WOYWW Short and Sweet ...

... and I'm not talking about me!! LOL!

Suddenly realised it's gone midnight (Tue) and I haven't written a post. Our house is only small, so no room for vignettes, dioramas, or other large scale decorations. So it's just a tree with a few little pretties hung around the place


and some festive cushion covers, which give instant ho-ho-ho, without taking up a lot of room. Note one cat asleep on Mum's stocking


before finally settling down on one under the tree

I'm just making sure Santa doesn't forget me!
Nothing much to show on the crafting front - the minion now has all his limbs, but no clothes, and the Christmas cards should be finished this week (I'll post pics next WOYWW). 

Anyway, I must go up to bed before DH comes looking for me. Catch you later at Julia's for our weekly cuppa and catch up. New to WOYWW? Click the button on my side bar to be transported across the globe, looking at some amazing crafting. 

Have a great week, folks. Hugs xx

  3. Love your tree and cushions!
    I started doing my tree last night, as KL is home for a flying visit ( I've had to put all my crafting away and am now feeling slightly panicy about finishing everything) and wanted to put the tree up. She has now realised that although it's good fun to decorate the house, it's also hard work! Must finish it this morning as we are collecting the ' new' furniture from my Mum's this afternoon.

  4. Ah the cushions are a wonderful addition; your tree looks gorgeous. Am a bit vexed by the though of a naked Minion, so am glad that you didn't expose him!!

  7. Hi Chris, your tree and cushions look lovely and brighten the room. My cats too will always find the new surface to curl up on, even the paper instructions from the dress pattern I'm working on. Enjoy your week Cheers RobynO#27

  9. A pretty tree and the cats make it all cosy! I was just watching a TV show about cats on Animal Planet. Stress is optional. Cuteness is not. That's what I remember from it! Have a nice day! patsy

  11. Hi Chris, love the pillows. And the stockings clearly have the feline seal of approval! Lovely tree. We have quite small rooms- its an old Victorian house- so used to end up with the tree taking over, lol. We stick with a smaller one too now. Have a great week, Hugs, Shaz #11 xxx

  14. I don't have masses of decorations either, but what I do have, I love. Those baubles that bring back special memories etc etc. I think your festive cushions are fab and bring joy instantly! The cat sleeping on various things made me smile :-)

  23. Hi Chrysalis, your tree looks lovely and I love your festive cushions ... I'm a great fan of Christmas cushions too. Don't you just love how a cat can make itself comfy in the most unlikely places. My Bonnie had a trip to the vet yesterday, her ear is causing her problems again so she had to have another two injections and it seems she will have to have them every two months for the rest of her life, poor thing. Needless to say, she's slept practically all day :) Have a good week. Elizabeth x #53

  27. Your tree is so pretty! We just purchased a 4.5' tree and will get rid of the 7' one as I'm tired of all the decorating by myself. Love the sleeping kitty! Thanks for popping by and Happy WOYWW!

  28. It's simply beautiful! I guess you need to get your kitty a stocking of his own. Blessings!

  29. Love your cushions - what good idea - not much room here either! Love the way the cat has improvised to find a comfy spot!! Thanks for visiting, Chris49

  30. Hi Chris, thanks for stopping by. Great kitty pic! And the tree looks lovely too!

  31. I guess it was silly to hope there might be a Minion doll here :D Funny thing, DD insisted on watching the movie just last night. I usually start my knockers on 3 stitches per needle (end of a short I-cord) and it does my head in EVERY time.

    I love the cushions. When the kids were little and we were here, with the Grandparents all back in the States, I used to make them cushions each year (well, for about 3 or maybe 4) that had a hand print from each of them (just cut from fabric and appliqued around, then embroidered their names and the year) and every time we go home and I see those little handprints it just makes me well up. Soppy old cow that I am....


    Happy happy day-after WOYWW!

  36. Happy WOYWW ! Thank you for dropping by and leaving me a lovely "blog hug"! I have not heard of that book about the Pope. It must make for interesting reading indeed! Your tree and pillows look lovely. I must get our tree up this week!
    Wishing you all the best during this blessed season!
