So Why Don't I ?

Small tree with toys and Hubs childhood tinsel in the kitchen



Black tree with copper baubles in the playroom



Traditional in the sitting room ( so hard to get decent tree pics)



Gorgeous poinsettia - gift from Hub



Some of the books read so far



A few of the films watched so far



Lovely, cosy warm fire ( hidden behind fireguard )



Santa says only 10 days left



So why don't I feel Christmassy?

It all looks lovely and Christmassy even if you don’t feel it.

I’m sure you will next week! My hubby would love it if I did not get so excited.

I hope you have a lovely week xxx

Kitty said...

It looks VERY Christmassy! We've watched 'Miracle on 34th Street' too. I suggested The Grinch but No.2 is still a bit scared of that one. I'll watch it on my own when they're at school this week.

Hope you manage to feel a bit more festive as the dreaded day inches closer and closer!

Oh it looks so lovley...

But not feeling like Christmas, yes I am so with you on that one, don't know what it is this year, usually by now I am filled to over flowing.

Kate said...

It all looks so Christmassy - I don't feel it yet because I am so disorganised!

Rachael Rabbit said...

Maybe because you haven't watched one of my favorite films 'Elf' which clearly states 'the best way to spread Christmas cheer is singing loud for all to hear' .... have you been singing? x

LizzieJane said...

I think a lot of us feel that way, then when you least expect it that old Christmassy feeling turns up, just hang in there.

Aw bless. Your place looks so lovely and Christmassy. I bet the kids are getting excited. I'm sure the Christmas feeling will come soon. I am off out shortly to go and get some ingredients for some Christmas presents... will post about them soon. Have a good week x

driftwood said...

it's becuase your Christmas trees are the wrong way up, J just came home from san francisco saying all the trees were hung upside down from the ceiling........

Shirl said...

Catching up, seems ages since I've dropped by. I love your knitted animals and Milo's cards are so sweet. Your house looks lovely and Christmassy and what a gorgeous swap. I love the Waldorf doll.

I am sure you will feel Christmassy soon. I started to feel Christmassy once the decorations went up. Your house certainly looks festive to me!

Ragged Roses said...

I think because we all feel that there is so much more to be done before Christmas and none of us have really started to relax into it yet ... Enjoy your lovely trees, they are so difficult to photograph, I gave up on mine

Yes fondant fancies have definitely shrunk!

Hmm, Christmas can be a tricky one can't it? Sometimes rather mixed feelings are bimbling around the old noggin. I've been finding Miss P1 has made me feel more Christmassy than I would otherwise have felt - the little ones can unmask the hidden festive spirit.

Adrienne said...

You are so decorated! Most of my stuff is still in the boxes all over the dinning and living rooms! ugh. Not feeling too much Christmas cheer over here either ... I'm trying to slow down and just enjoy.

Sarahs Home said...

Please thank M for the lovely card he sent me, I love it. Can you email me your address so that I can send the children one.. It really made my day,

Alison Boon said...

Well perhaps your Christmas feeling is hiding among the beautiful decorations somewhere.

French Knots said...

Your decorations look very festive, I'm sure the Christmassy feelng will arrive soon too. I don't feel it yet either but that's coz I've got the fluey virus that my son has too, at this rate the cards will be sent in the New Year!

Suzie Sews said...

checking in to see if that christmas feel has kicked in yet? Hope your OK.

Have a lovely 'Christmassy' week-end.

upstateLisa said...

Miss sew n sew said...

You should do blimey with three lovely Christmas trees we only have the one!
Bet Milo is enjoying his festive books and films maybe over the weekend you might find your Christmas spirit. My Christmas cards are from Phoenix Trading I do have some left over if you send me your address I'll send you one so that you can frame it.

Oh this is a sad post ... are you OK???? Just think of Santa in his shorts!

Dancin' Puffin said...

Love the header change. Very in keeping with the seasons. I've left you a little tag over at Dancin' Puffin.

Nikki said...

It certainly looks more CHristmassy at your house than it does at mine. And we're in the middle of Summer (albeit a cool one). Perhaps you need to drink mulled wine or eggnog? That might bring on the xmas cheer...?

Carol said...

I am sure that you will get the feeling soon...once it gets to christmas eve you can do no more, but just enjoy - or try!
Your trees look lovely and very festive.
You will be ok soon...big hugs to you.
