Hooded plaid shrug, made from vintage Pendleton wool, lined in sky blue silk satin.
Boxing Day dates back to past centuries when it was the custom for the wealthy to give gifts to employees or to people in a lower social class, most especially to household servants and other service personnel. [wikipedia]
Now let's all have a laugh about "wealthy," "lower social class," and "household servants." Ah, there'll always be an England.

As I keep looking out my kitchen window at my orange tree that amazingly this year has oranges on it, the only option seemed to be to make marmalade, now having seen this photo I can think of a better option for all my oranges!
Christmas cooking has gone on the back burner as I stumble upon some more wonderful blogs and so many talented people, I absolutely love these images, so girly and festive from the City Sage so in case you have not had enough christmas glitz yet I thought I would share these with you!

How about a clutch of rick-rack roses? Thanks to Vintage Vogue for demystifying this lovely embellishment. Watch this space for my experiment in rick-rack revival...

I have completely fallen in love with this fabulous blog, Oncewed, it is full of delightful details for weddings and table settings. Such a creative blog and now one of my favorites. This winter table setting with all the lovely details such as the ribbons and tags, the jam jars filled with poppies and white flowers, the fabulous owl and of course the marshmallows, my sister's favourites! I think the Marshmallow snowman will have to be on display in my house by the time my sister arrives, although I only managed to get a bag today with pink and white ones?!

You've got to pick one of these up, if for no other reason than to see how cute Alison and Eric are and how gorgeous Sara's photos are...and let's not forget the details! Thanks for sharing in my excitement. Many more great things are to come!

Loads of lovely ladies in white. It reminds me of a nineteenth century family portrait. Only smile-ier.
I really like this one, for some reason. The ruffle bolero was a last minute inspiration, but I think it made the ensemble, don't you? Congratulations, Chris--all the best to you and your new family. Thanks to Heather Hawksford for generously sharing these images.
