There is so much anticipation and preparation getting everything ready and whoosh it's over so quickly.
While the LG machines are working hard to clean and dry the clothes I thought I would sit down with a mug of tea and have a catch up. It feels like a long time since I sat at the computer and wrote a post.
It is our Christmas tradition to buy a Charlie Brown tree.
We use all white fairy lights and vintage ornaments and glass garland.
Mr. HB bought some Christmassy drink coasters.
He also bought some for the dining table.
I love these, they are so cheerful.
The Humble Bungalow dining table set for Christmas dinner.
I picked up a few sprigs of holly from a neighbours yard.
They trim their tree and leave it on the boulevard for anyone passing by to help themselves.
They've been doing this for the past 30 years.
I got into the red and green theme with our food.
In the bathroom...
The Objibwa duck decoys were nestled snugly between the vintage bottle brush trees.
A wonderful nautical themed wreath was a gift from our friends.
This will be taken out to our boat after the holidays.
Love the organic effect of the rope.
Mr. HB gave me a new Emma Bridgewater mug and some of my favourite tea from Murchies.
He knows how to keep me happy.
Thank you :-))
Christmas is not about the gifts.
It's about giving...
family and friends,
pure and simple.
Well dear readers my tea break is over and I need to go and iron the linen.
Remember kindness never goes out of style.
