Just a quick post to share with you what a lovely surprise i found when i came home, a fully decked out tree with tinsel, lights and baubles as well as a garland for the stairs. We only had a few decorations as well as items we’ve made and so its was great to come home and find a tree (albeit plastic) ready for santa and his sleigh. The best part of it all is Sue (my mother in law) had found it all in our local charity shops costing a grand total of £17 which i think is pretty much a steal. I can now fill in the gaps with our homemade decorations and now things are feeling certainly festive around these parts. Look out for a post this coming week when i show you how to make a wreath for your front door or in our case above the mantel piece.
