The Festivity Begins

Thought I'd share some festive tidbits from Muckle Bousta. We don't usually get a tree this early but both of my kids have been ill this week and needed some cheering up! I have to admit to being a bit nervous that we wouldn't find a real Xmas tree up here where as you can see there is a distinct lack of the things! But of course they were imported (probably from Norway) and we picked one up at the supermarket!
We unearthed some of my parents old decorations and added a few of our own to make it a particulary Shetland tree: Some old glass floats, a puffin, a shetland pony and some felted fish!
We also added a freshly made felted goddess as the tree topper.....I like the crooked crown she has....too much Xmas punch already!

And Maya and I are both whizzing up the Xmas knits!

Love the photo collage and seeing a glimpse of Maya. Can't wait til Josie comes home on Saturday so I can share it with her. She knows that January will be here soon and is counting down the sleeps to see all of you. I get to take David to the airport in the morning and I realize I'm feeling excited for all of you that you'll soon be together again.

Oh I am in love with those decorations. As you saw on my blog I made some of my own this year...but that fish...that is so cute. All those decorations have a cozy folksy look. Beautiful.
