Well, the stockings aren't hung by the chimney with care (we do that on Christmas Eve):
But I finished those cream and red mittens:
And the narcissus bloomed:

We generally decorate with red, orange and bronze. However, it's always the strange exceptions that are the family favourites:

the blue jay, another favourite of mine, they're such wretched, though beautiful creatures,
the spider, there's always a little tension as to who gets to put this on the tree, as both the kids like it (it has a bell inside),
the grasshopper, my son's second favourite after the spider,
yoda (he's looking a bronzey-green, but he's really more swampy),
and, for Nigel, Darth Vader.
Here's a second shot of the tree, with presents this time:
I chose lime-green and black wrap this year. It's making me very happy.
