Three Weeks to Go...

Christmas is approaching quickly. The weekends are filled with Christmas markets. It's really amazing how many markets a place as small as Arran can produce! I'm particularly looking forward to the one in Brodick Castle. Every year two weeks before Christmas, they organise a Victorian day in the castle. The rooms will be inhabited by people in Victorian costumes. The 'duchess' will lie in her four poster bed with a maid serving her drinks. The 'Duke' will welcome the visitors. There are all kind of activities going on: Baking in the kitchen, playing with original toys, face painting, games, music in the drawing room and, of course, a Christmas Market. There's the scent of mulled wine in the air and everything is nicely decorated. Just the right thing to get into the festive mood...

Up to then, I will be still producing bracelets, pendants and necklaces. And of course, trying to find and make presents for the family. Nosing around on etsy, I found a lot of lovely gifts for children:
