The big count down...

I usually try and avoid anything to do with Christmas until the very last minute, otherwise I am totally Christmassed out before we even get to December - I don't let anyone in the house mention it until after my birthday in November - however...This November it is my 40th birthday, so to take my mind of that I have been busy in the sewing room making Christmas Decorations for my Folksy shop. It has kind of worked - the count down to the big 40 has been forgotten and despite making decorations for Christmas, I still don't feel 'christmassy' RESULT! 





A little selection of my fancy bird and chili inspired decorations! (see, not TOO Christmassy!)


oh - and in a shamelees bit of advertising - I am offering free P&P on all the Christmas decorations in my folksy shop to UK customers!!!!
Just click on my FOlksy link, or any of the photo's in this post!

Right - time too look for egg nogg recipe's!

Its great being 40+ you have a legitimate reason for being nuts - its either (shhhh that time of life creeping up) or the onset of old age and general maddness!! Just go for it girl - getting older disgracefully - just love it! - buy a hat and celebrate!!!

Nice dec's too...

The decorations are great! I am glad that you confirmed that they were Chilli's on the hearts. I thought they were elongated strawberries at first!!! I wish I was 40 again by the way! x

Oooh I'm loving your decorations.

I can't believe yet another of my lovely bloggy friends turns 40 this year. 1970 was obviously THE year to be born ;)

Isn't it lovely how the heart motif just never goes out of fashion? It's a homely shape and you can do so much with it... like yours! Good luck with selling them, sorry I make my own really!

Very cute and Happy Birthday!
I made 40 a few years ago and really it was not that bad.
Hope your day is spent with special family and friends. May the year to come bring you peace and happiness.
