I can still enjoy selecting, writing sending and receiving Christmas cards. I love Christmas cards! I can bring out the Christmas box from the eaves cupboard and select my favourite ornaments.

Tip two - put some out in the same place around the same time every day..
Over at Cornflower Books Karen has found a great little series of short films about art in a most beautiful house which you might enjoy....See here.
Tomorrow - a confession. It's not all sweetness and light here!
