The photos are not very good because to have it light enough to see the objects then it's too light to see the lights...............It looks a lot better in real life!
(If you are OCD inclined I apologise for the cottage not being quite in the middle of the shelf, I have remedied that now!)
The Lilliput Lane winter cottage that belonged to my Mum,
a lantern with tea light and sitting snowman, also from charity shops. Then a string of artificial holly from the packaging supply place last month and some tiny LED lights from QD.
I'd rather have real holly but it would soon dry out over the fire, but I will be bringing some in for the Solstice.
Maybe it looks a bit sparse, thought I had more in the Christmas decoration box but most decorations we have are hanging rather than standing. May have to search round a few more charity shops!
Full Moon tonight - and look at this lovely Christmas card from a friend we visited just before Col went into hospital. A National Trust Card............Moonlit Hare.
Love it, especially as we've seen hares around quite close. Which reminds me, I saw our Barn Owl yesterday morning, getting annoyed at a Magpie. Such a treat.
Many many MANY thanks for the lovely thoughtful comments yesterday, it does help to know that so many people from all round the world are wishing him well.
