December 2013 – Festive
I was going to enjoy taking these photos. It was an excuse to get out and about with my camera. Unfortunately, things didn’t turn out that way. Firstly, we got our new kitten, that couldn’t be left alone for the first week. Then life events took over and when I did manage to get out I couldn’t find anything that took my fancy, or would make a good photo. We didn’t get to any carol services or Christmas events this year. Mo was poorly with a bad cold, which kept us in all over Christmas and now I have it. Because of this, my photos are all taken in our home, I’m afraid, but they are festive.
One of our Christmas tree ornaments. We bought a lot of tree ornaments especially styled after very old fashioned decorations. We loved the traditional look of them.
This next photo is one of our Christmas Fairies. I have no idea of where or why we bought this, as it’s too large for the top of any tree we would have. We use it as a Christmas ornament.
Running out of ideas, I decided to try and get some fairy lights in. This is the garland on our fire surround. I deliberately blurred the lights, to make it a little more interesting. I like the way they are shining on the wall.
It wouldn’t be Christmas without the turkey, so here is a shot of ours. It’s a lot smaller than usual, as we always have so much left over and there is only so many ways of eating left over turkey.
Lastly, here is a shot of one of the bunches of balloons we have, hanging from the ceiling.
