Autumnal bells!!

Here are two more - these are autumnal.  Did you ever wonder why I do all my Christmas giveaways in 'un-Christmas' colours?  Well, it's cause I found out years ago that people liked to keep them up all year - as suncatchers too.  

I must also admit that I find Christmas colours confusing too!!!  I always think that red and green are the 'real' Christmas colours (boring) but each year when the shops bring their stock out (often in September!) the colours are varied which can cause a lot of confusion for an OG (old git) like me!

So, I've made it a sort of 'routine' that each year people get wacky coloured giveaways!!!  I usually give them to friends and those I don't see all year because they live too far away.  The furthest that one will travel is to Tasmania to a school friend of mine.  I know she loves the little dangle she gets each year.  The closest ones will go to friends across and down the road.  The problem is that I usually run out and rarely get one for our tree!!!

  3. Hi Jane, I especially love the amber coloured thread. Is it Lizbeth?

    Perhaps you should give one to Nick to hide away and then he could place it on your tree on Christmas morning. That would ensure you will have one of your own bells to enjoy.

  4. The variegated one is Falling Leaves (Lizbeth) and the plain thread is 'something or other' by 'somebody or other'. An old one!!!!

  5. You're right about 'christmas' colours - I still think of red, green & white as 'traditional' but anything goes these days...

  6. I like colors I can use any time of year unless it's something specifically for the tree or a wreath. And then white usually shows up best unless it's a white or silver tree so I can leave white up year round too!

I beg your pardon? I didn't quite catch what you said.
