A little Christmas Frivolity for you...

Happy Monday, folks! Did you put up your Christmas tree over the weekend? We bravely did -- though I only have about 8 decorations on mine and they are all only on the top couple of branches! Elliott and Fern broke 3 glass baubles (you know, the handblown ones I picked up on my travels through Europe -- easily replaceable NOT) before I had a chance to remove them from the kitchen table. They were in a box, but that didn't stop them. I unpacked the felt and plastic ones only and the rest are still in boxes on the kitchen table because I can't bring myself to pack them away! And to think it was only a few years ago my tree was all silver and clear glass decorations only -- these days I have techno, multicoloured LED lights blinking merrily and I wouldn't have it any other way!

This morning I got up to discover Elliott wrapped in lights from the Christmas tree... oooops.

Anyway, 8 decorations or not, the tree is UP and that's good enough for me!

We took the kids to get their Santa photo yesterday. Elliott wore this bow- tie, (which coincidently was featured on the front page of Etsy on Friday and made me dance with joy - front page of Etsy, are you kidding me?!):

... and Ferny wore this top, with a matching polka dot skirt:

... and they both looked tres adorable, even if I DO say so myself!

The wreath is on the door and it MUST be Christmas, because I am literally surrounded by thousands of pieces of torn fabric at the moment filling wreath orders... I had to withdraw the wreath from my stores because I simply could not fill any more! Here's the latest to materialise from my studio (which, by the way is now complete complete complete and is completely rocking my world -- reveal to come very very shortly, I promise!!) Next year I'll start making those wreaths in September!

    Your Christmas decorating sounds a little like mine. We did ours today and I've got a post ready to go, with the good and the not-so-good moments. Ahh, I guess it's ALL good to look back on :o)
