At the end of November Scott asked me,
“When are we going to get our Christmas tree?”
To which I replied,
“December 1st of course!”
Christmas trees are only up for one month out of twelve so I want to get as much tree time as I can! However, as it happened, we didn’t have time on December 1st so we waited a few extra days.
For the last few years we’ve headed to our local forestry commission tree shop. This one is our biggest yet; sitting just 10cm below ceiling level. Scott was right, we really didn’t need a bigger tree!
We have a bowl of pinecones, cinnamon sticks and cloves. Boy does it smell Christmassy. The dish was a house warming gift from family but is perfect for holding all these bits and bobs.
Crochet snowflake garland I made years ago; I still love it. I used Attic 24’s crochet snowflake pattern and Anchor Mercer Crochet Cotton (it’s super thin).
Christmas is only ten days away now, squeeeeee! We’re both really looking forward to spending it at home with our family and stuffing our faces with turkey roast, cheeses and clementine cake (first time making it, wish me luck).
Hope you all have a very merry Christmas! I’ll raise a glass to another great year of HDYGG! Thanks for hosting Annie! x
