Christmas is coming

Having a lovely weekend, made soup, veggie currie, cards and 3 braceletes and even managed to sqeeze in a bit of shopping today. We were on our way to B&Q tonight when we remembered seeing one of our local hardware shops was having a closing down sale. BARGINS GALORE! I got 3 x storage tubs for my beads, 20 paint tester pots for £3!!, and beautiful Christmas decorations.
This beautiful star is one of a set of 4, bargin of the day, £2! I am going to make a feature of them on my fire place.

Bobbles galore! I am going to use the small ones for my tiny tree and use the larger gold and burgandy ones in a vase. I have been using my glitter glue to decorate some of the larger ones but they look a bit ropey at the moment so I'll need to think carefully about the designs.

And this was only 50p so I had to have it! It has really put me in the mood and I am really looking forward to start decorating and getting into the spirit of things. It was all helped along by a recent issue of the Ideal Homes magazine which is full of beautiful ideas and goodies and I plan to make my own versions. We also watched "Elf" tonight, it was so funny and cheesey but made me feel warm inside. So when I have my place all done I'll take some photos to let you all see.
