Putting it all together...

This morning I had a bit of a practise run, arranging some of the new and old items I have been collecting for my Vintage Christmas Boutique.

I love putting it all together ~ that eclectic mix of Christmas decorations, shabby roses, a vintage pair of shoes (who says they can't be used to add a bit of style to the festivities?) sparkling trees, mercury glass, a bit of old linen and lace, charming hand~made delights and not forgetting the odd candle...

No matter how hard I try, I just can't do minimal when it comes to Christmas!

Smoke is rising out of my sewing machine as I make more goodies to sell and the house is being spring cleaned in winter ~ save a few cobwebs that the duster can't reach and am hoping that visitors won't notice!

The biggest job still awaits ~ untangling the lights for the tree...
