A Sparkling Christmas

It's been busy here with a lovely visit from my family over the weekend. Despite the crazy snow storms we made the most of it all and soaked up the Christmas atmosphere in Antwerp and Bruges. Luckily they eventually managed to get home to London on the Eurostar trains safe and sound. So I send you these photos of a Sparkling Antwerp with wishes for a Cosy and Magical Christmas wherever you are.

Christmas Bear Hugs Catherine xx

  5. DAZZLING Christmas glow photos, Catherine! Hope you're having the loveliest time with your family visiting. Must thank you for the sweetest card from you that arrived today--thanks for the holiday cheer & birthday greeting. :o) We have a good many gatherings & get-togethers in the next days, so visiting friends early this week in blogland. I hope to post again before the holiday break :o) Hoping you & yours have the happiest holiday season & wishing you all the best in 2011, my friend! ((HUGS))

  6. It must have been lovely to have your family with you, especially this time of year. Glad to hear they managed to get home safely.

    Thanks for posting the lovely photos of all the twinkliness! It's like armchair travelling!

    Hearty Christmas hugs to you, Sarah x

  7. OMG! This really is a magical place, must come to visit one day!
    So glad you had your family with you, dear Catherine, and can't wait to see your new bear. I'm a little discouraged at the moment because of the move, all the difficulties to rent abroad, and on and on, and I thought that a new bear would have been a nice treat!
    I had a snail mail card here for you too, but I'm so behind in everything, this year. By the way, must go to finish a present off :((
