Here are a series of Christmas photos spread over the past few years - a perennial decoration are these old lanterns. Old Faithfuls - bought a huge bag full of them for 30p (from a local church sale) - large ones get to hang here and small ones hang on the tree. The first photo is one of my favourites of this room
I do not know how to adjust my photos - so this is winter sun straight out of the sky!
Each year I say I will do something different but I am drawn to these each time. That said we have turned the table in a different direction! Bronte says that we are never to get rid of our 'Breathless' poster
I like prefer these older paper lanterns as they have extra dangley bits
Tra la la
I have certainly had my 30p worth of fun!
We no longer have the piano....sniff, sniff
Last year I couldn't find the tinsely string so had to make do with ordinaire...not quite the same but I did a 'double cross over' to make up for it!!
Are you lanterned out now!!!
Oh - I do have two more special painted lanterns that I will dig out next time around
If Blogger permits I will try and upload another series of photographs that demonstrate the 'changing of the tablecloths' that takes place on Christmas day. Well - if you can't show them off at Christmas time when can you!!!
This video is of later afternoon cheese and crackers ! Plus the chocolate log that the children made. Tra la la
I will add in here that when we moved in to this house the dining room was possibly the worst room of all - years before the house had been used as bedsits and this room had silver wallpaper and grey shag pile - it was grim. However, given its past life, all the original bits and bobs were still there - no one had bothered to remove them. Every room still has its original fireplace (complete with soot) - one day I will sort the chimney out in this room and light a fire in here too!
Keep warm everyone...unless you are in a hot country...then keep cool....
