Festive

We don't usually bother too much with Christmas trees and decorations but last week I saw this fellow in a  shop window and thought he was quite sweet.



He is now on the mantlepiece, reminding me that we are supposed to be starting to feel festive as it is 1st December.

That is the extent of our decorations for this year (although I am sure we may be tempted to be less Scrooge-like after the move).

Ho. Ho. Ho.

  1. I like him. I have some meeces which will be coming out of hiding soon and I shall have to find new homes for them as the cupboards they sat on in our last home, stayed with it. I couldn't be without a tree, a proper one.

    1. With just the two of us over Christmas we have never really bothered too much.
      Most years we went away over the Christmas and New Year period but now we are "at home" I expect I shall try harder.

  2. Love your Santa. I'd be quite satisfied with that jolly old chap.

  3. Will he be raising a glass with Elfie? I am sure he's due an appearance on here?

    1. I can't find him! He must be hiding in all those packing boxes 🙄

  5. He is a fancy Santa! I like him! He will be happy when you move and he can meet your other decorations! ;)

  6. He is a handsome looking fellow! I have one similar that I bring out each year but he is looking rather bedraggled and has almost lost his beard through too much rough handling from the grandkids.

  7. With the squirrel fur trim and the handy lamp hanging from his waist band, Santa looks like a fashionista. Can you wind him up to make him dance?

  8. His little lamp might come in handy if anymore storms come by

  9. I do try to avoid feeling 'Christmassy' too early. I like to keep to the twelve days, but Lady Magnon thinks otherwise. She always wins!

    1. We have tended to leave Christmas decorations until the weekend before 25th but I just liked the look of Santa so brought him home with me. The tree etc will wait until we move house.

  10. He is rather cute. I hope that he has got some expensive, very small presents, in his sack for you!

  11. He looks a happy chap, and very smart - definitely an upmarket Santa!
    My decorations these days consist of sprays of dead twigs covered with tiny white lights, dotted around the living room. If I can find it, I run to a wreath on the front door, which only visitors see as it's in the porch and the outer door is always closed! Not very welcoming or festive.

  12. Very nice!

    We will probably decorate next weekend. We've got strings of bubble lights bought from a friend's downsizing sale and I know Tim will be excited.

    1. I am going to wait until we move into our new house then our boxes of Christmas tat will be unpacked. Sparkly, pretty things 😉

  13. Understated, but cute. Completely understand why you are holding off. Only a week to go! 🤞

    Trying to find some Christmas spirit. Think I left it under the stairs with the decorations. The only reason I decorated last year was for my 6yr old GS who was virtual schooling at my house and expected a tree--which he decorated. Not sure I want to pull any of it out this year. Sadly bah-humbugged this year. Not sure why.

    1. Yes, it seems more difficult this year for me to get into the spirit. Paradoxically, our small town is awash with flashing lights, trees and festive froufrous!
