After blowing out the driveway on Thursday I set about putting away some of the Christmas decorations. I now only have the tree up and the cards up. I hope to take the tree down this weekend and I'll leave the cards up until the 12th night. I enjoy having all the Christmas things in the house, but like to have the house back to normal right after Christmas.
We got this from dd best friend "K" for Christmas.
Inside was this; a lovely Crabtree and Evelyn gift set for Gardeners Hands. I told dh he could use the case as a new lunch box, he said he would pass!! I am going to use it to store some sewing supplies in.
I saw this great idea over at Cindy's blog. If you dry out your potato peelings for 24 to 48 hours, you can put them on your fire to help clean off the creosote and build up on your chimney. So on Christmas Eve this was what was sitting on the hearth:
You still have to clean your chimney, but thought this would help. The peelings burn at a high heat when dry.
Took a photo of across the way on Thursday afternoon. Winter bloody Wonderland, for those who don't have to shovel!!!
