In the festive mood…

Deck the halls and all that…

Every year I try to make at least one new decoration for the festive season.  This year I have been making garlands of tiny trees..

… I am obsessed with them… I have made way over a hundred, given a string to mum and sent 2 sets to my nieces.  I have hung mine along shelving and across windows…

… and I am still making them… planning on taking a pile to my sister’s house on Christmas day.

Now I need to think about a non-Christmassy garland theme for the rest of the year to save me removing all the hooks and nails I have hammered into the walls and cupboards!

Happy days…
