WOYWW 133, Christmas sorted !!!! Well almost x

 This is a little dickens mice scene that I knitted over a year ago for my Grandson, so it has pride of place beside the tree, this pattern is from Alan Dart, hope you enjoy

 Stamping my brown paper for Christmas presents, this year I was rushed for time  working full-time gets in the way of crafting as I am sure you will all agree x  Below is a Nativity scene which I knitted many years ago, also used a Alan Dart pattern

 Lots of tags for presents on my workdesk, below wrapping up the goodies, well some of them still a few to go, these tags were made by using my gingerbread man die by Tim Holtz

 The Christmas tree very laden with allsorts, a lot of memories on this tree goodies made by my daughters when they were young
 The little tag on the tree say's  "Sit long- Talk much- Laugh often x x 
 Some holly from my Garden with some candycane's etc  to cheer up the kitchen
 Stocking's waiting to be filled, my daughters are grown women now, but still very young at heart and love their stockings at Christmas, These are the stocking they had as children so they around 25 years old, they have been mended a couple ot times since then x x
Of course this is the reason for it all, A very Merry Christmas to you all and a happy new year xxxx, Lots of Hugs May x x x x  x x x x x x x x

I love the knitted mice and Nativity - you are clever! I couldn't get over the cute little lanterns the mice are holding. You must have used miniscule needles!
Hope you have a wonderful Christmas and New Year,

Oooh lovely and festive there! I too have used brown paper to wrap all my present but didnt get around to stamping on it this year but it still looks lovely with the extra trimmings and homemade tags too. Love your daughters stockings and all your knitted displays. Thanks for visiting me and have a fabulous Christmas.

Mrs A. said...

Love those knitted mice. Must have taken hours of knitting to do them. Looks fab how you have displayed them too. Great idea to do your own wrapping paper.With the tags it looks very festive. Thanks for stopping by. I am so slow to visit only having the hand at the moment to type. Have a lovely Christmas and see you on WOYWW in the New Year. Hugs Mrs A.

The tags are so useful. You can recognize every thing easily.

Where i can find the plastic key tags inside which i can put a picture?
