Christmas spew

Well my friends it seems to be almost that time of year again.
And right now there looks like a tinsel monster was slaughtered in my living room.
And just before he died he spewed baubles all over the place.
My husband is on late shift,he will freak as you all know glitter and tinsel to him are like kryptonite to superman.Unfortunately he married me and therein lies his problem as i shall NEVER give up my glitter and tinsel its the magic i tell you.
So after posting this i am gonna start mopping up the spew and trying to uncover our home beneath the shambles.Most of my ornaments are treasured vintage ones.some are out and out retro ones to remind me of my 60's childhood.I am a child at Christmas its in my heart its in my hands when i create.But oooh the mess.I mean face it i love the bits of tinsel that drop off the tree as i love the purple carpet on the lawn left from the jacaranda tree.One side of me is miss neat freak the other is the creative messy bossy one who usually wins.Thank god i have both or i don't care to imagine.Aww well better go clear a path before superman gets home!
