Celestine has been busily preparing for Christmas this week. She has put up her tree in the castle entrance hall. The castle isn't finished yet but the entrance hall is finished enough to have a tree in it! Celestine is so pleased with her tree that she can't stop looking at it. Every night the castle windows start flashing as Celestine turns the tree fairylights on and off and on and off... and on and off! She just can't help herself! She loves to see those lights twinkling.
She had a lot of fun decorating her tree. This year the theme was multicoloured (last year it was silver) Multicoloured is much more festive. There was glitter everywhere!
She also started to make a fairy to go on top of the tree but it looks sort of funny. In the end a gold star was the winner.
Christmas cards have started arriving at the castle...
Victoria Stitch sent two cards- the two in the middle. A bat in a Christmas hat and a portrait of herself. Well she is rather vain.
Henry made mince pies the other night and when he came upstairs he had a tiny one for Celestine too. It was on a chocolate coin foil plate. Celestine was extremely pleased.
Also here is Celestine's advent calendar this year. I didn't have time to paint a picture myself so used one of the Snowman. I do adore the snowman though and so does Celestine so it's all good. I am reeeally looking forward to watching the Snowman and the Snowdog this year as I was in Dubai last year for Christmas and missed it. By the time I got home from Dubai Christmas was over and it didn't feel appropriate to watch such a chrsitmassy thing. Now I am glad I still have it to look forward to this year!
Anyway, Celestine has very much enjoyed opening the doors of her calendar every day this month.
That's almost all! It's been a very picture heavy post. I just can't stop taking photo's of the tree that's why! Here's one more...
Hope you're having a lovely December so far- can't believe there's only about two weeks left until Christmas!
