A NEW YEAR'S EVE FAMILY WEDDING, THE LONDON FIREWORKS & GUEST POSTING ..........



We are off to a family New Year's Eve Wedding today. I am so looking forward to it, as it will be lovely to be with all of our family on New Year's Eve. Must try to pace myself with the alcohol.....don't want to embarrass myself in front of everyone !!









..... and, don't forget to watch the London Fireworks that will bring in 2012 ..... for the second year running, our son, Daniel, has mixed all of the music that accompanies them. Last year the fireworks and the music were spectacular.















.... and, finally, please go over to Lou, Boo's and Shoes on New Year's Day. Her beautiful, honest and thought-provoking blog is two years old , and I am guest posting on that day, so please go over and comment and also peruse her lovely blog.... you won't be disappointed.


That just leaves me one more thing to do and that is to wish all of my supportive followers and commenter's a very Happy, Healthy and Peaceful New Year. May 2012 be filled with everything that you wish for.


HAPPY NEW YEAR !!

BY INVITATION ..... SOME ENCHANTED EVENING ..........

Tina of The Enchanted Home has invited the members of By Invitation to a virtual Christmas party. It's big, it's lavish and, our hosts are moving heaven and earth to make it the party of the season.


Of course, this means that I've got to sort out something to wear so, I am telling you this in complete confidence, and you must swear that you won't tell anyone what I'm going to wear,  just in case someone else decides to copy my posh frock !!





 Now, tell me which one I should wear .....






Should it be this snowy white number ? ..........



or, this grey satin creation .....



with matching hat .....





and, lacy, crystal cuffs ? You choose.




Shoes to match .....



Oh, I have got these cuffs ..... which do you think ?




feather and crystal bag .....





make up ..... sorted .....





and, a coat as it could be chilly.
We also need to take a hostess gift .....




My gift is this Caroline Swift Christmas antique finished platinum glass bauble. with glass droplet from an antique chandelier and other tiny treasures .....




packaged beautifully in snowy white paper.

Now all I have to do .....




is collect Mr Home from work, so that I can sober him up and get him ready too !!!! ha ha



Don't forget to go over to Marsha @ Splenderosa for links to all of the other attendees and to see what they will be wearing.
