Its beginning to look a lot like Christmas:

The house is almost decorated - just a few more bits to do. I loved this sign, that i got in Boscastle:

Meet Moose - stuffa:

We have two trees in our new house. The tree we have had for years is in our living room. In our old house the star used to almost touch the ceiling, but in this house there is over a 2 foot gap!! This tree is filled with bits we have had for years, like my eldest sons handprint tree we did when he was one, painted wooden decorations, and decorations from disney:

The new tree in the dining room is my tree. I was going to go out and buy new matching decorations in teal, green and purple. But when i started sorting through boxes, i found enough decorations to fill it. Now i'm really pleased. There are decorations from bloggers and my fairy is a lovely gift i recieved a few years ago from Charlotte:

I filled my late Nans cake stand with left over baubles:

I bought this traditional calendar from here in the sale last year. I love a traditional advent calendar even more than the chocolate ones. Although the Hotel Chocolat one that my Mum bought for me and my hubbie to share is pretty good :)

I saw this gorgeous coat on Love Audreys blog. It feels so right for Christmas time. I was lucky enough to get it in the sale for half price. I picked it up yesterday and also got some lovely socks:

Although the style is more me. I bought this for my husband yesterday as i love the words. Its going to hang in our bedroom. Whenever i buy him something i leave it on his pillow so he finds it when he comes home from work and gets changed.

I also treated myself to two Christmas novels. Both writers who i have read before. 

 I picked up these yesterday for my Dad, to be part of his Christmas present. I'm not even sure if he still likes them, but i remember him eating them when i was little. I love the nostalgic packaging:

I have a gorgeous big Nursery Ryhme book from my childhood. My eldest wasnt that interested in it when he was younger. But the little one likes to get it out every now and then. Aren't the pictures lovely?

 I am enjoying Christmas treats. Lots of tea, hot chocolate, mince pies, and Christmas tree shortbread:

Did you get the books in Tescos, they have them as a pack in there (very cheap) I keep meaning to pop them in the trolley.
Love both of your sign but the Believe one is my fave!
Have a great weekend!

What a lovely Christmas post, I am getting quite excited now about Christmas seeing how people decorate their homes. Your two trees look great, as do all your decorations. I love that coat too, I love red dresses, coats and woolies. Afternoon tea in a china cup looks perfect. So much yummy here, love
