“And above all,
watch with glittering eyes the whole world around you,
because the greatest secrets are always hidden in the most unlikely places.
Those who don't believe in magic will never find it.”

Glitter and stuff

I hope everyone had an amazing Christmas! We had a great time...watching a four year old zipping around preparing for Santa is very funny and a little sad at the same time, I know it wont be long before she outgrows this.

we tried to create something festive every day.
Some salt dough and cinnamon ornaments,

Felt gingerbread boys,

Glittered paper trees,

cotton beard Santas,

An assortment of oddly decorated cookies,

More cotton ball usage,(remind me next month when I rant about how we've run out of cotton balls)

I also made a sugar plum fairy mobile to hang over Helena's bed, which was so fun to do I am going to make some more to hang out in my fairy garden in a few days.

Have a wonderful evening, take care this weekend and I'll see you next year:)


  1. Oh, how sweet. True, the years fly by, my little girl is a grown woman but to me she will always be my precious little girl. Love the fairy mobile, but then I'm big into fairies.

    Love, Light, Happiness and Peace to ALL !

  11. Oh Marfi, your little Helena is so beautiful. I remember when my kids were that age and every year I think about all the fun we had with them. They are grown now and we still have fun, but they were only babies for a short time and it was at that time that things were so magical. I love all of the festivities you and Helena created and I hope you have a beautiful new year, my lovely friend.

  12. Happy New Year sweet friend...wishing you many blessings!
