Our winter decorations

Last week we finally took down the remains of last year's winter decorations and decorated our house for this winter.

Our charity shop decorations from last year were two angels and a snowman and we hung these up again this year.

Then we went charity shopping for new (secondhand) decorations and found a holly tree and two stars.

We painted gold and silver fir cones,

made bunting with fabric scraps,

made paper chains,

and some more paperchains.

Making paperchains makes Sunnyboy happy.

We made some stars too.

This year's winter decorations include Sunnyboy's glittery apples from the apple workshop and bookmark from the Winter Fair.

We also put up our tree. This was given to us at work the first Christmas we were there, because Sunnyboy liked it.
