I thought I would share with you some Christmasy pictures from around the house.
The speedily decorated tree; found the usual lights didn’t work so used the little lantern LED ones that usually use to go elsewhere (nice shape but blue light, will need to look for better ones next year). The decorations are a mixture of homemade (the felt hearts and raffia covered balls), childhood (the felt stocking made in primary school), found (the reindeer) and fond memories (wooden decorations from Salzberg). Fake spruce garland over the very real inglenook fireplace (more handmade hearts and cinnamon stick decorations). The 5 minute door wreath; take strands of ivy, wrap around metal wreath making hoop, tying on with twine where necessary but mainly just weaving, finish with holly berries tucked in and a gold ribbon (and rain). All completed in the time it took to drink the mulled wine and eat the very delicious Waitrose mince pie!
