Had a good break,

Morning all,

Had a lovely break from blogging, Some of the time I have been away, Went on a winter tour of some Christmas Markets and they really are lovely and as always spent far to much and to my surprise no crafting things at all. I have to say I went over to Germany hoping to get some lovely little wooden tree that Ron { Hubby }  and  I brought when we went there in 2001. I did manage to get some and am so happy, They are made out of wood and carved to make the branches. In the picture below shows three of the tree's the one in the middle is an old tree, I have three more like this,
