Malcolm went off to the flat yesterday, leaving me in peace to decorate the house. Of course, this is our first Christmas here, so I had to decide where all the decorations would go. I took down the quilts that hang round the top of the stairs ........
........ and replaced them with some of the Christmas wallhangings which I have made over the years
it's over twenty years since I made the Christmas tree
of course I have to have an owl or two - this one is hanging in the kitchen
I replaced the chickens which usually sit on top of the kitchen radiator - I took this photo this morning
and this one at teatime
angels to watch over us
the windowsill in the lounge
after the delicious smells in the kitchen when I baked the cake, I was tempted to bake something every day ....... but then I would eat all the goodies and have to spend even more time on the implements of torture to work off the calories! So instead I bought this wonderful candle, which fills the kitchen with delicious smells. If you pop in for a visit, please don't try to eat the biscuits ...... they are actually decorations!
I'll be back on Monday with the final reveal of our decorations. I hope to spend some time in the Attic over the weekend, finishing a baby quilt - another one of Stuart's friends has become a Dad! The forecast is decidedly horrid, although hopefully we won't get any snow. I hope you have a good weekend, love Anne
