pretty presents

Hope you all had a lovely Christmas! It's been so nice spending the last few days relaxing with the family, and if I'm honest I've been spoilt rotten!
I love giving presents even more than I love receiving them... this year I decided to go for minimalist wrapping with plain brown paper and cute ribbon that I found in Copenhagen.

Presents for mammy Layford


Me and my family all agree that it's nicer to buy lots of little presents, and this year I got some gorgeous little bits and pieces.
More new PJs, which believe it or not are from Primark like the previous pair I posted about last month- I love the prints!



I think one of my favourite gifts this year was this 1947 copy of Good Housekeeping and these vintage Limoges pieces- a needlebox and miniature perfume bottles in their own little basket.

Homemade peppermint marshmallows ♥

So now all the commotion of Christmas is over, it seems just about time to start stressing about plans for New Year.. do you have your plans sorted yet? I'm looking forward to having a few chilled out days to catch up on my reading - and by that I mean blogs and books!
