Twiggy tree...


Okay i have to come clean and own up to my love of rusty tin,grungy strips of gingham material,hearts and.....twigs love em...this twiggy lives in our kitchen all year round with strips of material and rusty tin hearts but come the festive season it moves into the hall wrapped in gingham fabric with twiggy hearts,tin hearts,strips of fabric tied on and this year i bought gingerbread dough{from ikea} which i have looked after in the fridge for over a month now,but has now been rolled out,cut,cooked and strung and smells gorgeous hanging on twiggy just out of reach of our mad dog storm who we know is a wee bit partial to gingerbread......
2 years ago i had some gingerbread hearts which i left in the living room while we got the rest of the decorations for the tree,put the decorations on the tree and next was the gingerbread hearts...But no where to be seen...where had all 10 of them gone?????Storm was being unusually quiet and when we got close.....eughhhhhh what a smell!!!!I still can,t believe she ate all 10 of them,she smelt shall we say Festive for days so if your making gingerbread and you have a mad pooch be warned they love gingerbread!!!
