Mum's Christmas wreath

I'd like to welcome the new followers, it is lovely to "meet" you :)

As you know my mum has been making me the Mrs Clause Maternity cardigan which is now finished & I'll share photos with you later this week. I decided to make her a Christmas wreath to say thanks for her hard work.  Her tree is all gold colour so I used only gold for the wreath. She really liked it & has already put it up and won't take it down until Christmas :)

It is a bit different from the one I made last year, if you'd like to look at that one then please click HERE and if you wish to watch a quick video of it from my youtube channel, then please click here.
Hope you like these photos and hope that you are starting a nice week wherever you are. 



  1. The wreath you made your mom is gorgeous! She will love it.

  2. Hi Lily, thanks so much for the nice comment you left me on my holiday blog,

    I always love new followers! I will follow your blog too because I also love holiday blogs!

    It looks like you have some beautiful new decorations for Christmas this year, my tree has a gold theme too. You should enter yours in our Christmas tree contest that we have starting on Thanksgiving day.

    Thanks for stopping by,

  3. Great wreath...I enjoy seeing the gilt feathers and the pattern you devised on the wreath...very nice!!

  4. Love those gold birds and poinsettias! Very nicely done Lily! Can't wait to see your cardigan! Have a wonderful week!

  5. You did a beautiful job on your mum's wreath! I can't wait to see you in your new cardigan :-). Hope you have a wonderful week!

  6. Fabulous wreath you made for your lovely mum. So thoughtful of you. I'm sure your cardigan will be so beautiful. Enjoy your week, and now I'm off to see the video!

  7. I mentioned you in my blog post as one of my favorite blogs!

  8. It looks like you have been keeping well and busy. I hope that you are also enjoying the days leading up to Christmas! Isn't it fun!

    You might have seen that next month I am doing a 12 days of Christmas series and I was hoping you could help me with one of the posts I am hoping to to do. I would like to do a post on the different foods that people enjoy at Christmas and I was hoping you could help me by writing a little paragraph about your favourite Christmas food. It doesn't have to be a long paragraph but I would love it if you could tell me why that particular food/dish/treat is special to you. I would also love it if you could include a recipe and maybe even attach a photo if you have one or two...or more!

    Please don't feel too pressured to come up with too much. If you have posted about your favourite Holiday meal on your blog already and would be happy for me to use that post please just send me the link and I will add it.

    I will naturally make sure that I link back to you and your blog in the post!

    I hope you will be able to join in and share your favourite recipes!

    Take care!

    Best wishes always,

  9. Thanks so much for getting back to me Lily. I would love your recipe (and a picture if you have one!) for mulled wine! Thank you so much. Could you email it to me as soon as you get a chance? I know you must be terribly busy so I truly appreciate you doing this!

    Take care and best wishes for a wonderful week,
