Good to see I'm not the only one who uses old stamps on cards. I just LOVE them. I've been sick for 2 weeks, so haven't finish posting all my OS cards...must do soon. Thanks for the email. When I finally get better I'll give it a go. Amd OMG I'd love some of that Christmas fruit cake...mmmmm. Have a good weekend.

Your idea for using old Xmas stamps is brilliant. I've seen the dried orange slices on a couple of blogs lately and would love to try them out for myself. Love your blog, full of inspiration and I'm full of admiration.

I have been wracking my brains trying to think which country Brum was in - and then I realized - Birmingham! Gosh I have been away a long time - too long obviously. Enjoy the German Markets - and take plenty of photo's to share with us here. It sounds fun.
I have a day to myself today - and its raining at last, a perfect day to bake. The oven (no aga here unfortunately) will be going on soon and I have several oranges from a neighbors tree to cut up and dry along with some cakes to bake. Thanks for the recipe for the dried oranges. Love the cards - a good way to use old Christmas stamps as some of them are just so pretty.

I love reading your blog Simmy, your cards are really lovely-are they used Christmas stamps or did you buy them to save for cards? I also meant to ask a few days ago but forgot, where did you get that Gorgeous advent calender from? I only discovered your blog e few months ago when you were thinking of stopping blogging and I crossed my fingers and checked everyday and was soo please when you decided to keep writing!! You are a real inspiration

Very cute cards, but I'm a million miles away and won't qualify! I will start making mince pies and freezing them this weekend! Can I ask you how you dry your oranges - low temp in the oven I'm guessing?

Your cards are great. Fab idea to use old stamps.

Well done to Amber for the cake. It looks gorgeous.

I too have been waiting til my daughter is old enough to take her to see the Nutcracker. My mother took me when I was 11 and my daughter is 10 so I guess next year we'll be doing this too. I hope you have a lovely time.

Great cards. The sight of your cake and the thought of mince pies has been making my mouth water. Unfortunately I'm stuck in California and I think there's all sorts of customs rigmorale just to get fruit stuff into the State. I wish I was spending Christmas back home in the UK! Have a lovely time at the ballet.

Lovely cards and cake! And, oh, the Nutcracker! Ours are not quite big enough but we read the story over and over in the run up to Christmas. Along with a gazillion other Christmas/winter books. I love it all - bring on more festive posts say I!

Simmy, here in the States we would call you the Energizer Bunny... you just keep going and going... not sure when you sleep dear!

...The cards are absolutely lovely!! And mincemeat... yum... I haven't had that since I was a child..no matter if I don't win the wonderful give away I'll still have to give a hand at a mincemeat pie...

Wow- those are great stamps! I love getting ready for Christmas, it's the best part of the holiday especially when I make things with my kids.

Marie

Wonderful Cards Simmy. I Love them! I have always wanted to go to a German Christmas market. Hopefully one day I will get the chance! Don't work too hard over these next few weeks. Don't forget to take a few minutes just for Simmy! (((HUGS)))

How wonderfully festive and fun!

I went to the Nutcracker last Sunday. It was amazing better than ever. Have a great day.
