The decorations are up...

I've spent the last few days doing what I do best, decorating the house for christmas!! I got the pattern for the paper trees from the internet,

and this "forest" is from ikea.

We won the Jamie Oliver candle  in a raffle and it smells of oranges and spices,and I couldn't use an ordinary box of matches when these are so pretty could I?

The  mistletoe is  from aspen and brown and I threaded some pretty ribbon through the top and pegged a few small cards to it.

reindeer stables this way!

"dasher and dancer and prancer and vixen"

"comet and cupid and donner and blitzen"

I have a love of reindeer and at the last count there was 36, I have furry ones, glass, wooden, tin, night lights cardboard and painted stones, I just can't resist them.

and finally the tree with its branches full of treasured baubles that I've collected over the years.

Bye for now
