The Christmas decorations are up

Over the weekend we put up our Christmas decorations.  I wanted to buy a growing Christmas tree in a pot, so we could put it in the garden afterwards, but the only ones they had were tiny and we wanted a 5 foot tree, so we bought a cut one.  I decorated it with gold and red baubles.


Then I looked to the windows to hang some more baubles.  I saw this is Country Living magazine, but of course mine don’t look like the ones they had in their picture!!


You can see the reindeer antlers over the globe lamp.  I shall be wearing those on Wednesday when we do Christmas lunch for the old folk at the Golden Age Club!!

I have some really big baubles that we hang from the beam in the living room.


Then there are the icicle lights across the beam in the inglenook fireplace.  They were given to us by our ex next door neighbours where we used to live, and they fit just right here.


You see Neil has hung up his Xmas stocking in anticipation.  We also have lights all round the inside front door which can be seen from the outside, so it all looks jolly festive.  These are the lights and decorations across the mantlepiece in the lounge.


Cards all written and posted, decorations up, much of the shopping done, so now we are nearly ready for Christmas.

    You are well ahead! I especially like the baubles in the window. What about your stocking?
