Christmas lights!

Is it too soon?  Today I couldn't resist and switched on My ancient coloured fairy lights on My heart wreath in the kitchen....

Now I'm feeling all Christmassy :)

No crochet to show this week I'm afraid. I've been working on My pressies for lovely Sarah at squiggling about http://squigglingabout.blogspot.co.uk/, trying to get organised for  LaaLaas Advent swap... 


If I disappear over the next few weeks its just Mam and Dad are moving and all hands are needed to pack up the old house and decorate the new one.....

Hopefully I wont be away too long,
take care all,
love Julie  XxXxXx

  7. So glad to see I'm not the only one that lies to turn on lights early. My granddaughter wants to put the Christmas tree up and being seven it's hard to wait.

  9. I love the festive theme! We've been quietly collecting things for Christmas for a few weeks. I love this early stage where it starts to feel festive but things aren't too manic! Jx

  24. I always feel more Christmassy in November than December and then I wait and wait for the right time and then somehow lose the magic feeling. I think i will also go for it when I feel like this year which is about now! Hope your Mam and Dad's move goes well. xxx

  26. Dear, sweet Julie, I don't think it is too early for Christmas decorating. I have had my autumn decorations out for so long, I put them away and have began my Christmas decorating too. Your fairy lights look lovely! Take good care dearest and I hope all goes well with your parent's move. I miss you! Lots of love sweetie, Paula xoxo
