Home flowers Solstice


I love it when we reach this day of the year, the Winter Solstice, it’s so hopeful. I know that tomorrow there is going to be a little more daylight than there was today. I know that we probably won’t notice it just yet but the fact that it will happen is just enough to make me happy. Changes are already happening, little flowers are coming out, bulbs are pushing through and I even saw some buds on a tree today, so all wonderfully hopeful!!!


As this is my last post before Christmas I thought we would do a little catching up with what I’ve been up to. I’m still bunny making, this little lady is Misty, it was lovely making the Christmas bunnies but it was nice to move on to less festive ones again.


I’ve been a very lucky girl again and have won another lovely giveaway, this time from Sally. Thanks to Sally for a very generous parcel of goodies!!!

I have also received some lovely gifts and cards from bloggy friends, I just love the friendship that exists in blogland! Thanks to Simone, Mia, Jane and Gill!!!


I’ve also given myself a little gift, I’m calling it my salary from Green Rabbit Designs for the year!!! I’m beyond excited about this little baby!

Lastly just a collection of our tree decorations, some of them almost as old as me and some just new this year, exactly how a collection of Christmas decorations should be, I think.


So here we are almost at Christmas Day, I think this has been the quickest year ever and certainly December has flown by.
I want to thank all of you lovely people for visiting me here and for leaving all your lovely comments, post after post. I hope you have a wonderful Christmas with those you love.

Wishing you and yours a very happy Christmas and all the peace of the season!
I’ll see you all on the other side!

Dear Vivienne,

Lovely, lovely joy-filled post! I couldn’t agree with you more of the wonderful friendship we’ve created with blogging, gives me such joy almost daily! And all those beautiful tree decorations… Thank you for sharing!

I wish you happy and peaceful Christmas and all the best for the New Year – it’s the pre-spring am I right 🙂 ?

I quite like winter, I’m not ready for the budding season yet, but the return of the light, that’s always welcome.

Hope you and yours have a wonderful Christmas Vivienne x

Belated Solstice greetings V and isn’t it wonderful to think of those few extra minutes of light sneaking up on us again! It was good to see your other gifts, I do like the Paris heart and I love the hare festive card, I also love to see other peoples decorations they have collected, it’s very much a potted history of Christmas’s past and always nice to buy the odd one or two new ones.
Hey, fabulous to treat yourself to the iPad and see something for all that hard work bunny making. You’ll find some brilliant apps to load up onto it once you get going.
See you on the other side and have a brilliant Christmas and new year. xx

What a dear little bunny Misty is in her little winter outfit.
I know you will be eagerly watching for those first signs of new life in your garden.
I used to love to see the first snowdrops and crocus appear.
Hope you are having fun on the new iPad!
