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!

 

 

 

 

Frosty at five! (Wordless Wednesday)

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

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!

 

 

 

 

 

Blushing Santa! (Christmas Countdown)

This plush little blushing Santa is so very colorful in his suit of pink, blue and green. He was bought when we unexpectedly found ourselves in Australia for Christmas, celebrating another two, before moving to Canada.

Our belongings had been packed up months earlier for transporting to Canada. Then came the GFC, postponing our move. Christmas was in two weeks, decorations were needed. It would be four months before our belongings returned to us.

Unlock your inner Unicorn! (OWPC – lock)

Don’t you just love this unicorn we picked up last month at the local Christmas Craft Fair? It is so, so cute. Every time I walk past our ornament tree I can’t help but smile at it.

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

 

 

 

 

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“.

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.
