My family spoils me and this Christmas was no exception, I received so many wonderful gifts, some making me smile, some touching my heart  and some making me laugh.
Two that made me laugh and that I will always treasure are two Nutcrackers Mac made me.  I collect Nutcrackers and always hope I'll get one for Christmas, but this year I got 2 very special ones.  Mac bought 2 regular Nutcrackers and then gave them a makeover.  One became Jeeves and one became Hercule Poirot.
They're wonderful.
I've put Jeeves to work in the dining room and Hercule will move upstairs to the tv room so he can watch his "little grey cells" at work.


  1. These are fabulous! How clever! So pleased you had a good Christmas x

  2. Mac is so talented. I don't know which I like better, Jeeves or M. Poirot. Happy New Year to you both. :)

  3. Lovely! As you can imagine, I sympathise with you about your daughter.

  4. OH, I love them both but I have a real soft spot for Hercule Poirot. I would love to have him, maybe it would help me to use my little grey cells too! xx

  5. I just wanted to pop by and wish you the happiest new year. May your 2013 be full of blessings, laughter, and happy surprises. Thank you for being a blog friend and a joyful part of my life.
