A finish and those “Chooks”…+ H.I.Q. deco’s

Lots of photos……………




I was very happy as to how this bag turned out…

They are at it again……the adventures of “Dale and Peg”…..oh dear!!!!!!…. follow there latest escapades here……LOL…….

(A massive thank you to everyone, and I mean everyone who has participated in the venture of these two, it has touched my heart, these two have been out and about for nearly a year now…)….

Chez is hosting this fun little tour….so here are a few of my Christmas deco’s..



My Dad bought these little Santa’s the year my twins were born, they are a little worse for wear, but they still go up, they are now 28 years old…my Dad passed away over 20 years ago, he would be thrilled to know I still put these up….


The Teddies are wearing my selection of antlers, but I will wear them to work as time gets closer…


My Santa hats….these will also be worn….


The "Dried Noodle Star”…….lost a noodle or two….has a problem standing up, but it comes out every year…Made by number one twin…at preschool…


and of course the decoupage…….number two twin….he still stands by himself…..LOL…

Just a few of my treasures……more tomorrow…..

Happy Tuesday, take care, keep safe

  16. Just love the bag Peg, the fabric is so colourful.

    Last Saturday I found Dale & Peg's cousins in one of the David Jones window displays - they weren't as attractive and had grey feathers, but I must admit I did think of Dale & Peg when I took the pic - have a look at my blog for Sat. 8.12.12.

    What makes Christmas so special is when we bring out items that our loved ones made and also cherished.

    I love reading your blog Peg, it is always full of wonderful things.

  17. Love the bag and the Christmas decorating. How many antlers...you must have a different one for each work day!

    I have lots of Christmas deco's from when my kids were little too, so cute.
    As for those Chooks, wow they are so POSH, snacking at the cake stand. They bring some great humour to the blogs they feature on, I love the stories and adventures they have... kept them going!!
