It’s been a wonderful Christmas, so much so that I am not letting go of it easily.
I am still experimenting with decorations, changing stuff round, adding bows and bits.
Actually, I started the Christmas decorations a little late this year, but I think I’ve made up for it. Anyway, here are a few snaps of my efforts.
I am a massive fan of lights and have invested in more than ever before this Christmas. Battery operated string lights have really really improved, which means less wiring, thank heavens.
Oh, and I have quite a deer and stag collection now, thanks not least to gifts from Sharon and our friend Sheena. They are both very familiar with my obsession. My family have tried to stage an intervention – no more stag heads – but I’m still not listening.
Plus, I’ve gone slightly OTT on the faux fur rugs and throws (John Lewis for the rugs – they have a range of tones and shades – the smaller ones are £35, which I think is a bit of a bargain).
My best buy has been two candle surrounds, bought for £7.50 each from Wharfedale Grange Fabulous Festive Shop, which is not far from Harewood Bridge. I also bought my white branches from there, which I have used as a sort of screen from the washing up situation in the kitchen.
Anthropologie sent me this little fairy, which is absolutely adore. And that’s a Jo Malone leather stocking, don’t you know. Ancient, but chic.
That’s all folks. Am now looking forward to New Year.
