..... well I like to kid myself that I am!
The tree is up
Are you an angel or star family??
A collection of sparklies gathered over many years .... last year I started to collect the old glass droplets from vintage chandeliers ..... they make wonderful deccies and refract the tree lights beautifully.
Candy canes and some home made hearts
The fireplace is adorned with home made bunting and orange pomanders and my cheesy singing Santa that the children love. It is not a working fire but with some candles and twinkly lights I get the same effect .... I found the cast iron grate years ago outside a junk shop ... it was covered in white paint but with a lot of elbow grease, paint stripper and wire wool it came up a treat.
Mr & Mrs Snowman are back again .... I made these for my boys which makes them 25 years old now ... they stand in front of my crochet chains
I'm resorting to Christmas cards with bluetak on the door this year with my hand made NOEL hanger
and just to give that authentic snowy winter feel some spray on snowflakes
it's beginning to feel a lot like Christmas !!
