Christmas countdown - week 3

One week to go and Santa has been spotted.
 He made an appearance along our road the other evening.
I think Rudolph and the other reindeer must have had a day off, as Santa was travelling in a festive wooden shed on wheels.

And some more festive decorations in the form of these 'yarn bombed' posts in a local town.

Back home, I've decided to go rustic with some ivy in the dining room

and a rustic look also for the Christmas cake; marzipan stars and a jumble of dried fruit and nuts.

Just a few more things left on the 'to do' list.

Hoping your countdown to Christmas is going well.

Happy weekend.

  1. The yarn bombing was amazing, very Christmassy! I love the look of the Christmas cake, it would actually suit me so much as I am not a great lover of icing. Wishing you and yours a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Love the ivy and the Christmas cake, the marzipan stars and cherries look absolutely delish, I shall remember that for mine I think. Fabulous yarn bombing, someone's been working hard. Wishing you a good weekend. CJ xx

  3. Oh dear. Feeling guilty at being such a laggard. Cake? What cake? Yours looks splendid.

  4. Love that cake! Still the vegan version to bake and both cakes to decorate yet along with a million other tasks. I noticed the other day someone had been busy festive yarn bombing at our local railway station.

  5. Your cake looks fabulous and the yarn bombing is great... Very jolly!

  6. Mmmm - looks scrumptious! No doubt it will taste as good as it looks.

    1. Hope so! New oven meant the timing seemed all out.

  7. The cake decorations look lovely. Best wishes for the festive season!
