Secrets,Stockings and Santa....


If it's too early for Christmas for you then don't read on!!


 This is my lovely little patchwork bear called Adventina sitting on a shelf with her friends.They have been very excited this week as there has been lots of festive preparations going on.


I am doing a secret santa and a stocking swap so I have been busy reading the blogs of the ladies that I am paired with and picking out some little things that I think they may like, I have selected the goodies now and have photographed their parcels but obviously we can't see them before they do!!
But it has really got me in the festive mood and as I am having a Christmas coffee morning soon I thought that I should set about preparing for it!
As the cake and mincemeat are all sitting in the pantry ready I thought I should turn my attention to the surroundings and get things looking festive...


 
 A Cosy Corner....


 
Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree....


 
Warm as Toast...


 
  All Done...


Now onto making sure that the Christmas Cupboard is ready too....
Warm Wishes for a Wonderful Week,

Oh I'm so pleased you have put up your decorations! I'm positively itching to put mine up!
I keep thinking it's too early but you have conviced me otherwise :)

Lots of Love

Bonjour !
Tout cela est vraiment superbe !
I love Xmas' times ! Every year I buy the Xmas tree the 1srt of December. It's so nice to live in a house with all Xmas' decorations.
Every year I cross my fingers and make a wish "snow for Xmas day please" but no ... no snow ...
Have a nice day ++

Yes, wish together. In French we say "deux chances valent mieux qu'une" lol.
I think you're impatient to celebrate your birthady and Xmas decorations !
At the moment I'm making all my Xmas cards, a nice hobby for me.
Have a nice Sunday ! xx

Hi Cally - have just found your blog and enjoyed reading your posts and looking at your lovely photos. It's so nice to find a fellow South Devon blogger - there aren't very many of us around, I don't think! I'll be back to visit again soon. Best wishes - Caroline x
