The photo above is one of my Christmas tree which is set up in the corner of my lounge. I just love to sit and watch films with just the little fairy lights on. It is decked in red and gold fruit (not real though) with berries and ivy. I also have some little fat gold robins on it (there is one in the centre of the photo) and perched right on top of the tree is the white dove of peace as you can see in the picture below. As some of you know, I have a cat called Bob and do you know that in all these years he hasn't so much as taken a bauble off the tree! He is soooo good!
I hang wreaths on the doors and hang small stockings from the door knobs. It really does cheer the place up on these short winter days and long nights. Bob has his own stocking and I hang it above his bed with some Christmas treats in it for him. I also decorate the mantel piece and you can just see it past the tree in the picture below.
I also use greenery up the stair bannister which you can see in the last photo. I love the traditional look of the foliage and berries.
Anyway, this year I am going away to Spain for Christmas to stay with friends in a place called Calpe near Alicante so I wanted to wish you all a Very Merry Christmas or Happy Holiday to those who do not celebrate it before I go, though hopefully I will have access to a compter while I'm away. I am taking my camera with me so I will be sure to take some pictures while I am out there and share them with you when I come back.
