Feeling festive in London. My parents have 35 Christmas Russian dolls. I spy a Vernon Ward. Christmas cake and festive bells, a gift from Laura Ashley. Christmas 1974 (my first Christmas card from my parents). An adorable Ludlow deli. Arriving in deepest darkest Herefordshire. Another shot of my parent’s enchanting collection, I think they’re going to need a bigger mantle piece. Oh London you photogenic thing!
A beautiful door and wreath in Ludlow. The floral boots enjoyed the sunshine and crunchy grass on the Bromyard Downs. A Christmassy fawn Friday. The prettiest tea shop I ever did see. I’d love a Babycham! Cinnamon sticks and dried scented oranges at the Oxford Christmas Market. Have yourself a very kitsch Christmas. I’ll take one of each, please. Keeping things simple.
Oxford is magical at Christmas. I’m dreaming of a white Christmas. A frosty visit to my Grandparent’s old house (built in 1590), I stayed there many times as a child. Christmas cheer in Henley-on-Thames. Just look at that kitsch face! A lovely wreath with ribbon, cinnamon sticks, lavender and pine cones. Cute bike + colourful graffiti = a very happy Candy Pop. Beautiful Herefordshire from the Bromyard Downs. A peaceful Monday in Oxford.
My pink house detector never fails me. They always make me smile. Weekend treats. Celebrating the 2nd week of the Christmas holiday with a family trip to Ludlow. A sweet Christmas card from Mollie Makes. Spring is just around the corner. A few of my favourite things. A Christmas hamper of floral goodness from Cath Kidston. Catching up with family in Ledbury.
When Christmas arrived at Candy Pop HQ. No snow in Herefordshire. Festive things of beauty. A vintage Christmas wish to you all. Another day, another wreath. My Mum’s pink Christmas tree is a sight to behold. Relaxing with a cuppa and 91 magazine. One of my favourite London streets on a very cold day. A quiet New Year’s Eve at home.
I had a truly wonderful year. Each month brought new details and colours, and my snapshot posts helped me to appreciate everything I’d seen. Thank you for following my journey.
I’ll see you over on Instagram!
