Yule decorations


image

Picked from the hedgerows near our village, the simple foliage beautifully decorates my Yule wreath. Below is my heart of Yule indoor wreath. I love the simple art of wreath making, anyone can do it by walking about the countryside and  selecting fresh foliage some with berries to cut gently with secateurs.   Remember to thank nature for it’s offerings to you and you’ll enjoy your foliage and berries for the entire festive season. You can also attach pearls and other crystals, dried fruit and ribbons or burlap.

Lazy Sunday: Christmas cottage


image

I just thought I’d share with you this lovely christmas cottage, all lit up. I go past this jolly home every evening on my regular dog walk around the village, it puts me in a festive mood. It’s lovely that people make the effort to cheer up the local community by putting on a colourful display.

Festive feast

Festive feast
Peeping lavishly,
Dripping luscious,
Succulent scarlet
Berries;
Merry amongst
Evergreens.
Seek for a wreath,
Woven with holly
To greet revellers,
Jingling reindeer
And tingling fairies.

Twinkling lights beckoned the shoppers at the St.Albans Christmas market as the temperature plummeted and twilight helped to create the wonderful magical festive atmosphere.
