Home for Christmas - Getting There

I feel like Christmas has hurtled around the corner at breakneck speed this year. The decorations have gone up a bit randomly but it's always lovely to see some old favourites again. My grandparents had one of these little pipe cleaner trees. Mine cost 25p from a charity shop but it's priceless to me.
And there are a couple of new treats. New mugs for hot chocolate on chilly days.
A lovely big red star that's hanging in the conservatory with honeycomb decorations we've collected over the past few years.
And I managed to capture a bit of bokeh on my bridge camera (thanks Nina!). Not brill but not bad. You know, getting there!

I saw Nina's bokeh tips as well and tried them out, yours are wonderful. Lovely photos all round of some of your treasures. So nice to get out all the familiar things every year. I do hope you all have a good Christmas and a very happy New Year.

Your Christmas decorations are lovely and look very Swedish, that Advent star makes me homesick. I want to find out more about you, sign up to follow perhaps, but I can't find my way around here, so I will try another approach. I'm in Bloblovin right now.

Hi Steph - I do love all your Christmassy decorating and I 'love' your new mugs - perfect for cupping cold hands around delicious hot chocolate.

Here's to meeting up in 2014...not long now 'eeek!' Thank you for all your help on that.

Merry Christmas and the warmest of wishes to you and your beautiful family for 2014.

Nina and the rest of us! xxx
