A Little Thrifting....Decorating...and Gardening

I found the time to visit an Op-shop further away and was lucky enough to find this lovely old pyjama bag


Visited a beautifully decorated "Wheel and Barrow " shop...all in white and silver Christmas decorations and Mr VL bought this pair of trees which sparkle in candlelight

YAY!!! gifts have all been wrapped.....

......and front door wreath hung ....
........icicle lights hung outside....
...filled old silver bowls with pine,rosemary and bay
..and trying to nurse my flowers,herbs through the heat until Christmas day
