woodland critters Christmas cookie cutters


Christmas is only 5 weeks away. Eek! In a vain attempt to capture a whiff of Christmas spirit, I revisted last year's photos for inspiration. As part of the Christmas Angel Wings Template photography (you can download here), I came across this photo that includes cookie cutters that we purchased from Ikea

I've always liked the idea of hanging cookies from the tree, but I don't think the Southern Hemisphere would be kind....heat, humidity, flies, ants....more likely to attract bees than good cheer. Previously I've made Ginerbread Houses that would sag at the door frames and quietly implode at the chimney stack. Sweltering on Christmas Day is the norm and Santa is more likely to arrive in Speedos than red velvet

I haven't experienced a white Christmas, perhaps Santa might deliver one, one day?
