......well, the sitting room and dining room!
Always a real tree, adorned with
red and gold, a touch of silver and cut glass
and lots of tiny lights......
.....candles and shiny red baubles on the mantlepiece.
Fairy lights in the hearth
Christmas bunting and decorated twigs on the dresser...
with a charity shop pressed glass dish, loaded with mercury glass baubles from TKMaxx
and a charity shop decanter engraved with tiny little stars.
Just the thing for my homemade sloe gin, and, when that's all gone,
the cherry brandy I made last summer.
Gosh, I have had those twigs for over 22 years!
they have somehow escaped
attack by mice in the attic.
Not so lucky, some years ago, was a faux foliage wreath -
all the (polystyrene) berries had been shredded and eaten.
What did the mice find so tasty?
Purdy dog finds all this decorating lark soooo tiresome....
Purdy - you have no sense of decorum!
