In the period leading to Christmas some people buy an Advent Calendar to check off each day before December 25. Usually intended for children, it appears that in recent years there has been a rise in the popularity of luxury ones aimed at indulgent adults who feel the necessity to treat themselves on the run-up to the big day itself – from expensive candles and perfume to miniature bottles of Prosecco or Whisky and even chunks of cheese.
So I thought to balance all this extravaganza I would offer you an alternative in the form of a flower a day from Sunday 3rd December until Sunday 24th December.

Happy days! That’s a pretty one. Mad impulse – I’m on the train to York. St Nicholas Christmas fair and a quick coffee with James xx
You are an impulsive person aren’t you! York will be madness at this time of year. Enjoy the fair – buy me a gingerbread biscuit 🙂
Stem ginger shortbread do you? Heading back already. It wasn’t too bad but I was on a mission xx
Ooh yes, that will do nicely. Thank you 🙂
Stem ginger shortbread!!!! Double yum. I feel like I’m evesdropping here, but it is such fun. 🙂
Eavesdropping (or butting in as we say) is what makes blogging so much fun 😀
True. Stem ginger shortbread is on my baking list for today now. 🙂
Oh I feel like snapping I’m waiting and waiting to get a Telstra bill fixed up, I’ve been nearly 2 hours on and off the phone and looking at posts to keep my sanity… This beauty helps…
Stay lopsided! They’re great compositions.
