Making Me Smile This Week

This little fella dropped through the letter box last week, courtesy of my sister in Australia.  It was an extra little gift for Little Bird and he's super sweet. 

He's taken up his spot on the tree. 

Yesterday, a friend sent me some of lovely handmade items through the post, some of which have also been added to the tree.  Just as well I didn't put lots of things on it this year.  Here's a few pictures of what she sent me.


This super cute little string of owl bunting came in this lovely burlap bag.  I can see these coming out every year from now on.


Also making me smile is my favourite Christmas mug. 

It comes out every December and I enjoy using it to drink my tea from in the lead up to Christmas.  It just helps make me feel a bit special.  Sad, but true.

Finally, I don't know what it is about these guys, but they always manage to make me smile and are at their absolute best when they are not taking themselves too seriously.  Loving their current single and glad to see that they are still having chart success.  It somehow makes the world seem a better place.


  1. I hope you have many more smiles before the year is out.
    Merry Christmas.

    1. Thanks Mum, you too. Have a great Christmas and all the best for 2015.
