It's The Most Wonderful Time Of The Year

After only realising that it is in fact Christmas NEXT WEEK...  

(yup, I was shocked too). I figured it was about time that I posted all the bits and bobs I've been putting up lately, in an attempt at feeling festive.

I would normally save the best until last, but I think this beautiful, Moyses Stevens Seasonal Wreath from Harrods* is definitely worth shouting about. I've never owned a wreath before but I'm not sure I can go another Christmas without one... It's simply the prettiest decoration I've ever owned and yes, that is real fruit on it. And yes, the cinnamon sticks smell heavenly. And yes, it basically smells like mulled wine heaven. 

It is possibly all a Christmas lover could ever want, wrapped up into a lovely wreath. I couldn't love it more. I even put it on the coffee table for a while before I put it up, just so that I could look at it longer. It's so well made and instantly made our living room feel more festive. Although it is suitable to go both indoors and out, I just prefer to hang it on the wall, rather than on our door! 

As for our other decorations (which, kind of fail in comparison), I thought this year I would make some of my own baubles. I always like to buy a special tree decoration as a keepsake for the year, but I couldn't find any that I really loved. So I decide to buy a pack of bauble shells, print some photographs of our little pets and make my own! It was actually surprisingly easy and I think they look so cute. I even made one for my mum & sister of their dogs, too, which they loved. 

Even Herbert has been getting in on the Christmassy action, after he received his very generous parcel from Santa (or, Pets at Home) the other week. We caught him snuggling up to his crinkly robin on 'hog cam' - a night vision camera that we have stuck in his house - which made for some very amusing viewing the next morning! I'll have to put his antics on Youtube someday...

And of course, I've been enjoying a mince pie, or five, and all in all, I'm just super excited for next Thursday... I think I'll be attempting to cook Christmas dinner again, which is always eventful and panic shopping & wrapping to my hearts content over the next few days.
