The SSCS 2014 parcel arrived this weekend, all the way from Australia! (Unfortunately, a nasty stomach bug also arrived, leaving 2/3rds of this household off the radar for the past couple of days - thus no blogging until now..)
|The "save for later" parcels - I'll be a good girl!|
The ornament was opened right away - and I absolutely love it!
|Gorgeous fabric on the back.|
|Love the rat/mouse!|
I wonder if my Secret Santa knew that we used to keep pet rats a few years ago? I'd like to think of this cute, little critter as a Christmas rat - with a gingerbread man and a glittery parcel in each paw.
Thank you thank you thank you, wonderful and talented Anette - I'm eagerly awaiting Christmas Eve! (I've chosen to save the second little parcel until the 24th too.. even if I am curious.)
|Testing the lights on the tree.|
We (Peder and I) managed to decorate (and clean.. well, _I_ did the cleaning) on Sunday while hubby went climbing (indoor climbing wall). Took us about 3 hours - with the cleaning and negotiation around why we were not going to use the easter decorations (even though they were for hanging) - but the apartment is now nice and Christmas-y
|Our little, but well-decorated tree.|
I'll see if I can't get some good photo light and share some snapshots from around our little home and our decorations later this week (more like closer to or during this weekend).
