Back again after a week of rest and family time for Christmas. A huge thank you to everyone who has been by here while I was away, and thank you especially for your kind Christmas wishes.
Don't you love this week between Christmas and New Year? A sort of hiatus, where the daily routine is put on hold, and it feels like we've stopped in time.
For us, this weekend marks a pause between guests and entertaining, and it's always a moment when I like to freshen up the Christmas decor and start to prepare for New Year's Eve.
I found these stunning double Amaryllis, totally dreamy and soft coloured. They started as a large bouquet in a giant vase but with the warmth of the house several of the stems snapped, so I changed them to individual jars and scattered Christmas baubles around them.
I hope that your holidays are peaceful and enjoyable,
no matter how many mouths there may be to feed.
