Misty Frosty

It's been all of a Sherlock Holmsey TV show foggy out there yesterday. The freezing fog left a layer of frost on everything. I didn't have much time to take many pictures but I got a few. The spiders' webs were beautiful.

This week has been busy busy. The girls are doing their school Christmas shows this week. It was Squidge's show today. She was a fairy ballerina dancing to the Dance of the Sugar Plum fairy from the Nutcracker suite. She danced beautifully. Though like every mother watching these sort of productions I couldn't get enough photos for other children getting in the way! Lol. :) It was good that I could sit at the front though, I zoomed through my work and was allowed to get out earlier so that I could get to the hall to get a great seat. I haven't got any pictures I can show, but she looked very pretty in a fairy outfit that someone bought her last year for Christmas.

Chatterbox's performance is on Thursday. She is supposed to be a Victorian Londoner. Here is the outfit I made for her from an old nightdress, lace from an underskirt, and old skirt of my Nan's and an old top of mine. I can't wait to see her show.

I can't wait for Christmas! I love this time of year.



  1. I love the photos of the hydrangea.

    I bet your daughters are wonderful in their programs.

  2. lovely pics! love how bootsy has to get in there and add hair to the costume. cracks me up.

  3. Children and their programs are priceless. Loved the pictures of the webs-there is beauty even there.

  4. It looks as though the spider got its crochet hook out to make that web!

  5. Beautiful photos of the frost!

    How fun your daughter's were in Christmas programs. I'm sure they were both wonderful! :)

    Have a lovely weekend!

  6. Sarah, The work I did in my bedroom really made a difference. I did it just in time because in a couple of days we will have a foot of snow and be below 0 F degrees. I can't help but think the good Lord put the idea to do it at this time in my head. God Bless

  7. Thanks ladies! xx

    Cabcree - Boots has to get in on everything to cover life with her hair.

    Joyce - I'm so glad that you've found a way to be warmer at night, that's so important in these cold months. Sounds like it's going to be very cold for you.
