Talking of Christmas I am so excited about it now. I know it is really far away but Paperchase has a big display of decorations which have me squeeing all over the place. I am a massive Paperchase fan, sometimes I just go in and look at all the pretty lunchboxes to cheer me up on a sad day. Although the two of us have lived together with housemates before, and spent Christmas at my parents together before this is the first time we have a place of our own at this time of year and Andy has suggested that we get a tree and decorate! I hadn't thought about that at all until this week because we had spent so much time thinking about which parents to go to. Now that he has said we should decorate our home too Andy has unleashed the gates of excitement and now I just want to buy loads of little wooden figures and snowflake decorations and the whole thing! Bit too early for all this enthusiasm I know, but I do just love Christmas.
|This is what I want for our yet-to-be-bought tree. I love this style of decoration.|
|The bench is weird. With it's weird creepy hands and various carved faces. I have no idea what it is about.|
|soft, soft, soft, soft. Mmmm. The scarf is the cuddliest thing yet.|
|The matching hat to the scarf has not won my love yet. This is me kind of unconvinced by it.|
|Before getting this close to the plant to take photos I never realised that poppys were so sharp.|
|I'm cheating and using the settings on my camera which exagerate colour, but wow this was beautiful anyway.|
