December has been a pretty full month, it has to be said. What did you get up to?

  1. Ooo,all fun things and delicious food!I love your snowy forest cake :-) Your dress has got me thinking that I'm so behind finishing dresses I'm working on. One has been cut out and unmade for a month and the other needs a finish. Ugh.Yours looks so pretty.Love the sleeves

  3. Love that mirror selfie.
    Look at the size of those slices of cake, I'm surprised there was room for the tea element (always room for cocktails though).
    I'm so impressed with your dress making, I can manage a simple skirt pattern but that's about it.
    December was mostly about work for me until Xmas eve and then it was all about family until the 30th and then it was back to work. It was a lovely Christmas though :)

  6. your handmade dress is beautiful! We made a Christmas cake too but I don't even like the thing so I guess Husband is going to work his way through it at some point. They keep for ages though, don't they? x

  9. OMG I'm so jealous you have that BD dress, I desperately wanted it (think there's a couple of variations of the same print) but the sizing didn't go very large (plus it was super expensive). I am so hungry right now and that burger and chips look delicious!! Love the mirror selfie too.
