The tree goes up

was a bit of a struggle and only achieved with help from the hubster and my best friend Mr.Paracetamol . But it's up.......sorry I am not the perfect blogger and hid the extension lead! there is still a huge box of baubles that I have left in the attic to go on it...but I might leave it as it is this year...with just the glass vintage baubles on it ......needs must!...AND.....I still have my red and gold dining room tree to put up with HUNDREDS of baubles!

December 1st,,,crack out the tea cup!

 Went for an autumnal walk with a good friend the colours were amazing!!
 We found berries in lots of different hues...we picked a few and made up a little bouquet as we walked around..
 I bought this little 50p pine cone Christmas tree on a button at a local craft fair and I really, really, lobes it sooooooo much x little things please small minds lol x It's perfect for cheering up my seasonal tea trays.
 As it's the first of the month  cracked out the Royal Albert  December Trio and for good measure added one of my Christmas tree knives.
 I am so excited...it's the build up to my most favourite time of the year.
 I also cracked out one of my Christmas spoons bought from MoreTvicar
 Isn't my lickel Christmas tree wonderful....
 I so enjoy the run up to the festive period....I spring clean the house, ready to get down the boxes and boxes of Christmas things.....
 We will probably put the tree up next weekend....
I had some of my homemade Mulled Wine jam...Christmas on toast ! and I served  in a Poinsettia shot glass x Are you all getting excited to x x
