An alternative Christmas swap

Hi all

Since "Christmas swaps" are so popular on blog land I came up with an alternative swap style for this Christmas. One that doesn't require a trip to the local post office. All you need is a camera & access to the internet ;) The idea is that whoever wants to participate will take photos of their town/city/mini break elsewhere. The photos can be of Christmas lights, shop windows, shop shelves, street decorations & so on.  Then you e-mail those photos to me & I swap them around between us. Then we will publish them on our blogs with a tiny ad of that person's blog. So one of you will get a photo from "Lily -".

If you want to join in please e-mail me on Please put "swap" in the subject box & what type of photos you may end up with, plus your blog. Meanwhile here are a few pictures of a few new Christmas decorations I bought recently.

Happy holidays


Love the word "Noel"

Scottish soap, wish I could also upload the scent, heaven :)

I named him "Comet" cause he is so cute.

Mr & Mrs Gingers!


  1. Lily! I will be emailing you for the swap!

    I got the sweetest Christmas card from you. I love it! It is going to get a frame!

  2. I love the Mulled Wine Soap!!!!!! The tin is awesome and I can only imagine the smell, yummy!!! Sweet decorations, cute!
