Christmas is here!

The Scottie dog garland!!

Christmas Cake anyone?
I have had a stinking cold this week...the only things that have cheered me up are...the wonderful Dutchman coming home from work with the most stunning Christmas Tree.... Harry Potter and the half blood prince....Decorating....and walking into Hove library only to be greeted by 20 school children singing Christmas carols.

Ohhh... the smell is divine

Our Star didn't fit on top of the tree, so a berry wreath was a beautiful stand in!

The children brought a tear to my eye, it was so special to browse around picking books to the sweet voices, and the memories which rushed back to me...I surprised myself by remembering the words to those long ago sung carols... I sung with a croak in my voice which has turned to voice is gone...lost...I hope to find it soon.

Twigs with all the ornaments I couldn't fit on the tree...

I hope you my lovely blogging friends have had a better week, and the Christmas spirit is with you!

....Like this cute little slipper made by my Ma!

The gold and glittering vintage waving Santa made it onto the tree

Fish Kiss!! I adore this garish pink lippy fish, she opens in the middle and holds secrets!
Happy Decorating!!
