10th December Maybe next years theme should be retro... Town's charity shops are full of excellent vintage baubels, the kind covered in strands of what I guess is nylon or one of those other highly flammable 60's materials. I might just buy a load anyway.
We got these from freecycle (you can see the black ones on facebook) but they were always a little bit austear, so I've softened them slightly, and I'm pretty happy with them. I'm sure when I was in town yesterday I could find dinner candles in more exciting colours but never mind, they look good for now!
1st December I don't have an advent calendar this year, nor have we put up any Christmas decorations so I've decided to make an awesome advent calendar of awesome festive blog posts - titles will always link to the original I'm starting to feel a little bit festive (I'm guessing that's the snow's fault, and the fact all my Christmas Shopping is done- I have had 1 Christmas dinner, but that was more logistics then anything)
