Finally feeling festive!

Yet to wrap a present mind, but that's where I'm headed after I press publish! 
The house downstairs is FCT*. All lit up and cosy. 
I hung my Robin in the lit wreath and after discovering it's indoors only it is now adorning my chimney breast! 
Dining room window is dressed. 
Cheeky snowmen are everywhere! As are baubles and lights and candles. 
Sideboard is so pretty. 

Fireplace done! It looks like a bomb went off in a tinsel factory at my house! 

Book case festooned with lights! 
You can see my Russian doll santas that I've had forever and the little ceramic nativity set that's as old as Miss 21. 

Right, shin beef stew to get going and then off upstairs to wrap some stuff!! 
*FCT = Father Christmas Tidy! 

Are you ready yet? 

Lots of love from 

Rachel *If you stand still in my house you are in danger of being betinselled and lit up* Radiostar xxx

  1. Oh gawd you've finally done it Rach..... you've shamed me into a visit to the dark netherworld that is our loft to retrieve the bloody Christmas tree, bugger!
    Mind you I quite fancy the idea of being 'betinselled and lit ;-)

  2. It all looks lovely Rachel and the nativity set is so cute. Tinsel gets a thumbs up from me. We have ours hung over picture frames and mirrors as well as on the tree.

    Yes, I'm ready! Apart from the last minute jobs like cooking the turkey. Just waiting for it to happen now. Can't wait. xx

  4. Looks fantastic. We are just waiting for son and wife to arrive from Germany and then we'll be set. Have a wonderful time. The fireplace looks stunning.
