Catching Up


I feel like I have crossed a few things off the to do list this week but still lot's to go before Christmas arrives!

I went onto Harrods where I purchased mum's Christmas present from my dad (I'm sure men only have to daughters to pass their present shopping onto!)


I was able to pick up some American Christmas magazines from there as well as french and US newspapers which I'm planning to experiment using as wrapping paper




And yes I also nipped into CK at Harvey Nicks and purchased a scrubbing brush for that overflowing bottom draw of mine!


I had every intention of wrapping my Christmas presents this afternoon but the day disappeared before I knew it!


This is what my room looked like earlier this evening once I piled all my presents and wrapping materials




I've managed to sort it into piles all ready to wrap tomorrow afternoon (definitely!!)... all my wrapping paper




....ribbons, trims, tags




giftbags




and piles of cards STILL waiting to be wrote




I must also show you these wonderful vintage ornaments I brought here to use on my mum's presents this year




Tomorrow morning mum and I have decided to pop to Fortnum & Mason's for our what has now become traditional December visit. You can read about my last years visit here


I know I still haven't drawn my giveaway... I will have the 8 winners pulled out tomorrow afternoon when I get back so you still have time to enter here

Oh, that is a romantic way to get engaged! That snowflake ornament you got them is very pretty. I'm sure it'll be appreciated for generations to come! The pink grapefruit shop looks like they have a lot of cute things! Wow, that's a lot of wrapping paper and presents. Have fun wrapping.
