Well here we are again ! Yesterday we put up our decorations. We hauled this lot out of a damp and dirty shed yesterday.
Yes we do have a lot of decorations! We had to get rid of our old tree, it was over 7 feet tall and just as wide because of a move into a tiny cottage :( Because of a serious attack of financial unhappiness we opted for a tree that cost a tenner ! By the way the ball didnt come with it.
We only have one space we can put it so it had to be "thin". I got to work and managed to get nearly all of the decorations onto it without it falling over under the weight. We actually anchored the tree to the ceiling.
By this time the rug was covered in glitter flakes (a bugger to get off)
Fortunately we have quite a bit of shelf space so of course I had to fill every gap.
When renovating the cottage we bought a cast iron fireplace (it is a real fire) so another excuse to fill it full of festive cheer.
And a little tradition is to clip Garfield onto a curtain !
We also managed to create a window display but no photo's as yet
