Welcome to my first post on my first blog- will anyone out there read it, I ask myself? Oh well, here goes...

welcome to my cottage where we keep christmas in our hearts all year
My name is Callie - nickname Mrs.Christmas - and welcome to my blog, and to my cottage where we keep Christmas in our hearts all year! But there is a reason - I promise, I make and source Christmas decorations all year - which means that I have to have some decorations up all year partly because I need a tree, garlands etc to photograph the goodies that I sell, but also because I am a Christmas devotee and used to get so sad putting all our lovely decorations away, I decided that I loved them all too much to put them back in boxes, was tired of worrying what people would think if I kept them out all year and decided to wear my nickname with pride!!

As you will see from the photographs I specialise in Scandinavian and Country Christmas lovelies and have sold at Christmas Markets for the last few years, having done the' retail thing' in the past I prefer markets, fairs and coffee mornings - they are much more fun! It was while I was at a small craft village last Christmas that I was given the idea to join the 'blog family' by two lovely ladies who independently came in and photographed my little cabin and posted the photos on their blogs. They were both so kind and supportive that I have followed their blogs ever since - The Vintage Magpie and Sal's Snippets. They are always full of news and lovely photographs - as well as gorgeous things to buy....

I now do everyday markets too, with a selection of vintage, homespun and country style items as well as crafty bits'n'bobs. I am also looking to sell some bits on this blog - but as I have some markets to do this month I will be doing that over the next month or two.I will be at Topsham market on Saturday 8th August with some craft bits - photographs to follow.

Anyway I hope that there are some of you out there who love the spirit of Christmas as much as I do and that some of the posts, quotes and photographs that I publish will give you that little bit of Christmas cheer everyday!

With Warm Wishes to You,
