Christmas Trimmings

Christmas time is upon us and it's time to deck the halls at our little cottage.

The old clock is wearing her crown of pine cones and berries...

I brought a miniature potted rose home from town ..


In a Christmas velvet cranberry that will be planted in the cottage garden after it has finished flowering..


A sweet little angel that an elderly lady crocheted for me many years ago,my regular readers may remember she knitted me a little Easter chick for my Easter tree...it's lovely to find such treasures with meaning amongst the decorations at this time of year...


All together on the kitchen window ledge,i moved the lace curtain up to the top of the window so the lights and baubles can be seen from the garden when visitors come to the kitchen door...


Outside the window our porch and garden arch are twinkling into the night...


Back inside snow babies,swans and Victorian style baubles have been hung on the Christmas tree..
Along with rose covered Santa's carried carefully home from New York many moons ago,tiny cottage glass baubles and lace and glitter covered baubles made and sent by a friend a few years ago...


The floors have been painted with fresh coats of paint for a  White Christmas ...

All is calm all is bright

We just need  Steve to break up for Christmas on Friday and then the fire will be roaring and it will be time for a glass of bubbly by candle light.

Tomorrow I am baking mince pies and checking I have everything on my shopping list for a last little trip down to town.

I would like to take a moment to wish you all a very Merry Christmas from our cottage to yours and thank you for all your kind words throughout the year.

Will you join me next time for more tales and goings on from Shingle Cottage?
