This gorgeous little cottage, with its twinkly lights was from my sister and BIL many years ago!

I took this literally and chose to take a picture of a set of ancient Dickens books that I got from an old couple my parents used to know.

Six More!

14 - Up Above
There are loads of berries on the holly tree this year. It's a strange old tree ....... the leaves at the bottom are all normal holly leaves with spikey bits, but as you can see, the higher up you go, the smoother the leaves get!

15 - Down Below
My feet, as I took the 'Up Above' shot!

7 - Wrapping
Nothing fancy in any way, but it only gets ripped anyway!

9 - Indulge
I saw this in Tesco and just HAD to get a tub!

12 - List
What better list than the one I'm using right now!

21 - Candy
Candy canes hanging from the festoons on the stairs.

Carol and Angel

5 - Carol
I found this old A4 sheet of scrapbooking paper this morning as I was searching for something else!

6 - Angel
This old angel used to sit on top of the tree for many, many years - but hasn't been used for a long time now. She is still beautiful though.

8 - Cosy
The candlelight, with the wonderful aromas of oranges, cloves and cinnamon, make the coldest room seem cosy.

24 - Gold

I saw this golden sunrise today - perfect for word 24!

I got this gorgeous Santa many years ago and he is very much my favourite!

20 - Hanging

Image Quest

I am taking part in a new photo-prompt group called "Image Quest". For December, the words are all Christmas and party related!

1 - Advent

I decorated this wooden advent house a couple of years ago and I really don't like it much any more, but it will do for this year. I think I'll try to redo it for next year. I made the little origami boxes and lids myself. Time-consuming, but very satisfying too! :-)

2 - Frosty
The grass in my garden was almost completely white with frost this morning! Perfect timing for today's word!
