The Joy Of Christmas

I have things i wanted to do but never get around of doing it this christmas but there's always next year hopefully :) I'm sure everyone else is also super busy right now that Christmas is 5 days away (time sure flies) but anyways I finally finished making my stocking on Sunday or rather ice skates from Tilda's Christmas Ideas book, i even made one for hubby :)

I even got time to make christmas decorations from a free kit that i got from Cross Stitcher magazine christmas issue, three cute little houses and of course another snowman :)

Yesterday I decided to bake some gingerbread cookies while listening to Elvis Christmas CD that I got from Sunday Mail, I just love the smell of cookies fresh from the oven and can't help having them even before i decorated them with icing sugar, it warms up the house and it's a lovely company for my tea.

I'm going to bake a Yule log perhaps on Friday or Saturday but right now i need to make a shopping list for Christmas Menu as we're going shopping to Sainsburys today.

Wishing everyone a lovely and full of Joy Christmas!

  1. Merry Christmas Susan! Your mitten cookies are so pretty. Hope you get that little bit of snow for Christmas, we've had a dusting a few days so far.

  2. Your stockings are gorgeous and so are your other christmas decorations, so pretty! I bet the biscuits smelt wonderful while you were cooking them :) you are so clever, love your makes, have a wonderful christmas Susan if I don't speak to you before :) and good luck in Sainsburys, it is getting really busy now in supermarkets.

    Bee happy x
    Have a delicious day!

  3. Im the same as you as far as not having the time to make christmassy things ive not had chance to make a single thing this christmas :~

    But wow im loving the stockings/skates you've made theyre fab and the cookies look rather yummy :)

    Wishing you and your husband a merry christmas and all the best for 2012

  4. I love the iceskate stockings!! What a great idea. And the little houses to hang them on! How precious!! You cookies look so yummy and there is no better way for the season than to listen to Elvis. My wonderful husband is a musician and sometimes he sings Elvis' songs. Just makes me go week in the knees...LOL! I received your wonderful package yesterday and I am so thrilled you sent me TWO Christmas Ornaments. I truly love them and placed them on the tree that I FINALLY was able to put up last night. The time has been so busy and going by so fast, but I hope to have things together before Christmas day...
    Merry Christmas to you and hubby,

  5. Merry Christmas Susan. I love making Yule logs! It will be fun to see what else you accomplish!

  6. Merry Christmas! Love the stockings and the cookies look delicious! Happy Tea Day!

  7. Merry Christmas Susan. Good luck at Sainsbury's - we are going at midnight, so to avoid the festive rush. I won't go again then until next week - when Christmas has been and gone!

  8. Hi Susan,
    Thank you for sharing your festive post with Tea Time. I just love your skate socks; very cute! Merry Christmas and A Happy and Healthy New Year to you and those you love.


  9. The ice-skate stockings are lovely, I've been meaning to make a tiny ice-skate for the tree but as yet haven't got round to it. One of my to-do's for next year is to learn how to decorate cookies properly - yours are fab!

    Have a lovely Christmas xx

  10. Dearest Susan,

    Merry, Merry Christmas dear lady.., and a happy New Year to you as well!

    I love your delightfully festive, adorable and oh-so-festive ice-skate socks.., Too cute! ~ How heartwarmingly wonderful to be able to shop at Sainsbury's. I've always wondered what those stores would be like, especially at Christmas time. 'Chock a block', full of amazing foodie treats no doubt! We have our own large stores; plenty in fact, yet somehow I imagine they are not at all the same.

    Thanks ever so much for also inspiring us richly and sharing with us all of your marvelous tea posts for our Tuesday tea parties.

    We always adore having you join us in the fun!..,

    Thanks for so faithfully brightening our corner of blogland, as you have joined us for, 'T and TTT', and also for, 'Tuesday Tea For Two', on many a lovely occasion.

    May God richly bless you and yours during this coming Christmas and also in the New Year in 2012 dear lady.

    Hugs from Wanda Lee, (and Pam)

  11. Oh Susan your stockings are so sweet. I love them and the mitten cookies look cute! Very Merry Christmas to you sweet lady and good things to you and yours in 2012

  12. Those stockings have turned out great..I just adore them! What a great idea of having them as ice skates..I would have never thought of that. I hope Santa will fill them up with little goodies :)

    Your little cottage decorations are adorable..I could see a little cute elf living quite happily in each of those.

    What yummy and cute gingerbread cookies..how did you get the icing so smooth on the cookies?

    Wishing you a very Merry Christmas!!

  13. Oh my, your stockings are so adorable! You did a beautiful job on them, and I am sure Santa will be delighted to fill those lovelies up!
    Your little houses too, and snow man are wonderful! How sweet they look lines up like that!
    Love the tea mug too : )
    Hugs and Happy Holidays,

  14. Charming stockings, yummy looking cookies! Merry Christmas!

  15. I'm so behind too. There were so many things I wanted to do in time for Christmas but alas time has got the better of me.
    I'm just hoping to enjoy Christmas and maybe next year have a little more time on my hands for all the things I wanted to do this year.
    Your decorations look lovely xxx

  16. Oh my, I've been sooo busy from work and sooo tired when I get home that I haven't been keeping up with my friends' blogs. I love all your decor, Susan...the ice skate stockings are soo cute, and the cross stitch, and oooo..the cookies look so yummilicious!

    I'm hoping to get in some baking Saturday as I'm off...just a few special favorites.

    Enjoy Christmas with your family, and be merry in heart and soul.

    Love, Marianne xox
