~ A beautiful gift ~

(My inspiration board)

I was so surprised the other day when I recieved a beautiful gift from my sweet friend Tausha.
She sent me the new Rachel Ashwell 2012 calendar wrapped so pretty..
I admired it in Tausha's beautiful home.
Tausha's blog is  Simply Me
Tausha is so talented and I think she should be a stylist for Rachel Ashwell.
Or she should have her own book published with all of her stunning photos.
Thanks so much Tausha for your friendship and your kindness

I put the calendar on my inspiration board along with some favourite photos and bits and bobs.
Isn't it pretty?!
I marked my sons' birthdays with the gold push pins.

Have you started your Christmas decorating?
We've been busy here at 425 putting up our Christmas tree and decorations.
My sons always put up the ornaments on our tree.
I love the ones they made in school,those are my favourites.
This is truly my favourite time of year!
Have a wonderful week friends

Very pretty, Rachel, and so sweet of Tausha! I have commented many times on her blog that I think she needs to have a coffee table book. She is so talented! Have a good week!
