It's beginning to feel a "bit" like christmas....

Hello all my wonderful blog friends...if you are still all it sure has been a while! Life just has a way of getting too busy doesn't it? Menial things like work and responsibilities (hee hee)have a habit of getting in the way of doing what we really want to do dont they?

Oh well, as Ned (Kelly that is) said - "such is life...."

I am pleased to say that (apart from getting anything else done that I am supposed to) I have managed to make a start on my christmas decorating.

It is Sunday morning, hubby was having a well earned sleep in, so I  thought this would be a great time to share some pics with you...

Please allow me to show you around my now "somewhat Christmassy" home....I hope you like enjoy the tour...

As you walk in the front door....welcome!

a short stroll down the hall and into the kitchen
...a closer look 

..just a hint of holly and a plum pud
on the old metters stove

...what's christmas without a ginger or two!

Now lets toddle on into the back family room...
I have decorated this room mostly with snowmen. I dont know why but I think the blue and cream tones of this room lend themselves to a few cool snowies!

Snowie tree in an old suitcase topped with an antique tophat
I just love this tree...

In the nook of the dresser...

Snowies everywhere!!!
These three stand on top of my set of huge old Dayton scales


....more of the little beggers!
 ...and more

...hanging out in an old timber meatsafe

...and for a bit of bling

and finally some cool snowies hang out on  a twig tree
that stands in an old wooden pram base

Now lets take a wander on into the front loungeroom.
This room is a bit more Santa and red and green themed.....
main tree with handmade ornies...
A Santa themed gathering
(soory about the "t" in took a t for tumble!!!

...and finally into the spare bedroom
a simple twig tree with some snowie ornies

and a gathering on and beside an old chair
Well that's it for the decorating piccies. I still have a bit more that I could show you but will leave it at that for now as you probably have picture overload... but I will leave you with a couple of pics of some more Christmas decorating I have been up to...
...this time they're of goodies for my upcoming market next weekend. (Saturday 8th- Richmond Showground )
...hope to see you there!

Until next time.... Chris x
