It’s Beginning to Look a Lot Like Christmas…..

So having tidied up after they all left for work this morning, I can now show you our tree for this year!

Its a lovely tree this year very full.  We always get it from the garden centre in our village where by best friend, Jayne, her son works there.

We have moved the sitting room furniture around a little bit and my rocking chair is now in front of the tree.

As you can see the sofas have moved a little bit.

My Mom’s Santa Claus from her tree when she was a little girl so this is now over eighty years old, so is always packed away very carefully!

This is my Fortunum & Mason teapot ornament I got last year.

This ornament is hand painted glass and DH and I bought it when we went to Vienna for our 15th Wedding Anniversary in November 2003.

My Christmas Quilt I made last year.

The bookcases with the Christmas lights on.  I love these.

The other bookcases and the drinks table which has also been moved for Christmas!

These are the little felt mice I bought last year.  I just think they are so cute.

This is our fireplace.  I had some spare lights and put them in the big lantern by the fire.

Our lights on the stairs which we do every year. 

My Dining Room Dresser dressed for Christmas! Say that phrase a few times!!!!!

Our door into the garden.

A new buy from last year which the Christmas napkins are stored in.

This is our garden today, its raining again!

This is what happens when your 21 and 25 year old are at home isolating!!!  They got the train board out and re-did all the track and got all the trains out!  Girlfriend helped.

As you may be able to see, it is sat on top of my dining table!  I have told them that it can stay out until Christmas Eve when it will need to be moved!  That means it will probably end up in our bedroom!  However it is lovely to see the trains running again. 

This is how the board used to look when they were small.

December 16th

On December 16th 1773 American rebels dressed as Indians and threw 342 chests of tea into Boston Harbour thus paving the way for the American Revolution.

Famous people born on this day were Ludwig van Beethoven, Jane Austen and ZZ Top star Billy Gibbons who is 66 today!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  Treacle will be here tomorrow with The Wednesday Wag! I know it is all upside down at the moment  🙂

Hugs & Love, Susie xxxx

    Your home looks so pretty decorated for Christmas and your tree is gorgeous with all of your special ornies. Your little felt mice are so cute and I love the lite staircase. We don’t have stairs here – only the ones going down to the basement. Love the trains! Your table behind the rocking chair in the 2nd pic looks like my kitchen table if you raise the leafs/leaves. Love your beautifully decorated door going out into your garden. How I wish that we could send you snow. Ours is set to begin around 4pm.

    Your home looks so beautiful all dressed for Christmas!!! I love your unique ornaments and your mom’s Santa!!! You got new drapes!! I remember plaid ones with reds and tans! Looks great! Love the trains! The overpass for pedestrians reminds me of England – I had never seen anything like that before going there. Here on my side of the USA, trains are generally for freight with only Amtrak for people and those come through once a day. I so enjoyed riding the different trains in England – thanks for helping me remember those fun times!
