Christmas Decorations

I have now finished decorating for Christmas, although I expect I will still tweak a decoration here and there! :) Here are a few photos:-
In the kitchen - my vintage tree decorated with red and cream wooden hearts, gold and red mini baubles and topped with a gold star. My Dad cut out the hearts for me a couple of years again and I painted them.
The ceramic tree, made by my husband, sits in the middle of the window sill.

Lights and holly tinsel adorn the cabinets.
In the living-room - the Paperwhites aren't going to flower in time for Christmas, because I was late planting them this year, but they will be something to look forward to in the new year. My Nana's vase filled with baubles.
The hall, stairs and landing - foliage decorating my vintage mirror, that is one of pair belonging to my parent's. Hanging from the banister are gingham hearts, stockings and trees that I made a few years ago.
Large green baubles, that match the smaller ones on the tree, hang from the lights.
Yesterday, I wrapped up most of the presents and placed them under the tree. I'm just hoping the the cats don't get too curious! :) I still need to get on with that baking, do a final grocery shop and last minute whizz around the house with the hoover and duster then I am ready for Christmas - I think! :) I'm just keeping my fingers crossed that we don't get any more snow so that my parents can travel down from Norfolk to spent Christmas with us. I expect a lot of people in Britain are hoping the snow stays away until after Christmas. Best wishes to you all, Pj x
