I has taken me a while to get back into the swing of things with blogging. I have been lurking in the trenches at you all and getting some lovely inspiring Christmas Ideas.
Usually I am little Miss Santa Claus but this year everything has faded a little.
The Christmas tree is up and is a little different this year. I will post a photo soon.
There is something warm and inviting about the "stripey candyness" of this setting.
I do love it.
I have a confession to make, I adore ribbons and bows and everything wrapping. I have been known on occasion to even have my own purchases wrapped. I learnt this from a lovely friend of mine. If I shop is offering free wrapping - why on earth not?
I also have a habit of wrapping things up again so they still look lovely. I am known for it. The colours of Christmas are so inviting and easy to put together. I am sticking with gold and silver this year and also plain wrapping embellished with red, white, gold or silver.

I love the look of this idea of mixing Christmas treats with the wrapping and just might have to go out and find myself some candy canes or lollie pops.
Yes Christmas is coming regardless of how I feel about things. I don't want to fake it until I make it as I do feel somewhat in the spirit. My Christmas list is already filled thanks to the recovery of my Dear Dad.
Enjoy the preparations this week. x
