  6. hiya- what a gorgeous giveaway- I just love the fact that thegingerbread man has a toy ofhis own!
    On Christmas Eve when the horses are all snug in their stables, cosied-up in winter rugs, and the soft rustling of straw and munching of hay as the weather howls outside...I love that last look around before the lights are switched off and barn door shut...its like all the Christmas Eves of many years past rolled into one...

    My favourite thing would have to be the nostalgia. Unpacking the same decorations year on year, building our own little family traditions and eating those favourite foods I know I wont touch for another year.

  20. Thanks for prompting me to follow, I've been following you through Bloglovin for ages and didn't realise I hadn't followed you through google as well! Can I enter too please? I have a bit of a gingerbread man obsession!
    My favourite thing about Christmas is all the carol services with the lights dimmed down or by candlelight if possible, may favourite being our midnight service. Its so peaceful and atmospheric especially when the clock ticks over to Christmas Day and everyone wishes everyone else a Happy Christmas for the first time xx

    One of my favourite things about Christmas is unpacking the box of decorations and re-acquainting myself with special treasures, then finding the perfect place to put them around the house.

  23. My favourite thing about Christmas is being with my family drinking mulled wine at the Christmas Markets.

    I'm no good at this following thing (i just tend to remember the URL) however I think I am now following you! correct me if I am wrong.

    If I dont win is there somewhere I can buy these cute little rosy cheeked toy things from? I have always tried looking through your blog to see if you sell them but it seems you dont!

    Thank you
