It's been a busy day. I have trawled around every shop in our town looking for size 2 wellies for Chatterbox. Honestly, just before I'm about to lose the will to live, the very last shop we look in and I find some. Pirate wellies no less! Captain Jack Sparrow would be proud of them! :) It was exhausting. Hubs had a fun time at home fitting a light unit in the kitchen that involved pulling up carpet in Chatterbox's room, pulling up floorboards, and some electrical fiddling. We've checked the smoke detectors work just in case!! ;)

We've had a lovely evening, mulled wine and mince pies. Very aromatic.

Here are some of our Christmas decorations. Sorry for the blurry rather orange photos but we have a small camera and a very small living room! Apologies over...I love Christmas.

A bit blurry and orange, but you get the picture. :)

You might just be able to make out in front of the television right in the centre is a tiny tiny nativity scene. Lol, I bought that off eBay last year and I expected a full size nativity. I was rather surprised when it came through the post - to say the least. Always read the description, photos can be deceiving! :) Hub's feet and the X-factor on TV can also be admired! :)

Our nativity, you might notice the white dove lying in front of the crib. Lol it's fallen off the top of the stable and I didn't notice until after I'd taken the picture.

For some reason this is the only picture that didn't come out orange!

Through the mirror which reflects the window which in turn reflects the Christmas tree.

I love my tree, its design reminds me of the White Tree of Gondor


  1. Your decorations are *lovely*, so cosy and homey and Christmasy. (o:

  2. Christmas is a great time of the year. It is a time for decorations of all sorts big and little. I have two manger scenes -one is white ceramic and the other has a barn,Mary and Joseph,three kings,animals and two men. The most important pieces are The Babe and an angel. I have a fiber optic small tree and a little decorated ceramic tree. And a few other decorations.
    They go up quickly and come down quickly. I have gotten too many decorations and can't put them all out.
    Old age will do that to you.
    You did a beautiful job with yours.

  3. It looks lovely and cosy with the fire and all the lights. Shame about the miniature nativity. Love the white tree of Gondor!

  4. AQGL - thank you! x

    Joyce - thank you. I love lots of decorations, but we haven't a great deal of room. I'm happy with what I have though. :)

    Bookworm - I did laugh about the nativity, I should have wondered as it was very cheap! I love my tree, it would be good if it were white. :)

  5. I love Christmas too, and Christmas deocrations! Your decorations are so pretty...everything looks so lovely and cozy. Thank you so much for sharing them! :)

  6. My camera keeps doing the orange thing too!
    It adds to the general cosiness of things
    Love your fallen dove [is this the Holy Spirit being present in the stable??]

  7. Yes the dove is to represent the Holy Spirit, it's supposed to be on top of the stable not lying on the floor lol.

  8. I like the Gondorish tree...

    BTW I find that I need to not only read the description but use a ruler to get a real visual of size...
