 Special gifts...

We have been busy wrapping, creating, baking, and singing and so much more ...life has been busy. 
I have only had such limited time to visit all my favourite blogs and popping by the lovely Amanda from Homely One just made my evening. Amanda passed on the "You Are Gifted" award to me, and her kind words really made me smile. Amanda's blog is full of warm homely inspiration and she has the sweetest little girl called Grace...pop by and say hello...you will love Amanda's warmth and creativity.

What i love about these awards is being able to make sweet blogger friends smile...without a doubt my favourite blog to read at the moment is sunshine and ceremony. The gorgeous Denise (and she really is) i am lucky enough to know this very talented girl personally and call her my dear friend. 
Denise writes about her 2 little sunshine's, showcases stunning images, beautiful objects has a flair for finding little treasures and has a real love for life and family. 
So Denise my inspiring, thoughtful, generous friend...you have been gifted (although i feel i have been gifted... to have you as a true friend) x

There are so many amazing and talented bloggers out there...and they all deserve this sweet award. Thank you Amanda for thinking of me!

Speaking of gifts...we really have enjoyed wrapping and crafting and a little bit of handmade gifting this year. I found vintage fabric that i turned into little swing tags and used as gift wrap. Also had fun making little bibs and body suits into fun Christmas gifts for little one's to wear...during the festive season.

Only 4 more sleeps....we have been counting down.
I hope to be back before the magic of Christmas Eve x
