Nobody Does It Better

than America I think for Christmas Decorations... All kinds really - The sheer exuberance of the beautiful abundance of little white lights in the photograph above .... Or, what about this reclining green reindeer with his bow-tie sitting on the giant red bauble below...

He certainly seems extremely jolly!

Not quite so happy, however, was darling little Bella when we put this Christmas ensemble on her. Bella is my friend's sweet Yorkshire Terrier... She (Bella) drew the line at the hat but I bought her the dress and she forgave us and wore it out attracting many admiring glances and smiles too!

And finally, my own little stash of Christmas goodies bought at Crate and Barrell - I could have gone CRAZY there (not enough space in my case alas and the 'good sense' of Mr SE preventing me!) .... I was really quite restrained but I am delighted with the reindeer napkins, the snowflake decorations, the snowflake tea towel and the mini gingerbread man decoration.

But now I have just realised that there are only just over 3 weeks to go and really I am not ready at all! Have not sent half my Christmas cards back to UK yet and there are several parcels I need to post off there too - I'd better get a move on!!


  1. Hi Sarah - that little dog definitely has a look on her face that says 'I'm only putting up with this because you're leaving soon'! So funny....& don't worry about being behind, I haven't even started...as you know the plans all changed at the last minute; that's my excuse & I'm sticking to it!! Love Susie xxx

  2. There's just something about those little white lights, isn't there? And I'm glad you have fun in Crate and Barrel - I really love that store but have to restrain myself. I'm currently coveting some of their purple plates which are lovely but totally un-justifiable.

  3. Nо mаttег if some οne sеагсhes foг hіs
    nесеѕsary thing, thus hе/ѕhe wаntѕ
    to be available that in dеtаil, thus thаt thing is maintaіned oѵer here.
