Saturday

A sparkly, Christmas is near

Last Sunday, I popped on the train to London with Ma'ma and her Mr. We went straight to Islington to a quaint little Patisserie, where we consumed cups of Tea and dusted almond and chocolate pastries for breakfast. Then we ambled down the road to the Country Living Christmas Fair for some pure Christmas inspiration.
The fair had some beautiful gift ideas and the most stunning decorations. I wanted to buy so many pretty glass baubles and candles and ceramics. I also wanted to buy some beautiful Christmas home wear that was a little different from the traditional. Susie Watson Designs have brought out a wonderful duck egg blue Christmas collection. The pretty theme not only has the blue running through it, but creams and a constant hint of Christmas red, with a mixture of polka dots and horizontal stripes. So sweet.
Lots of vintage items were for sale on a number of stalls. Teeny glass bottles, china Teacup and saucer sets, old toys. I really wished I had a purse full of pennies, I would have filled my satchel with teeny tiny glass bottles and vintage pearl buttons.
After a lovely day at the fair, we took ourselves on the big red bus to Oxford street to see the Christmas lights. We paid a visit to a couple of shops with all their Christmas inspiration and stunning decorations. Ma'ma bought lots of wonderful treats for the December celebrations. I am so excited. Even more than ever!
I had such a wonderful time. I also realised that I need to do alot of Christmas shopping and researching. I am not even quite sure what I might ask Father Christmas for this year. I have been looking forward to this time for such a long time now, yet I am so unprepared! I have been listening to Wham! Last Christmas on repeat though... I love it! Are you little ones prepared? What have you asked Father Christmas for?
