The Spirit of Christmas Past.

Christmas day 2011

Oops! Looks like Christmas totally passed this old blog by! I feel thoroughly ashamed of myself, yet at the same time feel that the result of my lack of posting left me a lot less stressed than previous years!

Christmas does not agree with me. I have so many ideas of things to do, but when the time comes all my enthusiasm dwindles and I’m left well and truly down in the dumps…. as well as extremely exhausted!

I did however feel chipper enough to make both my Grannies and my own Christmas cake, Christmas cards, a few presents (at the last second- nothing new there!) and a few Christmas decorations- nothing too fancy though!

Of course Mr. S. Clause found time to visit the Tickety Boo household on Christmas Eve (Hurrah!) and on Christmas day all my gifts were opened with much excitement (even if they were opened at some abnormal time in the morning!) You must hand it to the chap- he certainly knows what this girl likes… though you can’t give him all the credit- I have an inkling that Santa’s little helpers do most of the leg work!

I have quite a selection of goodies to show you, so I shall start with the dinky items! My jewels…..

A little pup!

Kingfisher  Celluloid brooch( I love things with birds on!)

1940's RN silver sweetheart brooch- which is the first
thing in my collection to do with the Royal Navy!
So I am super pleased!!!

Why what is this? Oh my, it's a another piece to do
with the Royal Navy....  like buses eh!
RN Comforts badge- 1940's.

Perspex RAF sweetheart pendant.
I knew about this as I found it- It was extremely hard to be parted from it for a whole month!

30's Paste Dress clip/ brooch set from my Auntie!

My very best LoobyLoo from my sis- isn't it just the tops!
Tupneys christmas card 2011
I've just done a preview and it looks like it's the 31'st today! Blimey! I was rather hoping to cling on to this year for a little longer but it looks like the New Year is nigh. AHHHHHHHHHHHHHH.

Here’s to a happy and prosperous New Year Folks. Chin Chin!

Sincerely yours

  1. I love the kingfisher and the last brooch. I am unsure as to where 2011 has gone - but it is nearly over! Have a grand NYE and see you in 2012 :)

  2. Merry Christmas, my dear old girl! I'm very envious of your bag o' swag! xxx

  3. Happy Holidays, beautiful lady! Love your 'new' beauties!

  4. What lovely presents! Happy New Year!

  5. What lovely presents you got. I wish someone would get the sodding hint and buy me something second hand. That was a bit grumpy. I got a lovely leather satchel, but also a load of tat that I wont ever use. Such a waste. I feel a bit like that about Christmas too, it really helps to just go with the flow and accept that you can't do everything. Happy New Year!

  6. Love your gifts.... happy new year :)

  7. That last brooch is just the tops! You really are the cat's miaow Tupney!

  8. Just love these! Have a lovely New Year's Eve!!!

  9. What lovely pieces - that last brooch is so pretty, such beautiful colours! :o)

  10. Happy new year, Tups. That kingfisher is splendid, and the Royal Navty comforts badge most intriguing.

  11. Oh, don't your presents look divine, what a fantastic collection of baubles! And you look just lovely in that dress! Merry Christmas and Happy New Years!


Ta very much for your messages folks!
