Its cold outside

and rather dark this morning. The shortest day will be here soon and so will Christmas. Presents to be wrapped, house to be decked and kitchen to fill with smells of food and spices. Its nice, in amongst all the festivity preparations, to just take five minutes and breathe remember why we do this, to share with family and friends to celebrate and give joy. This morning I thought I would try and share a few festive images to make you smile and put you in the festive spirit. The window in The Gallery Leek seems to be a delighting  all who see it, and I am pleased. My lovely Catherine Dineley photographer went and took some night time shots. They are beautiful photographs and unlike mine have no reflection from the glass! I hope you enjoy them and share with friends a Merry Christmas to you all....


always a wise owl to keep order !

the whole window

wouldnt be Christmas without a deer

and the cheeky mouse peeping round a corner !
