Ala Gypsy: It`s that time of year again....





































It`s that time of year again.......my favourite time of year.......full of sounds, smells and sights that I love.....In our house Christmas decorations "appear" as early as possible, but this year, according to my very dissapointed children, "I`m late, I`m late, I`m late"...yes for a very important date......a date that we have every year...... early in November we pick a day when we have mince pies, christmas music and lots of good cheer and decorate the whole house...... I always see to it, that my new decorations are finished by that time (most of it at least)....but oh dear me, this year I havn`t even started yet......so this Gypsy is not everyone`s no 1 fan at home......ready, steady,go.....I`m in christmas "mode" and will share some of my finds and preparations and other lovelies with you.......

......yes Gypsy, there`s a lot of people out there not as lazy as you...that already did a lot of their christmas decorations......well, then we will look at theirs so long....... here is some inspiration to get "us" started......

Oh, Wow, lots of wonderful inspiration for the coming Christmas season.
I am not behind with my decorations. We don't decorate the house as early as you do, here in the U.K. We usually put our Christmas tree up (and it has to be a real tree) until a couple of weeks before Christmas. Good luck with the preparations. XXXX
