Just before Christmas the Halifax gifted me some high street vouchers to spend finding the perfect gift for someone special, which was incredibly lovely of them and I knew exactly what to do with them. My mama has so many photographs stashed away in albums that hardly ever get looked at. We looked through them a couple of months ago because we were looking for particular pictures and found so many more that we had forgotten about.
I found these beautiful picture frames in Homebase (which are a total bargain in the sale now!) and I thought they would look lovely on my mama's living room wall. The detail in them is really intricate, making them look a lot more expensive than they were, so I picked up two! I purposely didn't fill them with photographs because I wanted us to be able to pick them out together, and that's exactly what we did yesterday afternoon. I'm going to spend this evening scanning them in so I can resize them to fit and change the few coloured images we chose either black and white or sepia to fit in with the others. We had a lovely time choosing which photographs to include together and I'm so pleased that she loves the frames!
My mama's pup served as the distant drunk relative. You know the one, gets over excited, has too much to eat and goes a bit crazy? He wouldn't leave us alone until we put a paper hat on him and took a picture. I'm convinced that pup is really a person in disguise you know! We even managed to get him to wear some silly antlers and pose for a picture, he wasn't as thrilled with them as he was with the paper hats though.
Little Ralphie enjoyed munching away on his usual vegetable selection and I gave him a couple of extra treats too. He's currently hopping around my feet expecting more treats so I'm not sure extras yesterday were the best idea! We had a wonderful Christmas, even if we were totally confused with the Dr Who episode that was on! I think it's because we're not regular viewers but we always tune in for the Christmas specials! I also ate way too many crackers with cheese on, but I do that every year and I love it! In fact, I think there's some left....
Sending lots of well wishes from my family to yours!
