7 Things I Like...

About Christmas!

The lovely Dzintra *tagged* me earlier in the week. She shared seven favourite things. I thought I would run with a Christmas theme.

Before I forget... here are the rules:

Post a link to the blog that challenged you and add these rules to your post: Share 7 things about yourself. Challenge 7 other blogs at the end of your post through naming their blog and post a link to it. Let them know they've been challenged by leaving a comment in their blog.

Fruit Mince Pies

Each year I try different sorts from cafes and bakers but homemade are the best. I prefer a full pastry top on mine.

The Christmas Tree

It doesn't really feel like Christmas until the tree is up and decorated. It's always a shame we we have to take it down again.

Handmade Crafts

I just love giving and receiving handmade things.

Vintage Christmas Cards

I'm a sucker for a good Christmas card and especially like the vintage postcards.

Christmas Bush

Christmas in Australia means summer and heat and this wonderfully vibrant plant.

Christmas Carols

Especially the ones about snow and cold weather!

Christmas Pudding

Even when it's in the high 30s, low 40s I still like Christmas Pudding. I enjoy making it and everyone has to stir the mixture for good luck.

Well, that's some of my Christmas favourites.

Thanks Dzintra, that was fun!



  1. Thanks for playing Ann...this was great. The pies look a treat...I have the same Annie Downs stitchery too!!! Thank you...Dzintra

  2. PS. What I need to know, when you mention you link it up??? I just cannot get it!!!

  3. I found you when searching for Christmas vintage postcards:) The one on your blog is a beauty!

  4. You're definitely right about the tree, and growing up it was coming home from school to the smell of Mum baking Christmas cake - even though I didn't like eating it at the time (I do now!!).

    You're also right about handmade gifts - they're always the best!



Thank you for stopping by.
