I’d like to wish all my wonderful and supportive blog followers a very happy, healthy and Sasha filled New Year.
I only managed to get to open my much appreciated presents on Thursday afternoon so haven’t had the time to photograph and thank you for them but rest assured I will be doing so asap.
Meanwhile I have posted a few photos of my usual annual Christmas decorations… for the new followers to my blog posts to see.
These are two of my additional presents from Chon , who gave me an electrically heated faux fur throw as my main gift to enjoy my afternoon naps and TV viewing time suggled under. (Still need to take a photo of this.)
Outside the front door decorations. (I planted two Christmas Roses and some ivy in the chimney pots this year and then added red bows.)
Decorations in the hallway. (Have added some tiny LED lights to the twig tree this year.)
The living room decorations. Firstly the twig tree.
The dividing wall between the lounge and dining areas.
The back wall of the dining area by the sideboard.
The dining table.
It has become a family tradition now for me to plant some Hyacinth bulbs in readiness to take the place of when the decorations come down, so that it doesn’t look so bare and the surrounding air is filled with their lovely perfume. (These are the ones that I did for Chon to take back with her but have also done some for for my middle brother and his wife and for myself.)
Many thanks for all the delightful Christmas cards that you have so kindly sent me. It has been really enjoyable getting these through the post box and then reading the little messages inside.
A million thanks too for the super gifts, Sasha events, blogposts, emails and telephone calls over yet another year… which all go to make my life so much more enriched.
May God bless you all and keep you happy and healthy through the coming year.
