The decorations are coming down tomorrow. We decorated a lot more than last year , but it still wasn't a lot.
I have had this collection of nutcrackers for a few years now - a few are from USA but the vast majority are from K- Mart and Farmers - two stores in NZ. They were on our old tv cabinet in the front hallway this year - tomorrow that horrible piece of furniture will be gone and I will have an empty hallway for the first time in months! One day I would like a small hallway table. In the meantime, the hallway needs an urgent paint!
I made the Santa at a class when I was living in Melbourne back in 2002. I still adore it.
The houses are advent calendars from Phoenix stationery - they bring a new town house out every year now.
The table cloth was given to me from my grandmother - I think it was made in Hungary.
And I had 23 Christmas cards this year - hee hee. Very very few New Zealanders send or exchange cards - I love them , still post a pile out myself with my yearly letter. I love getting cards and yearly letters back in return.
I will miss the pine smell in the house.
