Finally at the weekend, we dragged all the christmas decorations out of their hiding places and the great battle of tree assembling commenced. Now I'd love a real christmas tree but after having a needle imbed itself into my foot and leave me with a nasty infection several years ago, we went over to 'pretend' trees.
We have an absolute beauty - standing nearly 8 foot talling and only just fitting into our sitting room! We have to remember to put the fairy on before the top tier is put into place!
and in the dark with the lights on;
Plus some close ups of some favourite decorations;
This little russian doll is part of a group that were sent to me years ago by a russian pen friend;
My favourite of my CK Stanley's - I love this colour best;
My scary goth fairy;
I also added more decorations to my dresser - a string of gingerbread men and some chilli lights :)
I've still to finish making up my paperchains and there's still a few more baubles left over to hang at the windows but its definately looking festive here now :)
The countdown to christmas is really getting under way - we've a brass concert tomorrow night involving little son and MrVV and there's also a big party at work for all the children and their families - fortunately I've avoided having to wear an elf outfit *phew*.
See you soon
