Mr Robin and chestnuts.

On saturday we had a ride to Stockesley a lovely little market town that has some wonderful shops and one of them always has  a christmas preview day with 10% off which is where I made a bee line for!!

Dasher and dancer were tethered outside

and inside was full to the rafters with gorgeous christmas goodies, the shop was full of people drinking mulled wine and eating freshly baked mince pies and arms full of robins, stockings and snowflakes so I couldn't take any pics of the downstairs rooms

Of course I had to make a few purchases well it would have been rude not to wouldn't it?

A round fat mr robin, I'm thinking I should have bought a slightly smaller but just as fat  mrs robin to keep him company

a tea light holder in the shape of a christmas tree it just needs prettying up a bit with some holly  and those little snowflakes

I also bought lots of stickers for my book and christmas card envelopes and some jingly bells.

We had a lovely time browsing about in the warm sunshine, we got all out fruit and veg and meat there as I like to shop in independant shops if we can and back home we roasted chestnuts over an open fire

well we would have had it been an open fire!!

Roasted chestnuts and a mug of hot chocolate with sprinkles, where did I put those marshmallows???

Love Lucey xx

I forgive you for mentioning the C word! The reindeer are lovely, as are your tea light holder and stars. I'm glad you've got some decent chestnuts, all the ones around here are too small to bother with!
Have a great week :o)

That looks like my kind of shop!

I CANNOT wait for Christmas with Luca this year - everybody is very excited so we are just starting to buy him a few bits and bobs.

I keep meaning to do a hot chocolate post - have you tried the new Baileys Biscotti flavour? It is yum and delicious in a naughty hot choc!
