Nuts and Oranges - Folksy Friday

As its getting progressively closer to the festive season have been thinking back to childhood stories of the Christmases my parents and grandparents experienced. And one thing that always stuck in my mind was the "stocking with nuts and oranges" - oranges being a real treat back then... So with the help of some Folksters, I've based my blog post today on the theme of "nuts and oranges" and fortunately they think just as creatively as I do...

From me is a toffee - could be brazil nut flavour :-) - duffle bag that Santa could put all the nuts and oranges in:
