Family trip to York yesterday for the festival of angels.
York is such a nice city and I couldn’t help feel christmassy when I got there! 🙂
Spent the day wandering around the city, stocking up on christmas pressies, eating roasted chestnuts, sampling the food at the christmas market and looking at the ice sculptures. It was really cold too and I had to love the fake snow (which were bubbles!) pumped out of a little machine on random buildings.
Then I’ve been Christmas tree shopping today! Spent hours…much like that O.C episode….wandering around, searching for the perfect one! Finally got it home and decorated and now the house is filled with that gorgeous familiar Christmas tree smell. Its left me feeling so festive!
These felt hats were handmade from Nepal. They remind me so much of Cabbage Patch dolls!
Then there was the ice sculptures themselves,
first a few childhood favourites…
Bob the builder!
Thomas the tank engine!
ice cold shots of baileys or raspberry sambucca anyone??
