Finally got around to adding some photos of our home from last Sunday...
Little-one came to help us decorate the Christmas tree, with her Mummy and Daddy...
|but it soon became clear that more fun was to be had playing with youngest auntie...|
|And sitting in the box that held all the decorations!...Especially if youngest auntie pushed her around in it!|
|The decorating did get done eventually though... |
Every year I like to buy a new decoration to add to our collection. This year I bought a set of chubby gingham birds from Paperchase.
|There's lots of other home made treasures on the tree too...|
|Most have a folk art/country style to them.|
|The rag dolls all around the kitchen have also been a part of our Christmas décor for many years...|
|These were made by a very talented American lady and were a gift from my hubby when our girls were very young.|
|I love this set of three 'sisters', having three girls myself.|
|And Faith, Hope and Love.|
|So, that's the kitchen all ready for the big day...|
The light has been festooned in fresh ivy and vintage baubles.
Lots more fresh foliage here too.
The new (old!) dresser has been trimmed with off-cuts from the Christmas tree.
|Another heart here!|
|Hand painted signs by the very talented Jennie.|
So, leaving the kitchen now...
Into the back hallway...
|A stocking hangs ready for a little person...|
|And an angel on the back door that I made in 2010.|
|Through to the back living room which is home to the glitter village...|
|Vintage glass baubles...|
|And a mini tree.|
|Onwards to the front hallway...|
|The shelf is suitably dressed...|
|MORE hearts! ;-))|
And into our main living room...
|The bauble wreath received a few repairs this year...but six years(!) down the line, it lives to brighten another festive season.|
Gifts are all made/bought, wrapped and delivered.
Spent a lovely day lunching with a friend...
Three more days at work yet...
Food shopping on the 'to do' list...
But its beginning to look a lot like Christmas!
Hope all is coming together for you too.
