Our first Cornish Christmas....a much smaller tree this year (in a pot so hopefully will be able to keep it alive until next Christmas???). Lots of the decorations are handmade this time...several pom poms ( I need one of those gadgets myself!) DAS 'clay' snowflakes & stars, paint & silver leaf on wooden birds & free paper bunting from Homemaker magazine. No more mice have appeared from the box of old decorations & the cats have been content with their new knitted versions (thank you Alison Dupernex!). Looking forward to another 2 days off before we open the shop again & enjoy the New Year visitors to St Ives!
