  5. Goodness me, that Johnson is a stunner Zara. I am always amazed when I see a new design, they each get lovelier than the last.
    I would be interested in hearing your thoughts on Hugh's book, it's one I've been thinking about getting.
    Wishing you a joyous xmas.

  6. Your veggie patch is looking great.
    Merry Christmas Zara. I hope you have a festive time.
    PS Love your new header

  7. The things you show us are always so lovely Zara, just like you. That Johnson plate is a beauty - another design I haven't seen before. We will be eating Christmas lunch off ours, none of them as nice as that one.
    I made that gingerbread house, pop over and have a look. Not my best work I'm afraid, quite embarrassing really. Ha-ha! Have a lovely Christmas, take care x

  8. I don't think I have seen that pattern plate before. Love it!

  9. Lovely pics Zara, those advent goodies are wonderful- I really love that embroidery, so simple but so lovely. Have a wonderful Christmas. mel x

    Everytime I go to comment on your blog I always want to include the word 'lovely' :)

    Have a wonderful Christmas!

    Merry Christmas to you and your family, Zara!
