Cute & Gorgeous #FolksyFriday

I started off with a theme today as you can see. It was going to be all things cute and amusing. Then the search went down on Folksy and I couldn`t find anything at all. Still I suspect these things are sent to try us. So instead I went onto the forums to look about and add things at random. Gorgeous crafts that caught my eye.
So today it might be random but as usual they are fabulous crafts worthy of viewing. Hope you like them as much as I do.
Yesterday we got the Christmas decorations out and decked our home. The christmas tree was set up in readiness for the grandchildren to help me to put everything on it. This has become something we love to do and they always seem to like hearing where the various decorations come from.
Ours is always a traditional tree with decorations that belonged to parents and things I bought over the years with my daughters when they were young. I still smile when I think of my grandaughter, now 14, as a little tot sitting in the box of decorations surrounded by tinsel.
I was telling the story to the youngest two grandchildren and they promptly climbed in to the box and wrapped tinsel around them, they looked so cute I had to take a picture.
We all had a great time and then had a paper lantern making session followed by drawing and colouring after tea. Good fun all round.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

Can you feel it building in the air,
do you look around, stop and stare?
It`s everywhere you go, just sizzling
grab it quick before it starts fizzling
out, just grab the lovely feeling,
forget the wheeling and dealing.
It`s Christmas spirit and so exciting,
look around at all the lighting.
Sparkles and shimmers everywhere
happy faces here and there.
More cheery than we`ve seen for a while
so many faces with a big smile
as Christmas spirit takes a hold
and bah humbug disappears in a fold.
Not that spirit that alcoholic kind
although that is about I find.
I mean the good old fashioned fun
that leaves good memories when the season`s done.
So hold on tight and get ready
don`t worry about being steady
throw yourself into the season
you don`t need any other reason!!
