Bee happy ..... see stars

I found myself with a little spare time which doesn't happen all that much these days so I made some star garlands for Christmas.
They are that pretty they may have to stay up longer than just for Christmas ;)
I used my vintage sheet music stash and cut out a large and small star and then a medium star in pink paper.

I put all 3 stars on top of each other then used the sewing machine to stitch all the way through them all, I kept adding the stars until the garlands were long enough.

At the end of the garland I left enough thread for hanging with.

What have you been making for Christmas?

Bee happy ..... have a pink Christmas

I wanted to share with you my pink Christmas decorations.
I haven't had pink out for Christmas for a couple of years so decided this year it was time again.
I had lots of pink baubles and decorations but purchased a couple more for this year to update the look ;)

I have mixed in my lovely silver mercury decorations with the pretty pink ones.

A few pink ribbons and bows have been added too.
I have used my old vintage suitcase for a decoration this year for the first time and think it may become a regular.

Bee happy .... start the Advent countdown

It's that time of year again for the Advent calender to begin.

This year I decided to go with pink and white sweet bags for hiding the Advent goodies inside.

I secured the top with some washi tape and put numbered stickers on each one.

They are all kept safe in a metal storage basket which I have decorated.

Last year I used small gift bags which were secured to the stair banister but wanted a change this year.

What do you have for your Advent calender?
