I hope you enjoy a little look at Christmas in the Happy Crow house.

Boris and Midge send christmas woofs and meaows to all your pets!

Lots of love. Jane XXXXX

This takes the basket!

Last night me Mr Crow and a few friends went to Lostwithiel to the Christmas Dickens evening where all the shops stay open for the evening and the shopkeepers dress up in Victorian clothes and ply you with mulled wine, cake and mince pies. Have no photos I am afraid but I bought this little basket from one of the antique market stands, I think its a Cath Kidston one and it only cost £5 and is just right for little Midge who had a lovely snooze in it this afternoon after a gorgeous long walk round St Anthony's head this morning. She is modeling a little jumpie that she wears around the house as she feels the cold and she is spoilt!

I am gradually introducing Christmas into the house now, I dont like to go too mad till about a week before but thought its time to start swapping cushions and things for more festive colours. Boris likes this hand stitched Hungarian cushion, I just have to watch he doesnt claw it!

I bought some old American school books on etsy last week, only took about three days to get here from the U.S. I am cutting them up for collage's as they are a bit tatty and have used some of the winter pages to make Christmas hangings to cheer up door knobs and things. Only wish we would have some snow this Christmas.

I am off this weekend to the Giant Flea at Shepton Mallet, really looking forward to it, hope to find some pressies and some vintage christmas stuff to dec the halls with. Have a good weekend everyone.
