The tree is up and adorned with all my favourite decorations – at least the ones that I could easily reach from the loft. In the evenings, when the fire is alight, it’s such a cosy room with quilts over the sofas and my ever growing collection of Winter-themed cushions. I just love vintage style Winter cushions – reindeer, red tractors and snowscenes – can’t get enough of them and they’re all lined up on the sofa! TKMaxx always has a good stock of them and it’s one of my favourite early-December trips – to choose a new Winter cushion.
The little Russian pottery horse decorations remind me of happy times in Bath many years ago when there was an exquisite Russian Shop – I’m so glad I collected the little horses. The felted fairy is by Yasmin who is a regular trader at the Alton Craft Market. I can’t find her Etsy shop at the moment, but will add a link when I do.
My little Snow People have a new handmade coastal village to live in and it reminds me of Porthleven last Spring when the snow came – a very unusual event! How I wish I’d been there to see that. I can’t believe it’ll be almost 6 months until I stay there again but I am able to keep up with the state of the tide by daily visits to the Porthleven Webcam.
You can visit lots of local webcams on the same site and this weekend will be switch on of the Christmas Lights at Mousehole – a famous tradition and then they will be dimmed on 19 December between 8 – 9 pm.
