Christmas comes but once a year ...

in The Gallery Leek! I have just finished a Christmas window display. Sewing like a busy bee to create a lampshade Christmas tree all decked out in hand made bunting , baubles and old glass buttons. Characters vied for a place in the scene, they are nothing but exhibitionists ! A reindeer pulls Lizzie across the Winter landscape in HMS Minifred, George the dog hides around the trees waiting for squirrels to appear but this time no squirrels or rabbits just the ever watchful eye of a wise old owl ensuring decorum prevails ! Mice scurry around reveling in the excitment and  little gondoliering rabbit joins the fray trying to help create the story of three sailing ships but alas only two can fit this window! Yee ha the donkey ( who thinks he is a wild west pony) gets in on the act squeezing himself into the smallest of gaps he peers through hoping to get noticed. If you go to visit, give him a wave  such a small donkey but bags of character !

busy arranging everyone !
