With the blind down, it’s much easier to make out!
I’d spotted the branches, because they looked quite bleached on my way into town, and I thought “I’m going to ‘ave me some of them!”
After I’d helped myself to two suitably sized branches and got them home I suddenly thought what on earth am I going to put them in to keep them standing upright, and then I remembered a couple of bottles I found from Ikea, filled with water they could take the weight of the branches and the baubles I planned to put on them.
I’ve hung cerise pink, turquoise and silver jingle bells from Poundland and some tiny, clear, glass baubles I got in a Hobbycraft sale about six years ago, if not more, I always knew that they would come in one day!
In the evening the window sill is cast in a shadow, so I am now looking for one of those flat battery operated downlighters to put behind it. I could kick myself as I had a couple (£1 for two) in my old craftroom before I dismantled it, still I think I may have seen some in Home Bargains. I do miss my Poundshops here!
