No Pressure Over Cappucino

What I really should have done today is doing my homework, but instead I have played the piano, make some Christmas presents and drunk a lot of tea and coffee. It has been a wonderful day.
My "thing" this year is to make the presents as personal as possible, and to add a personal twist to them. It's actually quite cosy to knit, crochet, draw and write personal cards. I love it.

My french class have started planning til trip to Paris. It's an amazing feeling! We are planning a trip to Versailles, to different churches, museums, restaurants and important places in Paris. And I will definitely go to Montmartre, my favourite place in Paris. The atmosphere there is just fabulous and magical. I like the bohemian and artistic history of the place, and the old and narrow streets. It's just unbelievable.

The adorable blogger, Q's daydream, have given me this award. Thank you! I really recommend checking her blog out. Her outfits are amazing.

Six things that make me happy.
1 Drinking a cup of tea while it rains outside
2 Being hours in small vintage shops, just to get inspiration
3 Wearing berets - I have about six of them
4 Everything which is romantic
5 Reading in old books
6 Learning Italian
I would like to pass this award to.

and i love that idea about making the personal gifts.
i want to do that loats. but wanted to treat mother to lots of things as she can't buy herself many things. i bought her loads, then i felt bad and bought extra presents for everyone else too.

i do that for everyone's birthdays so it's not too bad that i'm wasting my only skill this christmas.
oh but mother and i will bake christmas treats and make decorations. so maybe it's not bad after all.

A trip to paris!!! How wonderful that will be!! I have never been, but will do one day, and when I do I will remember to visit montmarte, as it sounds just perfect!!

I am also making christmas presents this year, and really enjoy doing it!! I worry and worry that people wont like them, and then seeing their happy, laughing faces as they open the gifts is just the best feeling!!

I am also going to do your idea about the hats on the eggs- just lovely!! I will probably make a littl project out of it too, and decorate the eggs and draw faces on them and put the hats them and take pictures :) I can then post thm on my blog for all to see!!! and make sure I mention you of course :)
