I hope things get better this week. It's no fun to be sick anytime, much less Christmas. I am in awe of your Tim Tags and how you kept up with them. BTW, I was very impressed with your green grass. No green grass in my world. Just brown and dead. Happy WOYWW from # 5.

Hey dear, just read your comment. I STILL can't access my e-mail account, so will have to find another way to send my address. I might have to visit my neighbor and use her e-mail address.

lovely christmas decorations!

Tracey Fletcher KIng said...

The tags look wonderful and that Christmas tree looks amazing...puts our rather sad effort to shame... have a great creative week...xx


Hi, did you manage to sort things out? I do hope so. I can't get quite into it all this year, not sure if it so much making and not wondering round the shops, the lack of Birmingham Market or the change of routine, the colds that won't go away or........... Maybe everything! Looking forward to winding down and waffle brunch that should help!

Neet said...

Oh Jude, the doggie photos are super. Love them and what gorgeous dogs. Thank you so much for sharing. Just wish blogger would let us see them in a larger size like it used to when you click on them.
Absolutely gorgeous window, how fabulous it looks, bet the girls love it, and the tree.
Great tag display too.
Take care, hugs, Neet xx

I love your little village on the windowsill - soooo cute!! But I have serious decoration envy..what is that turquoise glitter ball hanging up in the window and where did you get it?? I LOVE it :)

PS The dogs were fantastic, I can see why they help raise loads of money!

Ann B said...

24 tags completed, well done you, and the display is looking great. All that and still time to get your tree and put up your decorations - fantastic. I have one of those little houses, mine is a candlemaker's shop, don't they look cute when lit up?

Fabulous tags Jude, well done. I would go buy a tree now just to have one of those dogs deliver it to my car. How exciting. Happy Xmas, see you in 2012.

Morti said...

Well I never! I've seen Bernese Mountain Dogs pulling carts, but never Newfies! I'm well familiar with the size of them though, because I have a Pyrenean and they grow to the same size.

The tags look fab, and your tree looks great. I normally don't like real trees because they're not symmetrical enough for my liking, but yours is! Nice one.

Thanks for stopping by - Morti@21

Elizabeth said...

Well Jude, it looks as though we have both been going through the wars, for various and different reasons, recently but as life seems to come in peaks and troughs I think we're about due a peak now. Love the photos on your blog today - Misty is just too cute and what a way to buy your Christmas tree. Here's to a better week for you. Elizabeth x #66

Your tags are fantastic, so detailed.
We can't have real trees for Christmas here, they would be dead in a few days, we have real plastic ones!
Hope you week is better and have a great Christmas, I will be playing next week so no post.

There seems to be alot of the lurgy around at the moment and as an asthma sufferer I try to keep away from anybody who is infected like the plague.
Lovely tags and gorgeous tree.
Have you tried taking Barrocca? It is a tablet which you add to water to make a drink which you take every day! Try it, it may help you!

TangolikeRaindrop said...

Lovely tags! I'm still popping around peeking at WOYWW desks when I get a chance. I've uploaded some photos of the finished dresses, if you wanted to have a peek. I was told that I will be getting some photos of the dancers in them too, which I am really pleased about. Cheerio eenoo! :)

Wow - those tags look great!! I will have to make some tags over the holiday break.

It's Sunday here and I'm still getting around to visiting everyone's posts. If only I could take a day off from work......
