Almost that time… (Christmas Countdown)

Time is ticking. It won’t be too long before Santa has to dust off his special red suit before heading off on his annual world-wind trip around the world.

There’s only another four more sleeps before we’ll be waking to find the Christmas stockings filled and the soon to-be tried Pumpkin Praline Pie to be consumed… woot woot!

A plate of pretty pinecones! (OWPC – Macro)

Christmas is so close. You can feel the excitement in the air as the days are ticked off the calendar. Everything looks that much prettier after a coating of Christmas.

Macro is the One Word Photo Challenge from Tourmaline this week.

Lit up for Christmas! (Macro Monday)

Things are getting serious now. Only one week and counting before Christmas is officially upon us. Sadly, Christmas is going to be over before we know it.

This wire gift is just one of a set of four. They were bought after our first Christmas in Canada. Thinking back, I think they were actually the store’s own decorations and rather than putting them away, they sold them. Lucky me!

 

 

 

 

 

 

Best Buds (Fun Friday)

When I first bought this reindeer, I immediately christened him “Stumpy”. It seemed like a really good idea at the time given his woody appearance.

However, now with Olaf is sitting on his back, he’s been renamed Sven. Given that I’m a HUGE Frozen fan it simply could not NOT be done!

Whoo whoo likes Christmas? (Macro Monday)

What’s not to love about this cute little owl nestled amongst the branches of our foyer Christmas tree, keeping his delicate glass self out of harms way?

At least one hopes this owl is out of harms way. With two cats that seem to digress to kitten mode whenever the temperatures begin dropping, it’s hard to know for certain!

Been good all year… nearly! (Fun Friday)

When I first began decorating the house this year, I had grandiose plans for these permanent wreaths on our barn doors. Then I unpacked these hats, putting them into the wreaths on a lark… and liked it.

A larger stocking was originally hung from it but when I saw these smaller ones last week I couldn’t resist. They were just what was needed, with the other stocking saying, “Santa I can explain“.
