Christmas time

January 2nd, 2009

I hope you all had a fantastic Christmas and a very festive holiday all round! I had a super Christmas (Matilda had the time of her life with wrapping paper and ribbons too) and then spent a few days hanging out in front of the telly, eating satsumas and reading books. Now that it’s officially the new year, I’m getting down to work. I’ve had a major pre-NYE clearout of my room and wardrobe, bought a new 2009 planner and made many to-do lists. No resolutions though!

  6. Catherine says:

    I cannot get over how ADORABLE Matilda is. I love flat-faced creatures!

    I love your ornaments~ I bought a white tree this year but I haven’t had the opportunity to buy many ornaments. Still, I love Christmas decorations!


  7. kakna says:

    I really love your pictures, I think I didn’t even tell you last time you posted a serie- it was the ones from Moscow… wow
    Is the snowflake in the chocolate real or is it photoshopped??

  10. Laura says:

    Matilda is such a cutie, she reminds me of my long-haired (very shed-happy) cats. I hope she’s well now! As always I love your beautiful photos, although they did remind me of my disappointment at the loss of the toffee penny from Roses :(


  11. Emilie says:

    awh. i love your christmas pictures.


  12. Becca says:

    Your photos are wonderful! We have some of the exact same decorations, my parents bought them in Harrods in the late 60’s!


  13. annah says:

    you may be doing illustration, but you really could make a living from photography.



  14. Lil says:

    I’m loving the one of the Queens Speech. A+.
    Happy New Year, the photos are lovely Kris.


  16. menchie says:

    Does your pre-NYE wardrobe clear-out mean you’ll be selling more stuff on ebay? =)


  17. Melanie says:

    I would love a red sparkly bird for my Christmas tree, I shall fashion one for next year..


  18. sofia says:

  19. sarai says:

  21. aishah says:

    welcome back! thank you,your pictures made my day!


  22. Mimi says:

    Ah we have that ikea light ring in my house, I love it! We put ornaments on ours though, like so:

    Your photos are so gorgeous.


  23. Lauren says:

    I ALWAYS love your Christmas photos/posts. I’ve been following them since you were on livejournal and your photos are always amazing! Matilda is beautiful, and I love the photo of the hot chocolate. The crown on the inside of the mug is absolutely gorgeous (I’ve always wanted a mug like that) and the snowflake is so pretty! Your tree is very beautiful, and I also love Christmas ornaments. I’m not on my own yet, so I don’t have my own tree (though I suppose I could have had one at my apartment at school, but I never had the time), but I’ve bought several pretty ornaments for myself already :)


  24. Georgina says:

    Aww yay! I’ve been checking back here often to see when you’d post your Chrisymassy photos!

    Matilda is adorable, your tree is lovely. Your Christmas photos always remind me of a fairytale Christmas, where everything is perfect and shiny and wonderful. It makes me happy just looking at them. :)


  25. Anna says:

    These photos are so, so beautiful! Your Christmas, as people have said, just looks absolutely perfect! Shiny and wonderful :) Matilda is such a wonderful kitty and I’m horribly jealous! Did you get any nice presents? :D

    If you don’t mind my asking — I’ve been a follower of your photographs (especially your Christmas ones!) for a year or so now, and I was wondering what happened to the beautiful dollhouse you were making last year? I would love to see it again!

    I hope 2009 is great for you! :)


  26. nicola says:

    yay! happy now :)


  27. rubi says:

    i love it all, especially the baby’s breath.


  28. Kim says:

    Gosh, talk about your fairy tale Christmases! Everything is so white and clean and beautiful!

    What exactly is cat grass? I would assume it’s similar to catnip, though they don’t look alike at all. Matilda’s getting big!


  29. Michelle says:

    Your Christmas tree is gorgeous! And so is your cat!


  30. *Gasp!* Our Christmas trees look like sisters! Look!

    Also, we both have flat-faced persians. :) I actually have two, one doll-faced, and one extreme-faced. :)

    Love your blog. xo


  31. Misha says:

    Oh dear, we used to have exactly the same cat cage, but about 10 years ago. The cat was totally terrified by it.


  32. I love your site and photos…your hair totally rocks!!



  33. hanna says:

    totally beside the point here, but i couldn’t help but noticing in the picture with the telly on it, that you have mariskooli’s on the windowsill! and exactly the same colour as i do have, on the windowsill also. greetings from finland!

    also, love your christmastree and cat. i’m such a cat person.
