A Little Closer to Christmas

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:

And here is the tree:

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

the lemon, I love the lemon,

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.

The green and black wrapping looks very fresh and exciting. I love it.

I like those eclectic and atypical ornamnets. Keeps the season edgy! The lime green and black is also different and yet scrumptious. Now why didn't I think of that???? Okay thinking caps on for next year's colours... let's see... how about puce and lavender? hmmmm maybe not... any ideas?
