Shall We start At The Front Door

Not many people bother but I do like a nice wreath on the front door,

this is mine with Mr Robin nestled in the middle.

I managed to hobble upstairs to the snug where I decorated the tree with all my little socks I'd  embroidered in the summer,

some have cheeky little mice in them and others have jingly bells sewn on,

and some bigger stockings with....

'Twas the night before Christmas"
 sewn on them, 
I really enjoyed making  them and it didn't take me long.

I love sticking cloves in oranges, they're on the kitchen windowsill where I can smell them as I wash up...not my favourite pastime!!

And we've celebrated a birthday Mr Lucey loved his card from the dogs,

I've been buying them from  e bay, they're about the same price as a modern card but twice as nice.

This time next week it will be Christmas Eve and excitement will be running high, all the last minute jobs will be getting done and a few sherries will be sipped!!

Lucey xx

What a lovely wreath! really festive and welcoming. I am just making mine this week, late because everything in the woods has been so wet and muddy. What a nice idea to source old fashioned cards, lovely to keep. Betty

Loving what you have done with the socks, and your wreath is gorgeous. Must admit with having moved so near Christmas, certain decs are eluding me this year ah well.
