I love the simplicity. Happy Christmas to you and Mike. xx Jessica December 22, 2013 at 8:11 pm - Reply Simple and cheap.. £1.20 total cost.

Bilbowaggins December 23, 2013 at 12:26 pm - Reply Stunning wreath, one of the loveliest I have seen. Wind down? Definitely “wind up” here – torrential rain, wind as strong as last Wednesday, could not feel less “Christmassy”. Stay safe :} Jessica December 23, 2013 at 9:33 pm - Reply Thanks Bilbo. Bloomin eck. Can’t believe it today. Had a lull, enough to get the Christmas tree inside, but now it’s back.. You too. Heather December 23, 2013 at 1:28 pm - Reply Phew! Hang on to your hat!!!

Keep safe x wherefivevalleysmeet December 23, 2013 at 7:18 pm - Reply Have a lovely Christmas Jessica – I have just learnt that my son and his family are stuck on a ferry unable to anchor whilst travelling over from France to us. They have been told that the boat is going to head back for France where the water is calmer – goodness knows when we shall see them. Jessica December 23, 2013 at 9:49 pm - Reply Oh Rosemary. It can’t be much fun on the high seas. I do hope they make it back tomorrow. Justine Wilkinson December 23, 2013 at 7:32 pm - Reply Love the wreath – simple but oh so effective.

Wishing you a joyful and peaceful Christmas. Jessica December 24, 2013 at 1:57 pm - Reply It’s always the plan but as it turned out, with the storm and everything, winding down didn’t quite work out. Hey ho. Tonight may be! Vera December 24, 2013 at 7:13 am - Reply Hope your Christmas is a good one, full of quietness, calmness, and love. Vx Jessica December 24, 2013 at 1:59 pm - Reply You too Vera. And hope all the animals are on their best behaviour too. rachel December 24, 2013 at 9:17 am - Reply Ah, so that’s the costly wreath! I love those little delicate ones, and would have made more, were it not for the fact that I haven’t any florist’s wire at all! Happy Christmas, Jessica. Jessica December 24, 2013 at 2:01 pm - Reply Thanks Rachel. Your hanging wreath is lovely, will definitely try that next year. I must put the florists wire somewhere safe… Chloris December 24, 2013 at 4:24 pm - Reply Love your wreath, Happpy Christmas , Jessica Chloris Jessica December 24, 2013 at 9:30 pm - Reply Thanks Chloris, you too.
