The First Signs of Christmas

So it has started.

Last year I bought the Christmas trees around this time but it proofed unsuccessful, because by the time it was Christmas the branches looked sad and it was raining needles. So this year I’m going to wait for another 2 weeks. I’ve started decorating the outside of the house instead.

This is the back porch we use in winter as the other kitchen doors lead straight into the kitchen and turns the kitchen into a freezer. This is also the “pet door” as I like to call it. It goes straight into the back garden where Whopper wanders around and were Moose goes in and out.

Like every year I’ve made a garden leftover wreath on a straw wreath base. In January I can compost the whole wreath, it’s perfect.

This year instead of drawing a wreath on my doors I’ve decide to cut them out on a plotting machine.

I’ve actually plotted a whole bunch and you can buy one for just €8 shipping included in my Etsy Blog Shop. This way you can add some Christmas to your doors, windows or walls.
