I have also been decorating our house for Christmas!
This is such a crazy time of year but I just LOVE it all the same!
I have found a couple of great things to share with you though, so I hope this makes up for my absence! The first is a great free e-zine that is perfect for the Holidays. Last week on my Christmas blog I shared a link to The Holiday Guide, a great free e-zine put together by Emily Henderson, known for her time on Design Star.
Just click the link to be taken to the site.

Finally, I just wanted to let you know that this year, over at my Christmas blog starting December 1st, I will be posting a 12 Day series that will explore Christmas Traditions from around the world and how we can incorporate these traditions into our Holiday planning, cooking and decorating.
On the last day I will be holding a festive linky party and you are all invited to join in with my
I'll Be Home for Christmas Linky Party!
I've even made a special button for the party and I would be so honoured if you would take one and help me spread the word!
Well, I'd better go and help Big Al rehearse for a big Christmas event at his school. His choir will be leading the Nine Lessons and Carols evening at his school next week and he has to learn a few carols that he isn't overly familiar with. I will leave you with one of my favourites as a #TuesdayTune.
I particularly love this version of the 16th century carol, The Coventry Carol. The "Coventry Carol" was performed in Coventry in England as part of a mystery play called The Pageant of the Shearmen and Tailors. The play depicts the Christmas story from the Gospel of Matthew and refers to when Herod orders all male infants under the age of two in Bethlehem to be killed. The lyrics from The Coventry Carol represent a mother's lament for her doomed child. This version is performed by Sting and was performed live at Durham Cathedral in 2009. I hope you enjoy this version too!
