Festive Red #Folksy

Thought we`d have a Folksy blog today and go for a festive red. Let`s face it red with green or gold always seems very festive, come to that with any other colour it still looks festive at this time of year. I think red and white together make us think of Christmas the most, being so reminiscent of a Santa suit. Ho ho ho. Goodness me, just put it into the search on Folksy, Christmas Red, and there are 88 pages. This could take a while.
It certainly did take a while. You know me, always trying for variety to make your browsing more interesting.
Yesterday was sunny with a frosty start and the sky stayed blue all day, it was wonderful.
For a change I got everything done that I intended to, housework, sewing buttons on and taking lot`s of photos of new items. I also took some new pics of items that needed better photos. I use the term `better` loosely here as I am such a rubbish photographer. I am trying to improve... not sure I`m succeeding but I am making the effort.
Then last night I went out to dinner, with workmates, at Jamie Oliver`s restaurant. It hasn`t been opened long in Norwich so I`ll tell you what it was like tomorrow because I`m doing this blog early ready for my evening out.
As usual, to see a bigger picture or a description, just click on the item to view it in the shop.
ENJOY!!!

The magic is the in each child`s face
they don`t know of the manic race
to get it all done by the day
so they can have a magical day.
They`ll know in the morning that Santa has been,
be greeted by the biggest heap they`ve ever seen.
The wrappings so glittery and bright
ribbons and bows that sparkle in the light.
The paper will be torn away so fast
they don`t want to make it last.
They`ll all be up with the dawn
so excited while you hide a yawn.
So much to do and get done
before you can relax and have fun.
Take it all one step at a time
just as I do with this rhyme.
It always gets done in the end
even if it`s likely to send
you ever so slightly mad
when it`s here you`ll be glad!!
