Merry Christmas!

I've made the stuffings and sauces and planned the cooking times... I've even done some work in the garden and pruned the grape vines! Now I can put my feet up, and have a cup of tea and a slice of stollen while I listen to the carols from King's (just up the road in Cambridge).

Wishing you all of you a peaceful and happy Christmas Day!

Thank you for following my adventures on Purple Podded Peas in 2013

If you're travelling stay safe this stormy Christmas.



  1. Have a wonderful Christmas x Jane

  2. We'll be listening to Carols from Kings too - it's a beautiful start to Christmas proper! Have a lovely Christmas Celia and a very happy new year x

  3. Merry Christmas and Happy New Year!

  4. Am in a lull with the cooking too- turkey is in the oven and fun ..to see what others are doing... Merry Christmas!!

  5. Happiness and good health you and yours, Celia

  6. Merry Christmas and a happy new year xxx

  7. Oh Celia, every time that I hear those first notes of Once in Royal David's City, I feel tears fill my eyes. My brothers were in a boys choir back in our Virginia childhood (perhaps I've already told you this) and I love the Lessons and Carols service.

    Best wishes to you and yours for a wonderful Christmas...it is already Christmas Day over there! Won't it be fun to see what the New Year brings?


  8. Celia and Cliff, I wish you a very Merry Christmas; we have a beautiful day here in North Bucks even though the ground is saturated.

    Celia, I thank you for continuing to educate and enighten me.

    Merry Christmas!

  9. Merry Christmas to you too xxx

  10. Hi Celia - belated Christmas greetings and best wishes for the New Year which is almost upon us.

    I read the lovely article about you - and was impressed by your beautiful work - in the Dec. issue of UK Country Living, then decided to peek at your blog and see what was for sale in your Etsy shop. All the cards are stunning. Being a blogger myself I'm always interested in finding new creative bloggers.......I will be following you as I love anything to do with art and sewing!

    I'm originally from Devon where I grew up loving the countryside and Dartmoor. I now live in North Carolina having emigrated to the US many, many years ago! England is and always will be home to me and, when I visit, the beauty of the countryside and coastline make me wonder how I was ever able to leave!

    Off to have my afternoon cup of tea along with a mince pie soon. Have to finish them up, along with the Christmas cake, as back to healthy eating very soon!

    Best wishes - Mary (A Breath Of Fresh Air)

    P.S. Celia, you do ship to the US don't you?

  11. I hope you both had a lovely Christmas Celia. Best wishes for 2014
