Christmas Decorations

It's a little late to be posting about Christmas, but - well - Mum's been asking, and she's my most dedicated reader, so I need to keep her happy!

If you look carefully, you can just see the God Jul
made by beautiful Johanna, hanging in the entranceway...

This branch obligingly fell down in the garden some months ago;
I liked its windswept look so kept it in the garage until I was ready to use it...

All the wooden ornaments were bought in Prague, many years ago!

The candleholder came from this year's Norwegian Christmas market;
so did the little wreath of mistletoe wound through it...
the Advent candles were made by my mother!

Our table set for Christmas dinner, which this year we shared with Anna and Dimitry
(as we'd had turkey so recently, at Thanksgiving, we broke with tradition and had a
leg of lamb... but as I was VERY busy cooking there are no photos of the meal!)

The lounge room ready for Christmas Eve guests
