Christmas Joy (Christmas Countdown)

These oversized Christmas ornaments were some of the very first Christmas decorations I bought here to celebrate our very first Christmas in Canada.

Finding the right spot for them since our move though proved more than a little challenging. So much so they weren’t even unboxed last year. This year however they sit out proudly complete with tea-lights.

Into the night sky! (Wordless Wednesday)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Seriously, do I LOOK like a Llama? (OWPC – Llama)

This is Herbert. I’d popped into the grocery store last month to simply pick up some milk and came away with Herbert. Herbert being the name the woman behind me in line named him. It stuck. He looks like a Herbert.

Herbert really is rockin’ the rustic vibe with all those pine-cones, twigs and burlap. His facial expression though for me is priceless. He really does appear to be quite shocked at being called a Llama.

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

Tizzied up trivet! (Macro Monday)

When I first began preparing the house for Christmas last month, this small metal trivet actually had a ten-inch glass cloche covering the candle and baubles. It did have. Note, past tense.

Since then, Sir Fergus on one of his nightly escapades, on jumping through the foyer/dining room alcove, knocked one of the candle stick holders onto the trivet. Interestingly the glass didn’t shatter there. Oh no, that would have been WAY too easy.

Bizarrely the cloche somehow was knocked completely off the trivet onto the ground where it shattered into a thousand pieces. All I wanted was a quick coffee before my shower but instead there I was searching for broken glass… ugh!

Hats off to Christmas! (Fun Friday)

Rabbit, rabbit. Pinch and a punch for the first of the month. And what’s super exciting about this month, it’s the first day of the Christmas month… woot woot!

With this in mind I thought I change things up for Friday’s this month, from flowers to something a little bit fun. This is just one of two oversized Christmas hats I have. They sit next to our sofa table, one on top of the other filled with fairy lights.

In hindsight, I really should have included the sofa table to give some perspective of the size of these hats which, when stacked, stand three feet tall!

Christmas… don’t you just LOVE IT!

A touch of Autumn in Christmas (Weekly Weather: Autumn/Fall)

The Christmas decorations are slowly filling up the shelves in our local stores and I have to say, I’m really enjoying the rustic feel the decorations have this year. It’s a little like autumn but with attitude!

Autumn/Fall is this week’s challenge for Weather Weekly from Tourmaline.

Time for a little Christmas Light (OWPC – Light)

It’s that time of year again… time to dust off and drag down all the boxes of Christmas decorations that have been safely tucked away in the attic for the year.

It’s time for a little Christmas color, time for a little Christmas clutter, time to light up Christmas. Let the Christmas Countdown begin… woot, woot!

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