We’ve had a lovely quiet day at home celebrating Christmas. I thought I’d share a few images with you before heading off to bed.
Our ‘tree’ this year was a big bunch of native New Zealand flax flowers. Our decorations are an eclectic mixture: old favourites from my childhood (the orange bird, the egg, the horse in the background); Maori tiki; origami cranes (made by me); vintage crystal chandelier pieces that I bought in a London market; and traditional Swedish straw stars.
For gift wrap I used Chinese rice paper decorated with off-cuts of vintage kimono fabric photocopies from a previous project.
…A big bunch of hydrangea flowers from our garden. Love the colours!
A lot of yummy things have been cooked and eaten over the last two days. This is a bitter chocolate and almond tart with whipped cream and fresh raspberries made by my man. His first ever attempt at homemade short crust pastry and it was to die for.
I hope you’ve had (are having or will have!) a very happy Christmas wherever in the world you are!
Lots of love,
