As I have said before, Autumn is a favourite season of mine.  I love my big, cosy jumpers and boots and getting wrapped up to go out on a crisp, dry day (I hate the rain).

It's such a pretty time, we have had some amazing sunrises in Berkshire, I have seen some great photos.  I wish I had taken some too, although my photography skills leave a lot to be desired.

I have also written before about my love of twinkly lights, both indoors and outdoors, which I have all year around, but at Christmas I like to add a few more, so I can't wait to do that.

Someone posted a picture on Facebook of their Christmas tree that's already up.  I can understand after last Christmas, how this year we may want to make up for that, although for my tree, 1st December is always the date I put mine up.  I am so keen to get a real tree this year, although I am a little worried that by New Year's Eve, which is when I take it down, it make have drooped and look a little sorry for itself, but I have set my heart on it, especially as I love the smell of a real tree, it really does say Christmas!

When do you put your tree up?

Don't forget, if you are looking for a special gift this year, I am offering a 10% Discount on my Handmade Sterling Silver Jewellery collection.  Just use Code XMAS21 at checkout.
