Twas The Night Before Christmas

Firstly I'd just like to apologise for not being around so much in the last week. Christmas preparations have taken over as they have a tendency to do.

Secondly I'd like to wish all my followers and anyone who stops by a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year. I hope Santa is kind to you all and brings all the things you wish for. I've really appreciated all your comments over the last year and the support and lovely inspiration you have provided and look forward to a New Year of crafty goodness.

I have no crafting to share with you today but thought these photos taken during the last week where nice and festive. Our river is frozen solid and today is covered with a fresh sprinkling of snow. It looks beautiful and I can't remember seeing it like this in my 40 years so it doesn't happen often. Mind we don't get daytime highs of -9oc very often either!!

The swans and ducks are all congregated in the little bit of water there is under the bridge.

Lastly I took these frost patterns on the car window last Sunday when we went out. The cold can be very difficult but it certainly provides lots of photo opportunities.

Stay warm and safe and enjoy all that you do over the festive period and I will see you in a few days.

Dearest Lisa, as usual your photos are stunning - so cold and frosty - I would love to scrap that ice flakes one!! There is nothing like that here in London that I have found to photograph!! :(
The very best of Christmases to you and yours and a Happy New Year too, hugs xxxx

As always Lisa, your photos are gorgeous. For us its been pretty chilly as well - maybe the SW might a be a bit warmer, but not much!

Wishing you and your family so much fun and happiness over the Christmas period and New Year and thank you for all the lovely comments on my blog over this past year, they are all so appreciated. Jill x

Wonderful photos, Lisa! You're right, the snow and ice do make for some great pictures, but I'll still be glad to see the back of it all.

Hope you and your family have a lovely Christmas and all the best for the New Year,

Hugs,Lynne xx

Beautiful photos! Hope you had a great Christmas. My best gift was that my little grandee came out of intensive on Christmas Eve and is making a good recovery now.
BTW...Have posted details for making the fabric buckets on my blog incase you are interested as I had quite a few requests.
Lots of love Jo x

Hi Lisa, your pics are brill. Nature is truly amazing isn't it? Hopefully it's a bit warmer over your way now - although it's nowhere near as pretty now the snow has gone!

I'd like to wish you all the best for the new year and thank you for all your lovely comments since I started blogging back in August :-)
