Christmas episode 1

Helloo again! This is our second segment. the husband tells me I do too many take offs of kiwi accent in this one. Not sure why. Nerves? Anyhoo, here it is.


A word about our Samantha. She is such a honeypie! We get on like a house on fire and she is so supportive, keeping an eye on me and making sure the action keeps going. I love working with her and I so appreciate her asking me to come and do this.
Two more to go before Christmas. All to do with making a great table setting for Christmas Dinner. :)

  4. Dear Mrs. C.,

    Double-cool! I really like the -- hessian?-- Christmas tree. We'd call that fabric burlap over here.

    It's fun to actually see you in action and to hear your voice, after all this time of communicating via words and pictures.

    Very much enjoying the series, and looking forward to Christmas crackers. They're hardly known at all in the U.S., and are special when they do turn up at random shops.

    Very best,

    Natalie

    1. It's a wonder you can understand me, Natalie, I talk so fast! heheh. Actually funny story about hessian/burlap - I did a Pinterest search for hessian tree, got 2 hits. Hmm, thinks me, that cannot be right, and ewnt off to find out what the US calls it. A search for burlap tree was far more productive! AND, I didn't find a single example of this style of tree, which encouraged me to go with it.
      Also, when first reading Georgette Heyer as a youngun, my intro to 18th C clothing, it took me a while to realise that hessian boots weren't made from...burlap! ;-)
