Christmas has arrived at Perfect Little World, at last

I put up the lounge tree a couple of weeks ago and took photos, but never seemed to have time to upload them or write this post. Its kinda dark but gives a flavour.

The mantlepiece had some attention too. I had a hideous garland in the garage with horrible shiny burgundy fruit. I pulled off the fruit and some other garish embellishments I did not like then added the nice apples( think there is another in the loft for that gap when I put the boxes back) and some cinnamon sticks and a couple of mini flower pots. I do like a bit of thrifty crafting. The festive duck was purchased last year and is destined to become a favourite.
Our tree skirt we always use is very similar to the advent calender from the last post in style and took me absolutely hours to sew and stitch sequins onto but I declared it to be too bright and `just not right` for this years ensemble so it was replaced with this one which only took me a touch over an hour. I think they might just have to be recreated for the shop next year. Wish I had thought of it earlier, doh!  I will always keep the old one as it has very happy memories. Who knows, I may go bright again one day.

These tealight houses are somewhat heirlooms, I have had them years. It just wouldn`t be Christmas without them on the kitchen windowsill. Sorry about the marigolds! OOPs

Even the loo did not escape, meet frosty and friend.

 Off to take pictures now of the dining room tree for the next post to bore you with. It will be nice for me to look back on when I am old so you will just have to put up with it.
