My Place and Yours: The Christmas Party

Because I didn't put up our tree, I didn't think I'd done much decorating
but looking around Christmas is in evidence this year in a blaze of colour.

Annie-Rose was thrilled to bits with the Christmas books
that come out every year.

The sofa got a quilt to brighten it up.

A few Christmas ornaments on the side board

Super cute little figures.

The shelf in the entrance has kept looking nice and festive.

And the lounge also. I'd completely forgotten this wallhanging,
it's such a nice surprise to see them again!

We had friends for dinner last night and it looks so cheerful and welcoming.

and hopefully inviting, in a "come and sit a while" way.

This Christmas it seems to be all about colour.
Lots and lots of it, every colour together.

Reuben has been filling our glass bottles from our neighbour's garden.
It's vibrant and it's cheerful.
And that is truly something we need this Christmas,
more than ever before, we need hope for next year!!
