Whoosh

Suddenly it's the 3rd week of 2013, how did that happen?! 

Christmas came and went in a flash, we had a lovely relaxing time here in our little corner of the world. It was  the first Christmas in our new home and also Bilbo's first Christmas which made it extra special. I took a few weeks off from the studio which was well needed to re-charge my batteries for the year ahead.
 So better late than never here's a few photos of our little festive break.....

A few days before Christmas I treated Mum and Lex to tickets to The Harry Potter Studio Tour, yes I know what your thinking "they've been there before" it was actually mine and Mums 4th time!!!! But Lex had not been and they had dressed the great hall like it was in the film at Christmas time, well we could miss that!


Each table was set in the Hogwarts house's colours, 


It was stunning with all the trees


and the food look delightful


it's a shame it wasn't real


The room sets were also dressed for Christmas


We had never seen the nightbus by night, it was pretty cool


as was riding on Siris's/Hagrid's bike


This is Lilly and James house after 
"he who must not be named" had visited on that fatefull night

It was wonderful to see the sets all ready for Christmas, 
it really got us into the Christmas spirit


This was our Christmas Eve, 
Nightmare before Christmas on the TV, 
mulled wine and special glasses that made the tree lights 
into snowmen when you looked through them!


There were a lot of presents on Christmas morning


Bilbo helped lay the table!


We had a tasty lunch 
(even if I do say so myself!)


 Christmas pud was made by my Dad


We both got some lego for Christmas, 
Lex got a hobbit piece, here's the cat Bilbo and lego Bilbo!


On Boxing Day we went to Lex's Mum's for an amazing lunch


and a few days after that we got together with Lex's cousins for afternoon tea 
(made by me)


We had, finger sandwiches...


Cupcake with yummy raspberry and vanilla frosting,
 thanks to my friend Donna.....


 Ginger cake with lime icing....


Peppermint meringues....


and fancy flower tea

A lovely time was had by all.

  1. Hi Elanor,

    How I would have loved to be a guest - at Hogwarts or at your Christmas tables!

    I do hope I get to see the Harry Potter sets before they depart!

    As usual - your feasting creations are incredible. I still wouldn't mind having another of your Pavlovas!

    Thanks for sharing your pictures! They are just enough to make me want to visit!
