Merry and bright

It's official: I'm done with present shopping!!! Are you? Good luck to those who are still crowd surfing in the M&S undies section looking for stocking stuffers!

I've also finished wrapping them! I like to go for a simple brown paper look for most things and this year I invested in some gardening twine and used cute little baubles for a more festive vibe. One lucky member of the family even got the "tea towel-wrapped present" treatment!

Our cards are hanging up over the redundant fireplace. I would have hung them all up there but can't seem to find the rest of my pegs. 

And just in case you missed it yesterday: here are some more shots of my pretty Hornsea jar sitting on the bookshelf. 

The blue really makes the design pop. I think I'm in love...

It's sitting right next to my little collection of crystal-looking things. All of these except the jug belonged to my dear Gran. The jug came from a charity shop in Ireland (hooray for travelling with a car that you can pack full of junk!).

And to finish off with a bit more Christmas cheer in case you haven't had enough yet, here are some cheeky little decorations that escaped the previous photo session...

    Hello Caro, It all looks lovely, your gifts are beautifully wrapped, hope the T towel not for Uncle B as he got a T towel wrapped gift from me, lol! That one is more than just a T towel though I think. The Hornsea jar is very nice, dates from mid 20th century I think doesn't it?
    Which gran was the glass from? As you were not in the car when you went to London, I'm wondering.....
    Happy Sunday xxx
