Well its time to venture down to the garage and sort out all of our christmas decorations…Yes we have bought all of them with us (when we moved) and we have been buying vintage baubles through the year as well…goodness knows where they are all going to go! we have stacks and stacks! and as I have over-filled our little cottage already, it will be a major uphaul!
Above are some of the lovely decorations that we have found just lately…the colours are fabulous, so bright and decadent. The first picture at the top was taken 2 years ago now, when we lived on the Island (
stepford wives) we had a lovely sitting room there – very large though…you could of put a tree anywhere and it would never look crowded….but here at ‘The Meadows’ it is a different story!
I really do not know where I shall be placing the tree…if at all, coz I like everything as it is…its all cosy and if I were to move anything I am frightened that I will loose that feeling…but hey ho…onwards and upwards as my old Nanny Hilda used to say!…Perhaps I will have to compromise and not have one in the sitting room at all…we’ll see eh!;)
I do love decorating with twigs…check them out over the doorway above in our old house…you can hang baubles and clip cards to the branches and it really does look effective.
Also another thing that we do….and I can see my Mum shaking her head in disgrace!LOL! is Card swapping! Oh yes gals….if the card doesn’t match the decor, it gets put in the cupboard and replaced with one that does! one that I have either made myself or saved from years previous! Is that SAD or what! hehehe!
Well it is a bit cheeky…but if peeps don’t know me by now! their card deserves to be put in the cupboard don’t you think! 😀
Is there anyone else out there like me?
Anyway I will keep you all posted on our Christmas decorating progress…Speak soon gals…Love Happy x
