Decorating the house.

Sorry to go missing but what a busy two weeks I've had!!

First we had new gates fitted at the front of the house,

then we celebrated a birthday, so much fun in  a box there were hands dipping in and out all week!!

I've had loads of visitors and we've exchanged christmas  presents, I've iced the cake,  decorated the house  for the" big event" and packed our bags  and had a weekend in York, phew!!

 Snapped  these in a shop window just waiting to be whisked off on a special journey.

Onto the decorations, a few weeks ago I bought some lovely doggie christmas cards from Poppy Treffry that were so nice I sprinkled them with glitter and threaded them onto some ribbon for the hallway,

and this year I bought a new tree for the living room and decided to go "less is more" with the decotations on it, the room looks lovely on a night with candles lit and loads of coloured twinkling lights on the tree,

and I copied someone from last year and tore up a book to make a garland for the wall

with lashings of glitter sprinkled on!!

Off we go up the stairs where the red glass lanterns cast a lovely glow in the dark

and "Apply Dapply" gazes out of the window with her big red bow waiting for a suitor to trot by!!

I' m going to Alexa's nativity play at school this morning so I'd better take a big pack of hankies as I know I'll have a huge lump in my throat and tears pouring down my face, ooooohhhhh I can't wait!!!
