A bit of Christmas Cheer!

Like a squirrel with an acorn, over the past few months I had been collecting Christmas ornaments and hiding them away! Of course, with how busy we had been getting other areas of the house finished, we only just got the Christmas decorations up over the past few days! Normally I would have things up a couple of weeks before Christmas, but this year we had to wait. Below are a few shots around the front sitting room (Christmas central). This is mostly so some of the friends and family (near and far...Ireland!) who cannot be here with us, can have a peek!

View of front sitting room through TV room - Christmas music on TV of course (haven't been able to find the fireplace channel like years past!).

Grumpy cat pouting after being told off for chewing on the Christmas tree...he is also hating the shag rugs so much!

Christmas ornament thanks to Jane in York!

Christmas ornament from my mum, brought back from Holland...weighs so much  we nearly had to reinforce a branch!

Last minute dash to the local Value Village and I found these ornaments 50% off! Even with so much going on at the last minute, I found the time to get my thrift store fix!

A few Christmas cards - one from Ballinagree (Macroom, Co. Cork, Ireland!) sitting in front of  the map of Southern Ireland (need to get the map framed in the new year). Bonus: naked lamp in the corner getting festive!

Of course we had to have this Christmas needle point when we saw it!
