Happy Christmas Greetings from Kyrosmagica

This is a lovely Christmas wreath that my sister in law Lorraine Mallon made for me, and below is the table top arrangement that she made too. Isn’t it lovely? She’s branching out into creative endeavours, and this is a small sample of the sort of thing she hopes to do in terms of floral arrangement, and well as this she intends to make  jewellery, and paint too. So good luck to her, I wish her all the very best. My daughter also had a go at some floral vase arrangement too: I finished work at 6pm on Christmas Eve so I have been super busy, retail is such hard work! I’m now looking forward to two days off to rest my weary bones. My husband is cooking, (luckily he loves to cook!) so Lorraine and I are going to be sous chefs peeling the spuds. Hope you have a wonderful Christmas with friends and family. All the best for 2016. Bye for now, this is what I’d like to be doing….. you can dream …. No snow here, and no hot tub, sigh….!! Love Marje @ Kyrosmagica xxx

I’m not working in Ted Baker as this photo above might suggest, I […]
