I Understand Its Christmas Next Week
I checked on the calender and yes its true it is Christmas next week, I thought i should try and get into the swing of it, my daughter and grandchildren are coming down at the week end and I am 100% sure the kids are full of Christmas excitement.
I have put the tree up, yes it is one of those gold twiggy ones with fibre optic lights, we have had it for years at least 8 years, no decorating needed just plug in and go, I have stood it in a glass bowl that is filled with gold glass baubles and chocolate coins.
So that's the tree done, easy whats all the fuss about.
I also did this little display of fruit and nuts on the sideboard
Sid the squirrel is a nutcracker and that is a firefighter nutcracker that was bought for hubby some years ago by his parents from when they were in Florida.
I bought the poinsettia today when I was in town.
I have what I consider is a nice collection of Christmas Ornaments, I don't go for the tinsel and glittery garlands, I would rather do a few subtle displays. I will do a few more over the next couple of days.
Many of the ornaments have been bought over 20 years, and a lot of them were bought at German markets, I do take care of what we have and enjoy adding to the collection, I haven't seen anything this year to add to the collection, but I did buy two new Yankee Candles
when I ventured into town today, I do have a weakness for Yankee Candles and these are there two new Christmas Fragrances, The shops were not really busy I picked up a few things I needed and some animal feed that's me done with shopping now until next year.
