I have all my Christmas gifts ready to go to  family and friends I love.  On Ebay I was fortunate to win bids on mugs decorated with Faberge eggs, quite a good number actually. So these are boxed in small sets along with chocolate, tea, or coffee. I saved a set for me too!
Here's wishing all of you good holidays.
All the best Kitt

Well, I only hope that the  The Lost World of Nicholas and Alexandra will finally arrive. Also my mum has already told my grand parents not to give me anything, just some little money, because I only want to buy another book :)

IŽll get only two presents under the Christmas tree: a large and beautiful book with the most famous paintings of Biblical stories and DVD Prince Caspian :)

IŽll be giving DVD Ben Hur to my best friend, Bible to another friend, CD with musical Joan of Ark to my mum, Shaun the Sheep to my fathaer and a toy bear to my nephew, whoŽs going to be born in several weeks :)

We stopped celebrating the holidays with any great fanfare after my mother in law died four and a half years ago.

We put up no decorations and have no big meal or party.  However, I have already bought my presents.  For my mother, a large print bible and a silver dollar from her birth year of 1922 that was made into a brooch.

For my husband a rare copy of Max Headroom on video.

I already know that I am getting a small Picasso Cat figurine by Rosa Wachtmeister from my husband and I always get a new pair of hand knitted slippers from my mother.

My son is still an enigma.  But I know that we will find something small that he truly wants.

We have tried to get back to the simplicity of giving and receiving.  We have a quiet Christmas Eve in front of our fireplace with a glass of cider or wine and a very calm Christmas Day.

No books this year.

I think my family knows that my collection is pretty big and they don't know where to start to look for something I don't already have.   :-)

I got two books - "Cristmas carols of our grandmothers" with beautiful vintage pictures and "Bible - events and places in art and photogrphy" and I love them both. I convinced my parents few years ago that there are no real Christmas for me unless I get at least one book :)
