I hope you all have finished your christmas shopping, wrapped your presents, stuffed the fridge with giant turkeys and got huge boxes of chocs lined up for the big day! So now you can sit back put your feet up and enjoy the yule tide festivities, at least till Thursday when you have to get up at 7 to get that turkey in the oven!
Thought you might like to have a little peek around my house at some of my decorations. I love my two Santa's, I bought them years ago, they are made mostly out of paper and have graced all our mantle pieces. The little sheep are all hand carved with little metal bells round their necks, there is a dog to look after them and I also have a little wagon, fencing and trees that are made of wood shavings.
I have just finished painting our dining room white and just have the black mantle to paint now (white also). The massive looking tree that you saw Mr Crow struggling with turned out to be the smallest tree we have had in years once I trimmed of all the scrappy branches at the bottom! It is a lovely bushy shape though and the decorations hang nice on it. It really makes it christmas once I start decorating the tree, its something I look forward to for months, christmas can come out of the cupboard once again and old friends get carefully unwrapped from their now slightly yellowing tissue and get hung side by side with new memories made this year. My fairy on the top I only got last year, I saw one just like it in Country Living for well over a £150 more than I paid for mine! Bargain!!
Well I will sign off now, and really want to reach out to you all and give you a christmas hug and wish you all a very happy, loving, jolly time this week with your family and friends.
