Christmas Markets & Wrapping

I had a lovely day out in Birmingham on tuesday. We went after seeing the hairy bikers show on tv, they visited the German Christmas Market there and made it look fab! Which it was, and especially the fire punch i could drink that all day in winter. Its amazing they have a cone of sugar over a copper vat full of red wine and spices, they pour rum over the sugar and set fire to it...its so delicious.There were some lovely stalls and we tried lots of german food, Rio especially liked the mushrooms in garlic sauce. Its a shame i didn't have the camera. It helped get me in the Christmas spirit, the hustle and bustle of a big city, the beautiful Christmas lights and just being out on a dark winters night drinking mulled wine and fire punch surrounded by fantastic craft stalls and happy shoppers!!

I also had to visit Selfridges where i purchased quite a lot from paperchase : ) i have been wrapping my pressies in some great recycled paper i got from there.
I love it its so perfect, i have been making little tags too, by cutting squares of the paper and sticking them on some matching card then attatching them with some kraft paper string...they look great!!
Next year i am going to Germany for the Christmas markets.....fingers crossed!
