Well today I thought, come on put out some decorations (I had not even bothered to buy a tree!) and went up to the orchard and chopped off a few of the old apple tree branches that are covered in lichen, stuck them in a pot and got going in a very half hearted way. Then I thought why not put some fairy lights on them and delved into the tangled mess of wire and lights in my christmas bag. As I pulled them out of the bag and they clacked together the smell and noise of them brought on a rush of joyous spirit, yipee at last I feel like christmas, who would have thought something so simple would spark me off! So now I am madly decorating the house before its too late.
I had this little doll in a box and who would have thought she would look so cute on the back of a little old bear.
Put some of my collection of toy animals on the tiny shop I bought from Liz in the spare room.
A row of little dollies, now on sale in The Sea Garden.
