I am slowly getting into the Christmas spirit, I decorated the tree last night and had the usual nightmare with the Christmas lights a lot of the bulbs have stopped working and are not replaceable, so am going to to have to nip out this afternoon and get some new ones. I have also put the Christmas wreath on the front door, however mine is not a patch on these one's, I saw these pop up on Wee Birdy's blog the other day and I think they are gorgeous. I really miss fresh cut flowers, here in our rural, mountainous corner of France, the florists in the local town are a bit hit and miss and don't get me started on the flowers on offer in the local supermarket, they are crap, they have already wilted in the shop. It's no wonder the local garden centres do a roaring trade in silk flowers.
When we go to Belle Mere's in Provence the fresh flowers are beautiful, fresh and inexpensive, I buy armfuls of them for Belle Mere. I think when I nip out to the garden centre to get the lights I will also purchase a few Amaryllis and Orchids in pots just so I can get my Christmas flower fix.
Never, ever try to dismantle existing fairy lights off an already decorated tree, I am now attempting to put the new lights on, I am currently tangled up in ten metre fairy lights and very frustrated, not to mention the dislodged ribbons and bouncing baubles!
Wishing you all a wonderful weekend
