It’s Christmas Chez Aixie

I have finally got the Christmas decorations up!

Well…….I say decorations, so far it is two trees and a wreath, so there may be more if I have both the time and the inspiration.

Until then, check it out:

Here’s how it happened…..

It was absolutely filthy, so I stuck it in the dishwasher

I couldn’t believe the difference!

Then I just wired on some shiny little baubles.

Can you see Luiseach watching me through the screen door?

Then it was onto the big tree.

I told you there would be tassels, but I was given some cute vintage 70s satin baubles and purchased some modern ones in the op shop when I got the wreath several months ago.

This may or may not be a tip you already know, but to make hanging ornaments easier, open out some paper clips and you have instant ornament hangers:

It’s looking very festive!
