Welcome lovely friends & readers
(Warning : a photo heavy post ahead - you may need a cuppa or a snack, or half the contents of your pantry (!!!) before you're finished) 😉
I have finished my Christmas decorating here at Threadbear HQ. Usually I put the tree up, then fling a few Santa's around & toss the rest of the boxes back in the sleepout. This year - for no apparent reason - I decided to get every single decoration out, repair many of them that needed it, & either display them - or send in a box to the Op Shop.
Sid & I started the tree a couple of weeks ago & then my dear friend Carolyn came for lunch so she helped me to finish it.
|Though I have photographed it at night the lights are not really showing up.|
I'm just so pleased I finally did something with my vintage Ice Skates 💕

I was able to find some mossy branches on my very old Plum Tree for his antlers.
Thank You all So Very Much if you have managed to stay til the end (Phew). I cannot end this post without giving you a link to my friend Claire's Stunning Christmas Home. If you are on Instagram you can go * Here * to see photos & video's of her home - believe me friends - it is well worth a visit.
Wishing you a wonderful week ahead - be kind to yourselves & to each other,
With much love & friendship to you all,
Love Julie & the furry ones x0x0x0
