My magic elf Dianne came over today to help me with the outdoor entertaining area
She brought a box full of goodies as I just don’t have enough
We made nine of these with the big red pine cones and attached them to one side
We had to do an emergency run back to her house as she has a lovely stapler that attaches things to timber beautifully
On the other side we needed 12 branches we didn’t have anymore pine cones so we made these up
We ran out of the branches so she will make up the other nine and come back to put them up.
She’s a little treasure and I love her
This was mine from last time dianne added the red flowers to make it look a little fuller
I bought the lamps a few years ago
And I made the Santa tree last year
Dianne added the garlands on the top beam
During the year I saw these Santa and Rudolph fades that peer over the fence
But they’re only plastic fantastic and who knows how long they will last
Cute as they are I decided I wanted wooden ones
As luck would have it a family in the next street over make and sell them!
I didn’t realise as I haven’t been past their place for ages, thanks covid!
Claire our other swim friend lives in the same street and told Dianne about it.
So we dashed over and purchase these
How cute are they?
They also have an elf and a grinch I think I might wander over and grab those as well and have them lined up along the fence
So that was our day today
The weather has improved dramatically
The sun is shining and the temps are going up
We actually got rather warm working out there
The countdown to Christmas has begun
Only three more weeks!
I think I’ve got it all under control
Well I hope so anyway lol
