It's beginning to look
a lot like Christmas..
Oh, I do like a simple Chrimbo.
I plan a little each month, I get ready by looking out for little things reduced in price that I can put in my Christmas cupboard.
I buy a £1 saving stamp each time we go to the shop.
When it comes to decorations, I use things we've had - and added to bit-by-bit - for 20+ years.
Even when we lived in our 2-berth touring caravan we had Chrimbo decorations. Small, yes, but festive.
I love homemade items.
I have a knitted nativity set, bunting, Christmassy cushion covers, small decorations I put on and around the mantlepiece, and indoor sparkly lights that run on batteries.
Last year we bought an artificial Christmas tree, reduced in January 2021. It is about 6ft tall, and the branches can be bent around to fit particular places.
Baubles have been collected or homemade, and added to little-by-little.
I love to see pictures in magazines or on the TV of decorated houses, BUT my house doesn't have to look like that. Ha, ha I'm not magazine-perfect either!
I love putting my tablecloth on, setting the table, lighting scented candles.
That makes us happy.
I might try to make a gingerbread house from cardboard and decorate it with buttons and beads glued on...if I do, I'll post a picture on here.
I'm currently completing knitting a Harry Potter cardigan for granddaughter, and want to crochet a dragon as a gift.
What do you do for decorations?
