A combination of work, wisdom tooth pain and a restless dog conspired against me and I didn't have time.
It's a bit late but here is this week's wishlist of expensive goodies themed, fittingly, around festive decorations.
This Chinese Hand-Painted Cranes Glass Bauble from the V&A Shop is beautiful and delicate. I love the colours and the Oriental theme, which I wouldn't normally associate with Christmas, but that I think works.
This would look lovely on the tree, but any more than one and I'll be bankrupting myself.
The Candle Holder
This pair of Leaping Reindeer Tealight Holders has a rustic look that would work with a minimalist Christmas décor scheme as well as a traditional one. I love that even though they are simple, they are also beautiful.
This Christmas Berry Wreath from Velvet Brown has a classic feel. I'm not a fan of the really modern wreaths that are made from lights, bits of metal or fur (I did see a fur one once, why would you put that on your door?). I like to see a wreath with a bit of greenery.
This one features festive greens and reds, plus the traditional pine cones, berries and cinnamon.
Price: from £59
These little guys caught my eye. They're not exactly traditional but I think these Octopus Christmas Decorations would brighten up a tree.
Price: £14.99 for one.
That's all folks.
I really will try and post on time next week.
