Christmas? Already?

Wow, my very first proper outfit post in a very long time!! Albeit, it is an outfit shot from the Honeymoon - ah well (I do have some from last week actually, but I need to get them off the camera first!).

Now that all the wedding madness is over (thank you so much for all of your lovely comments too by the way!), we have gone full tilt into Christmas madness! I can't believe its Christmas day on Saturday - where on earth has this year gone? David and I plan to while away the day eating, opening presents, perhaps finding a secluded little beach somewhere and just relaxing - our first Christmas as husband and wife.


To celebrate Christmas, we bought a tinsy winsy little Christmas tree a few weekends ago, and although it's small, it is a real tree which means we get bonus points (right?). We found some little clip on stars at Spotlight and decorated it with some tinsel around the bottom.
The cats for some reason have not yet cottoned on that tinsel is fun to play with - let's hope it stays that way!

I found the J.Bailey Toys sign (Est 1901) last Sunday evening on a walk to get a bus pass. It was sitting next to someone's rubbish bin. Best thrifted/free find yet me thinks!

Trying to get into the Christmas spirit with tinsel in the hall way...I haven't done a tour of our wee space yet, in the mean time, here is the hall way!

Yes, I am in my jammie bottoms. It's what I do when I get home.

What do you have planned for Christmas?

  5. Pretty much as soon as my husband and I walk in the door from work, we put on our "comfy pants."

    I love your tiny tree :)

  6. I know how you feel, girl! We get back from the Honeymoon late on the 23rd and then it's right into Christmas!

    Luckily, we've got all but two presents. Then, we're spending Christmas Eve with his family and Christmas Day with mine before we head back up the mountain.
