where's Rudolph?

Something a bit different today, at work we get to pick which charity we raise funds for, the current charity is alzheimer's society, so I made a few bags of Magic Reindeer Food up...... 75 to be precise, and it raised £37.50 - a much needed boost to a wonderful charity cause.

not a tidy desk by the time I finished *lol*

oooooooooh shiny!

Went to Heanor Antiques Centre today, on the look out for Christmas presents..... didn't find any but did come across some more vintage christmas ball-balls - £2 a bag, there were some other colour combo's but none had the white pictorial ones in, which match my ball-balls from last year ; )

I thought the cone shaped one was made of wood, but once I had a closer look I realised it was tightly tied cotton, same as the two small ball-balls.
