Here they are, the pictures of our Christmas Home – I’ll talk you through them as we go…we have moved furniture and everything…! It was difficult to take the pictures though, as the lights weren’t too good….and when It was time for me to take them, it was always approaching dusk….but here goes…
Above, this picture is by the front door….Red teddy is guarding the Vintage Christmas balls!
This is a picture at the top of our first level of stairs – I decorated this tree….(must put some more on the bottom!) The picture is a bit dark – but it is soo lovely and really gets you in the mood….for the front room!…Look at the vintage christmas stocking behind it that fred bought on ebay.This is our Main Christmas tree, Yes girls it upside down, we bought it in Germany 2 years ago, but they have only just arrived in England this year (John Lewis)….its great if you don’t have alot of space, but you have to have balls on string hanging down otherwise it just doesn’t work!….And heres my favourite hook rack – pimped up a little!…..Lexicon cards always come in handy you know. It pays to have a couple of sets, so you can actually display a few words.
Look at Santa….another Ebay purchase.
We moved the table over to the other side and it works really well so much more light over there….and you can’t have too many candy canes at Christmas can you. Yes we are very organised this year, we have bought nearly all of our christmas presents and have already wrapped them up! thats always my job….and I have gone a bit to town with the ribbon! I love this area…its just above the TV actually, we used to have a TV in a cupboard, it was lovely as you can just shut the door and pretend you havn’t got one, but it was so small and as both our eyes are deteriorating we had to get a larger one, but we have decorated around it….what we need to do is make a large cover for it….I’ll have to ask Yvonne at Yvestown as she recently sent us some material for freds quilt and also a lovely sewing machine cover – thankyou Yvonne :).
This is as you look through into the dining room from the living room…..More lexicon cards…..remember to pick them up through the summer bootfairs!This is a picture of the Kitchen, Fred has put a lovely little hall table at the end under the window and it works really well for us…..I had better end here, don’t want to bore you all – hope you like this insight into the family christmas home, fred has put up most of the decorations, as I have been busy (see previous post!) I think he has done a really good job – well done freddy!
Luv Happy xx
