Happy New Year .
Before Christmas was such a rush that we didn't get around to doing anything about decorating the house except for putting up a tree. This didn't really matter as we were away for Christmas anyway and, to be hones,t the family were all probably a bit fed up with the Christmas stuff that has been cluttering up the house since October.
We were the venue for New Years Day lunch - 14 friends and family for venison stew and mash followed by stripey jelly and icecream - so the girls and I decided that we needed some New Years decoration. They have been nagging at me to make a heart shaped door wreath - we finally got round to it and this was the result made with dogwood, rosemary and chilli peppers. We also made up some tea-light holders - a straight steal from Paula Pryke - glass cups covered with double sided sticky tape and rosemary.
