Christmas has arrived at Shoestring Cottage.
Lola the cat is fascinated by the tree but has thus far only chewed the lower branches a bit. Let’s hope she doesn’t decide to climb it whilst we aren’t looking. I can see a few ‘timberrrrrr’ moments!
I have never spent much money on the decorations. I just buy a few cheapie bits every now and again and stick to a red and gold theme. I would like to change this to white and silver as I think it would go better with the duck egg blue in the sitting room, but I am not so bothered that I am prepared to spend lots of money doing it. If I see anything appropriate in the January sales then I will pick them up if they are cheap enough. The tree I have had for about 10 years so it has been really good value. I don’t have space for a big one so that is another reason to stick with it rather than spend lots on a real one each year.
If I get the chance to cut some holly and mistletoe at some point I will, but if not that’s it for Shoestring Cottage decorations. I still haven’t written my cards yet….really must get on and do that!!
