I Love Summer

It is my Favourite time of the year ... You have kids in shorts/skirts, swimming, summer fruit!!! - peaches, nectarines, strawberries, melons, cherries, plums, apricots ohhh my mouth waters at the thought! Christmas, beaches, BBQs, I just love everything about Summer.
Today finally feels like Christmas, we got our tree today and the kids had fun decorating it. I am sitting here in the dark with the Christmas lights on (and a few Christmas candles) and I can smell the tree and the candles and ahhhh smells like Christmas!

This year I got involved in a Christmas Ornament Swap. You make 10 ornaments and post them off and get 10 different ones in return. I made my ornaments from Cd's an idea I got from my Friend Jennie I was completely blown away by the AMAZING ornaments I have so far received in the letterbox. There are some amazingly talented ladies out there!
These are mine ...

and these are the amazing ones I have received in the post so far ...

Something else that I love about Summer is the garden! I have the most awesome Veggie Garden at the moment and OMGoodness the flowers I have around are simple stunning!

Nothing beats home grown veggies!!!

So I am also part way through making a few different Christmas Projects so watch this space! And I have a couple tutorials coming .. and I can't wait to show you my Homemade Christmas Presents!!
