Jennelise Rose 2013

"For last year's word belong to last year's language
And next year's words await another voice."
                           ~T. S. Eliot

    Christmas was wonderful and magical as Christmas always is and I am always sad to see it pass so quickly. A New Year is about to begin! I feel that little thrill in my heart at the possibilities that might be hiding in 2014 - But first let's look back at this year and see what we did! Happy New Year to you and your families! Thankyou so much for the incredible support that I have felt and received from you this year. My blog and etsy shop have come so far and it is all thanks to you! I hope that 2014 will be just as exciting and that it will be filled with creativity and new adventures!

Pretty Presents

"Christmas doesn't come from a store,
maybe Christmas perhaps means a little bit more…"
            ~Dr. Seuss

    Tomorrow is Christmas Eve! It has crept up on me (Even though I have been preparing since November :). I hope everyone has a marvellous Christmas! I took a few photographs of my wrapping for this year. My Mum and I found some really beautiful pink and gold paper and had so much fun wrapping our gifts with it! Picking ribbons and baubles that matched was a treat too and I personally think that this year our presents are the prettiest ever! Take care and have a wonderful Christmas!

Stockings, Gillyflowers, and Glitter

"Christmas is a season for
kindling the fire for hospitality
in the hall, the genial flame of
charity in the heart."
                  ~Washington Irving

   The past week has been so hectic! Apart from Christmas chaos my little sister is having her first baby - she is due January 5th but we are all very aware that she could be early! So much preparation taking place right now. Christmas is about family though and I am enjoying all of the hubbub. 
I have had these pictures ready for a little while and just haven't found the time to edit and post them but at last here they are! I seem to be amassing a little collection of Christmas stockings. I have the two that I have photographed the last few years - the Victorian pink and the beaded ivory one - but this year I came across a little stocking at Free People that I loved. I bought it, unstitched a few little bits, and then added a little shimmery Gillyflower. I love it! I think it is so sweet. I also bought a burlap and lace stocking to actually use for Christmas and attached a velvet rose that I purchased from one of my favourite shops here in town. Incidentally this shop purchased a large order of Gillyflowers from me and they now sit throughout their beautiful Christmas displays! I also made some flowers for my Mum which I have photographed for you to see along with some of my favourite Christmas treasures. I hope everyone is having a wonderful Christmas! Only a few more days to go! 

I have also added a few items to the Etsy Shop! Pop over and have a look!
