Happy Holidays from Sweet Violet

Happy Holidays from Sweet Violet

Christmas wreath on wooden door

Today I have a quick post for you with some pretty holiday images, hopefully they will brighten your day, while you are busy making preparations.

mince pies and holly

I am going non-traditional this year and making a mint chocolate cake for Christmas, with crumbled candy cane on top. I just needed a break from pumpkin pie!

I hope you are able to spend plenty of time with loved ones.

pine cones and candle

This simple arrangement is so pretty, and you would only need a few pine cones, some eucalyptus, a few pieces of pine tree and a tea light.

Scotland Christmas ornament

I couldn't resist adding this photo - after writing the previous blog posts about Scotland!

Christmas tree in English manor house

Finally, here is a photo of my ideal Christmas tree, in a beautiful English manor house, surrounded by generations of portraits. Beautiful!

I will see you in the new year with a blog post on a new dress design I am working on. 

May you have much joy, love and beauty bestowed on you at the end of 2021, and a wonderful start to 2022!
