The Little Things #1

 ~ A stocking for Rich ~

~ Presents under the tree ~

~ Tree ornaments ~ 

~ The Christmas table ~ 

~ The mother of all crackers ~ 

~ Chestnuts fill the room ~ 

~ Red sparkles ~ 

~ Homemade smoked salmon blinis ~

Sometimes just the little things put a massive smile on my face. I may do these kind of posts from time to time, maybe when I feel down or maybe when I just fancy logging memories of great things. One of my all time favourite bloggers, Emily, has her famous ‘Five Things’ posts and I have always loved the idea, so call it inspiration! 

I hope these things put a little smile on your face too.

    I love this idea, I might start doing it as well, I take so many pictures & a lot of them just sit in a folder on my laptop never to be seen again! Your Christmas decorations are so cute (:

    It looks like you had such a lovely Christmas, Lily! I looove the look of those crackers! I forgot to buy crackers this year but I have a phobia of them since I opened one and a big spider fell out of it and crawled on me! I shall go for some fancy ones like Jo Malone next time! :-) x
