Harrods is my favourite shop in the world!
And inside is just another world. Over the last few years millions of pounds have been spent restoring the interior. The work is nearly complete and there is a feeling of luxury everywhere.
This is just one of the escalators!
As always the Christmas department never disappoints.
We enjoyed seeing all the different themes and yes I came away with a new decoration for my tree. This year I was really taken by these sweet angels. My dear Mum bought me one.
Harrods still has a wonderful Santa's grotto and I am hoping in a few years time I will be taking my grandbaby there to meet Father Christmas..it's all so exciting that I will be able to go back to seeing Christmas through a young child's eyes.
I had some studio time today decided to do some Design team GD work for Ignacio. I thought my card needed to be a "vintage"Christmas card so I used one of my Nicecrane designs . Do pop over to the blog there are always lovely projects on show by our Design Team and often freebies too. This image is from the Happy Christmas sheet by Bowley which is available here. This is such a gorgeous sheet and I have plans for using other images from it. Here is my vintage childhood Christmas card
As you can see I am not making this for a boy or a girl as I have used pink and blue!
I would like to enter my card into the following challenges;

I hope you are beginning to get your Christmas preparations planned, there are just 46 days to go. I am going Christmas shopping with my best friend Karen on Thursday so I hope to get some of my presents out of the way.
We have a fairly mellow weekend planned so I do hope to get some more studio time too. I am still able to work outside in my garden studio with my little heater on. I also love being out there after work when it's dark..it's so snug and I get an hour or so crafting before my Hb gets in.
Enjoy your weekend and if you watch Strictly, things are hotting up aren't they?
No baby news yet, all is well and I know how many of you are so excited for our news, thanks for being such great blogging buddies,
