Just as Festive as I get

I no longer have a tree…too much of a trip hazard. So a ton of cards and these critters. Oh, and a miniature tree on the mantelpiece

Linked to Six Word Saturday at Debbie’s here


  1. That would do for me, but my wife likes a ‘bit more’. So, a 7-foot fake tree with built in lights, covered in various baubles. Two ‘candle ladder’ illuminations in the living room windows, and a pile of presents around the tree so large, I can hardly reach over to open the curtains.
    Best wishes, Pete.

  2. What an inspiring new tradition – the same “Christmas tree” every year!
    The endless miles of monoculture, the pesticide laden pine trees that are grown only to be cut down and sold as dead trees for Christmas, is unethical and anachronistic!

  3. My sentiment…. but we do have tree and a few more decorations plus lights on a tree outside. The excuse (reason) is that it’s for the grandkids when they visit 🎅🤶👼

  4. I love the little mouse too!! 😀 😀

  5. He’s a very happy snowman, Sue. Nice companion!

  6. To each his own! I’ve got an artificial tree which makes an appearance each year with baubles and tinsel, coloured lights and a Christmas star at the top. I just like a bit of bling at least once a year, a time when I can put spangly bits all over the place and channel the real me!!!

  7. Such a happy snowman, he made me smile back at him. Have a peaceful Christmas Sue.

  8. I had done away with a tree for a few years but now the grandchildren are clammering for one. I always try each year to start early with decorations and end up jamming it all in the last week or days before Christmas Eve. This is year is no exception – I had it all planned and then my husband and I contracted a bad cold and everything was on hold for an entire week. I still feel blaaaaaahhh but I have to get it organised before the 23rd when the grandchildren arrive.

  9. Very nice, Sue. Just enough to set the mood 🙂

  10. I loved it when you showed me yesterday, and love it even more today because now I can see just how fluffy he is! Hope you watch The Snowman over Christmas xx

  11. LOOOOVVVVE your snowman Sue!!! I have a small tree on a table. No tripping involved!

  12. Love your thingies, Sue! Most of all the mouse – and I almost would prefer your little tree as well…because this year my husband did not manage to find a decent tree from his own forest. I sent him back for a new one – but that one was even WORSE. …Merry Christmas, Sue!

  13. These are lovely and fun! I wish you a merry Christmas, Sue ❤

  14. I think that tree is very pretty.

  15. I see a tree! But I hear you – no life-size trees for us either … Wishing you the best for the year ahead! may it be filled with good health & fun discoveries!

  16. I put up my little tree this year to try to pretend all was the same and bring some cheer. I baked Nick’s traditiional Greek cookies and it snowed too. All things I love but still an emptyness. I’m trying though.
