Christmas wreaths, grey doors all the rage in 2014
A quick round up of Christmas wreaths so far and this year I have noticed fewer on the streets near me, is it economic?  I’m not sure as lots of people retain their wreaths for many years, maybe its still too early. One of the other changes is the number of grey painted front doors, every newly developed or refurbished house now seems to have one, it does set off a ...

New for this year are some unusual glass ornaments of the Eiffel Tower and what I think were Bison, toadstools and some ...
Muji at Xmas, always a great place for stocking fillers with quality.
I have filled my son’s christmas stocking with Muji bit’s and bobs for many years as well as buying their pop out Christmas cards. For a bit of great design at a reasonable price I don’t think they can be beaten and the quality is certainly way better than a lot of novelty items. My favourites this year are the press out card Samuri Warrior and Knight, the Scottie ...
