Special things at Kerjacob Christmas.

The rain has stopped here for the moment.
The sun is shining and I've been planting
more bulbs to hide away 'till Spring.

As some of you know I make a special card for Mr P every

Its never easy as I have to hide all the parts
whilst I'm making.

So here are some photographs of this years card.

I was very pleased that he liked it .

Th help some of the gloomy days I always pot up
some hyacinths.

I prefer the white ones.
When they're finished out they go into the garden
to flower for me next spring.

My beautiful old mannequin has been dresses for Christmas but I'm still looking for
something suitable for her lower half.
Long white bloomers are really what I want and somewhere I have the ones
that belonged to my great grandmother.

The little tiny armoir was one that I bought this year- it needs repairing but I just love it.
Standing next to it is an angel sculpture by John Maltby - love his work.

The tea lights came into use when we lost all power for 24
hours !

Below is my darling velveteen rabbit which Mr P bought me in Paris this year for
our wedding anniversary. It is very old and very gorgeous.

If you've never read the story of  "The Velveteen Rabbit " now is the time to do so.

For sometime I collected silver sugar spoons and they all got a polish for Christmas.

These tiny brown shoes belonged to my father.
He was born in 1908 so they are very old now and to me very precious.


  1. Oh I love your Velveteen Rabbit he is so gentle and lovely.
    Your card is really beautiful Diane what lovely lovely things to see xxx
    Hugs Lynn xxx

  2. What a beautiful post.
    Happy New Year.

  3. A lovely post Diane - sharing little treasure corners of your home. I particularly love your collection of silver teaspoons. Do you do anything special with them?? How precious to have such an old pair of shoes of your father's. I am wondering if you got around to dressing the bottom half of the mannequin? Have a super year Diane x
