Christmas Spirit

I was having a nice Christmas spirit earlier this week, when we had snow:

Now it is almost gone again (the snow, not the spirit!), but I still hope we will have a white Christmas, like we ought to have. Being busy belongs to this time of the year, and to ensure this, I have joined in this:

Pip from Meet me at Mikes has drawn a Christmas stocking stitching pattern and I'm also stitching a-l-o-n-g .

My friend Melanie has given me this beautiful award:

And here are the rules:

You must be a true Christmas lover to receive this award.

The person to whom you give the award must also be in love with Christmas.

You must link back to the person who gave you the award.
You must list 5 things that you love about Christmas.

If you can't limit it to 5 things, then keep going till you run out of space!
Pass the award along to as many people as you like. That can be 1 or 45; it's up to you. But, you must pass it on to at least one person in order to keep the Christmas cheer going!
Let your recipients know that you have tagged them by leaving them a comment.

Well, here are my 5 things I love about Christmas:

1. Making presents for as many people as I can
2. All the smells of baking and cooking
3. Decorating the Christmas tree on Christmas Eve
4. Candles
5. Family
I will give this award to my friend Eileen. She has also received it from Melanie at the same time as I did, but I think I have the right to agree with Melanie here! The award also goes to the other side of the globe to Pip, whose blog has been showing lovely vintage Christmas pictures.


  1. Hia Ulla, quite right! Eileen is full of the spirit of Christmas. :-)

    Ooo the snow looks so beautiful in your pic. I hadn't heard of Mike before.

  2. The snow is gone here, too, although it is everywhere else in the Northeast. Your snow photo is so pretty! It is always nice to see pretty Christmas lights against the snow so I am hoping for a little before Christmas.

  3. Brr!

    hey.. that is going to be a CUTE stitchery. I love it. Thank you so much for the award Ulla. :-) I PLAN on posting about it tomorrow.

    hee-hee.. my word verification is
