Antlers and Eskimos

The decorations have been in the shops for at least a month now, perhaps it is down to the commercialisation of Christmas that there is an increasing trend towards more simple and natural festive decorations.  This year, I am thinking rustic, white and cosy with a sprinkle of  silver magic and a few quirky twists.

This Christmas tree by John Lewis is perfect for giving a woodland Scandinavian flavour to proceedings, although I may just get hold of some real branches and give them a spray of  white. And how sweet is the Eskimo snow globe from Graham & Green?

These three guesso wooden stars by Cox & Cox are iconic and festive but simple enough to be displayed all year round.

I love the striking and earthy stag antlers from Horny Beasts but as I basically grew up in Bradgate Park where deer roam freely, the mortality of it is a bit too close to home and I think they may give us all the eeby jeebies. As an alternative, I am considering this chap from Graham and Green, I can imagine he would look lovely festooned with fairy lights. Just need to think of a name for him…
