Folksy Friday - Green!

Although I'm loving the cosy and creative festive period completely, this icy weather and the dark dark mornings do make me long for spring - here's a Folksy Friday dedicated to my favourite spring-green colours!

Of course we couldn't not have a decoration in there somewhere!

Right, now back to the festivities ;-)

Hello :) it's all go in the Wrapped Up With String household, with present-making, decoration-crafting and card-writing, and last weekend we held our little festive housewarming, which meant plenty of...

...decorations everywhere!

...sweet-treats on the tree

...and everywhere else!

...lovely housewarming gifts

...treasures discovered in the attic

...and resulted in this giant pile of festive desserts to spur me on through my Christmas card-writing ;-)

What festive (or anti-festive?) activities have you been getting up to recently?

Music Monday - Kate Bush!

Happy Monday! I'm working today (I normally have Mondays off and craft-happy!) because we're off to Krakow later in the weekend, so I've scheduled a very entertaining Music Monday in case you get bored in my absence ;-) Kate Bush - one of my absolute favourites!

The videos aren't the best quality...they're pretty old school!

And my two favourites together :)

Ahhh I love her!

If any of you have any holiday tips or good places to visit in Krakow, do let me know!

Folksy Friday - Festivity!

The return of Folksy Friday is upon us! Of course, this week the theme had to be festive :)

I love them all and wish I could fill the house with treats!

What are you up to over the weekend?

Here I Am!

Goodness me, that absence was far too long! The snow started just as we moved into our new house, making the last week very pretty, but also pretty tricky, as ascending our front steps is akin to climbing Everest...maybe!

But now we're here and cosy and have spent the last week...

...Christmassing everything up!

Finding new homes for our things alongside each others'...

Making Christmas presents (can you tell what it is yet?)...

Listening to gorgeous new Christmas songs...

And discovering old favourites (how mental was Toys?? me and my sister LOVED it!) ...

And sticking to this cosy post, I'm off to watch Kirsty and Phil's Perfect Christmas with a mince pie and a cup of tea! This time, I promise I won't be gone so long :)

I missed you!

Sound of Sunday

Oh goodness, I'm just watching the X-Factor on ITV Player...that show's producers don't half know how to play on people's emotions!

The original and the best...

But because it is for a very good cause...
