Cowart's Common Room
christmas thing for Pondie

Uploaded Image
please say this works. If it has, I'll admit that it looks a bit naff, but in real life a lot better (it's a flash thing on the camera). If it hasn't work then I'll lie and pretend it's just wonderful.
The hanging items are kept in the numbered pockets round the edge to which I add little chocolates each day, one for each boy. They then hook a new decoration on the buttons on the "tree" and snarf a choc.

Exmoorjane's Avatar MILLA!!!!! WOW! You did it, you darn well did it. Now no excuses - I want to see pics of the house (not mentioning the C word).
Yes, flash has a habit of making things look trashy when they're not - viz Oak Room floor.....but I can assure the assorted members of Purplecoo that your handiwork is never EVER trashy.
Now you should show them your beautiful fabric books.....

Milla's Avatar what gloriously wise words from Jane (teehee).
Now, if anyone needs any help in submitting photos, do ask, it really is frightfully easy. Off to hunt out the pic of the 2 heads for Un Peu...
