Christmas Decor Part 2

This morning saw us driving across a frosty moor to a hospital appointment for physio on my shoulder.  The drive wasn't as bad as anticipated, it looked really icy but got better as time went by.  The physio was bearable and she has shown me some exercises to do at home on a daily basis.  I have to see her again next week prior to our travels.  I am still hoping that I will get the injections before I go, time will tell.  The wait is due to needing them done at the same time as a scan.

On a brighter note, the Christmas decor has once again brought back some wonderful memories of Christmas's past.  We have sorted through lots of boxes and now have the larger items ready to pass on to our daughters.  Spreading the memories around.

The porch has had a simple quilt thrown(creatively placed) over the chair and a few artistic touches to make it look Wintery.







The bedroom has a small tree in the window and is resplendent in all its red glory.  Bringing some much needed colour into the dreary days of Winter.




Looking a little top heavy with the enormous topper from a much larger tree last year but cheerful in its own way.  There are some treasured baubles amidst the gaiety of the ribbons and poinsettias.







Not one of my best displays I will be honest but it has given us the opportunity to sort all things Christmas out and spread the cheer.  Our little cottage is not big enough or suitable for some of the oversized finery from our previous home.  

We haven't bothered with the bedding either just a top eiderdown and pillowcases.



Once again I do thank you for visit, your comments and emails.  I must also thank and welcome a new follower.  I do hope you enjoy my little adventures through life.

See you soon.

  13. I like the idea of a small tree in the bedroom. We will put up a real tree in the living room, so perhaps an artificial one in the bedroom would be fun. I hope your shoulder soon improves. It's all looking festive at your place.

  26. The sharing of the downsizing process can be so satisfying to both giver and receiver. Isn't amazing to realize how much stuff we can gather over time? You and Gerard are in my prayers. xx
