On the home front

I've been getting the house sorted over the last couple of days as once I've done the trip south and the trip north, we have guests.

It's been like an archeological dig getting the spare room ready, so much stuff to shift. But progress has been made!

Picture 1: Roast chestnuts, my favourite food :) Deer vase: ebay, poinsettia wreath: charity shop (25p)
Picture 2: Alpine oil painting: car boot £1.50, cushion: fine little day, folksy curtains: ebay
Picture 3: spare bedroom, chair: car boot £8, plaster lamp base: ebay, lamp shade: salvation army £2, cheesecake pic of Sophia Loren: a present
Picture 4: Balalaika lady cushion: freckleface, crinoline lady cushion made from an old tea cosy: jumble sale, embroidered dutch people picture: present from my sis, plaster heads: inherited from my grandmother
Picture 5: foil garlands: inherited
Picture 6: tree and me, embroidered blouse: car boot 50p

Here's a good antidote to Xmas stress :)
