting for last 
Christmas and I LOVE it so much 
that its been there all year.

This little Christmas angel doll was given to me by a friend
I've known for over forty years.

The little beaded bird reminds me of some of the decorations
 we had when I was little - what happened to them -
  I loved them.

Today would have been my darling Mum's 100 birthday but sadly I lost her thirteen years ago.
The day will never be forgotten by me.
 I remember her telling me that her parents had told her
that she's fallen off Santa's sleigh and then found !
I do hope she really didn't believe that for too many years.

More photographs to come - I've so enjoyed playing at my home this Christmas.

A Star for for you .

Mercury star hanging in one of the windows.

All is nearly done here and the house with its pretty twinkly lights just delights me.
I will take some photographs over the next few days when things go quietly.

Mr P and I will share the day tomorrow with our three cats, Tortue, Pie and Samuel.
We'll be warm and cosy in front of the wood stove.

I send Christmas wishes of love, happiness and most importantly
 ( from my experiences ) good health.

Thank you for following my life here at Kerjacob and thank you for your comments
which I SO LOVE .

Happy Christmas.

Hanging on in the garden.

A few days ago when it wasn't raining  ( it has recently, everyday !!)
I went a walk round the garden.
Since being in hospital I'm not really able to do very much yet,
not even planting bulbs in my pots !

I was armed with my camera and was delighted to find that there was still
colour hanging on - a delight.

Beautiful lacy heads of the wild clematis

Some of the penstemon are still flowering bravely despite the freezing weather of a few weeks ago
and since then the strong winds and daily heavy rain.

When everywhere can look so grey these jewels are there to brighten the day.

Even the dead flower heads on the dahlias have their beauty. I just hope that they
will survive the cold and the damp, I know I should have lifted them but this winter
my body isn't up to digging.

What beauty there is if only we look.

Nature's amazing colours !

Trunk of young birch tree.

Despite the weather being bitterly cold Mr P and I went out with our cameras on Monday afternoon.
As I walked along the side of the lake near where we live, I didn't think I would find anything in the grey cold that would inspire me.

THEN - there I saw this gift of nature - the colours are as they were, not altered at all.
Nature in all its greyness gave me this to take the cold away.

Amazing !!!

Angels at Christmas.

My kitchen table never stays clear for long.
I've been working on Christmas cards - again !
This is the second of my designs for this year.
I'll take some photographs of the first designs and post them before the end of the week.

Pie's inspiration !!!

Yesterday I was up early with the car packed with lots of things I've been making since being home from hospital.

It was the Christmas fair at a little village near to Kerjacob 
called "St Gelven "

I didn't get time to take many photographs but this one came out so well I thought I'd let you see what Pie had inspired me to make !

Pie gets into the act !

I'm sure if she could she would have wanted to have come with me and sit next to the cushion or more likely sit on it !!

I shall post some more photographs over the next few days but for now I'm having a rest.
My body is telling me to take it easy today.
