Yesterday was my birthday, I can never usually have a weeks holiday at Christmas but since it was a special birthday I got the week off, we have gone away on a short trip with ledger.
We are on the "Four countries and Swiss Glacial Express" Austria is where we are staying in Bludenz.
Sun set this evening, quite disappointed only snow on the mountain tops.
Then we had the opportunity to go and take photos of the Fairy tale Neuschwanstein Castle where Walt Disney based beauty and the beast.
Tomorrow we go to Chur in Switzerland to catch the Glacier Express Train which I am really looking forward too.
While we where shopping today I found these bottle brush Xmas trees seen them on other blogs never seen them in the UK only cost me a couple of euros.
Will need to find myself some large jars now.

I am a bit Barr-Humbug at Christmas even though I tend to stitch loads of Xmas decorations every year, one of the girls at work showed me a picture in September from pininterest and said she was going to collect all the used plastic cups and would I order her some staples,
This is what she did with the cups. This the entrance to our Maternity unit.
Each snowman takes about 180 cups.

I have enjoyed this sal as there was no pressure to produce or show anything each month at this time of year I am busy making gifts for Christmas so will share the in the New a Year.
I could almost call this upcycling I started with a several pices of fabric and ended up with this after a
workshop with Stuart at the Vikingloom in November.
They are all hung up at home.

Every year I go with my Mother to her Flower club Christmas flower demonstration, my mother is on the committee and in charge of the raffle so I always go and help her sell tickets, I have never won anything in the raffle and usually quite glad as the flower displays for Christmas demonstration are usually so big I would never have got them in the car, but this year my numbers were pulled twice and even my Mother won a display as well.
