I will leave you with a few pictures of my decorations. Like you might know every year I choose a different colour scheme and base my decorations on that. So this year I found the most wonderful felt little ice skates in shades of sage, cream and chocolate, so my combo was born.
sorry the pictures are not great as you know taking any good ones without flash is never good, but I rather have blury pics then use a flash.
You can see them hung from our mantelpiece. Also I found the most exquisite reindeer's made from overlapped leaves and drenched in the most sparkly glitter, they are really gorgeous and everyone that visited so far has fallen in love with them. Clicking on the image should make it bigger for you to see them better.
The tree was mostly decorated with ornaments made by myself over the years.
I have spent nearly an entire month 8 years ago making handmade angels with knotted knees and raffia halos and cute little bags to hold a choccie treat. Felt filigree angels some flocked snowflakes and garlands made from tiny bits of mirror to catch and reflect the light make for my perfect tree, is special because is mine, I LOVE CHRISTMAS. The NOEL ornament came from B&Q for a staggering £0.99.
Here s a close up of an angel, the only thing that spoils it is my hand drawn features. I cannot draw to save my life which is why I become a rubber stamper.
They were a bit time consuming I seem to remember but they are so sweet, I remember I made them from some of my old linen trousers and even some of hubby's shirts. The wings were cut from thin ply in a heart shape then painted and distressed, each one different.
Thank you once again for your comments and your support, have a wonderful and Peaceful Christmas everyone , hugs Monica xxx
