Deck the Halls……

Deck  the Halls with boughs of holly Fa-la-la-la,la- la-la!
It’s the time to be jolly dear friends and I hope you are all well and ready for the holiday season.

I spent the morning today listening to Christmas songs and trying to assemble a ginger bread house I bought from the big blue and yellow shop.
I love gingerbread cookies, men, trees, stars and hearts and surely houses.
They look so pretty and so festive. Assembling biscuit houses though can prove a bit tricky!
I felt very satisfied with myself when the frosting I made came out  OK–which is not the most difficult task one can tackle, but still……

After a few hours of ‘gluing’ and ornating the little windows, doors, roof and chimney with white and pink frosting, a fairy -tale- like tiny house appeared in front of my glimmering eyes.  Happy , happy ,happy I was and foolishly proud of myself:)

 ‘A  Hansel and Gretel’ house –without the witch!!-  transported me to fairy land , to snow covered country side, fir trees, twinkling stars , reindeer and snowflakes and a roaring  fire in the fireplace of the tiny houses hidden in the deep forest.
And so I created my little fairy tale scene, I share with you  today, in my kitchen, to keep me company with its little red fairy lights during Christmas days and cold nights.
 Oh life’s little pleasures , thank you so much for the joy you bring to me.
Do you want to have a look at some of my Christmas decorations?
Here is the tree. I love white, silver and gold baubles and lots of fairy lights.

 I also love little angels . I have a small collection and I take them out every year to celebrate with me J.
It goes without saying that another  Christmas wreath was also made!!
 I found this cute little couple with their crochet bonnets and warm clothes ,at a shop the other day  and decided that they will find shelter in my  house , on a wreath ,  among my crochet flowers , greenery and ribbons.

 I love poinsettias ! Their flower doesn’t usually last long, but they are so pretty and the red petals give the house the brightest and the most festive touch.

 So , enjoy the holidays my dear friends, whatever you do, wherever you are  and try to create a warm, sweet and tender fairyland for you and your dear ones with lots of love and sugary kisses.

My love to all !

  4. Your Christmas decorations are so lovely. The gingerbread house and tree look so good! My daughter visited Nepal a few years ago and saw the poinsettias flowers growing wild. My mum always insisted that we always had a poinsettia at Christmas time. Wishing you a Happy Christmas. Sarah x
