Christmas time....




I find it very hard to photograph my decorations so this is the best I could do. I am very sad in that I like colour themes and they tend to change each year. Just as well I've got a big loft. In the conservatory its winter white.




We'd recently wallpapered a feature wall in the kitchen so it was a grey/silver, fushia and black scheme.




The lounge this year was ivy, pine cones, gold, brown and a touch of green. The glowing candles were a brilliant present from hubby. They are glass, you turn them over, they light up and can be recharged. We went on holiday once and they had them on the tables outside. Still like my candles though!





OK I'm a sad theme queen....I used to decorate an old people's home at Christmas and I remember a girl doing some crafts with them and then hanging them on the tree! Errrr they don't 'go'....so I put them in the bedrooms. It used to take me ages, two lounges, dinning room and the corridors but everyone loved it. I just hate the putting back bit don't you?

Edit: just realised as I'm sat in front of the tree, hmmm.....I buy wrapping paper to match the colours and everyones pressies get wrapped to match my trees. Apart from Amy's hers get wrapped in Hello Kitty paper and get locked in a suitcase, no peeking now!

Too funny! Well certainly the putting back bit is not nice. I am sure there must have been some elderly person trying to put the little thing they made on the tree!

Wonderful Happy New Year Wishes to you!
