Decorating!

Today I finally get to put my Christmas tree up! Yipee!





The flash has really washed out the colours but they are all silver and purple, not overly Christmassy colours I'll allow but I think it looks pretty! The first bauble picture is the one my Dad sent me from The Isle of Wight Glass Company and the camel and elephant baubles are from Mum she brought them home from Saudia Arabia.

Having come over all Christmassy I have also decided to make crackers again this year....

....cracker snaps are surprisingly difficult to buy in central London so I bought some cheap crackers from Sainsburys and took them apart. I then fill them up with chocolates, as there are only adults at this years gathering some rather rude jokes, a number and a lotto scratchcard. The numbers tell you which parcel to unwrap and there is a daft hat in each parcel, et viola crackers!


I was wearing this little lot to decorate in...




Dress: Firetrap
Tee: Dorothy Perkins
Tights: Dorothy Perkins
Boots: Shelleys

Tatty and The Boy are staying over tonight and she brought me a "thank you for letting me stay" pressie!

They are very in keeping with our "in" octopus joke and made me giggle!

Lots of Love

  3. LOLS Sarah! The crackers game is so easy to make and way more fun than the silly paper hats that usually come with the crackers! x
