Pretty Things, Some little thoughts

Beautiful Finds – Christmas Baubles

All the lights are shining
So brightly everywhere
And the sound of children’s
Laughter fills the air
And everyone is singing
I hear those sleigh bells ringing
Santa won’t you bring me the one I really need
Won’t you please bring my baby to me..

Confession time.

We like Mariah a little too much. Its bordering on obsessional.

Her picture is yet to join the likes of Anton du Beke, The Queen and a giraffe in our “all the things we love” board. Bide your time Mariah, perhaps this will be your year.

We are the busy elves of the flower world, clusters of these gorgeous baubles have finally filled every corner of the shop. I cannot wait to decorate our tree.

I love buying one special bauble every year, wrapped (beautifully of course) and presented in what should be, some sort of glamourous ceremony. It is duly unwrapped and placed in prime position on the chosen tree.

Tradition is what Christmas is all about.

Buy some baubles.
