When is toooooo early......?!!!

Hi everyone,  does anyone else share my dilema?  When is it too early to set up the Christmas tree?
Many shops have had their Christmas decorations out and about for a couple of months now!
This year seems to have gone so quickly, and I can't decide where to put my tree, so I have decided not to have my big tree like last year, and to improvise.....
What do you think of my improvisation?

I'm thrilled with the end result of the baubles in the oversized brandy balloon.... noooo, I didn't drink the contents first.... 'hick' (hiccups) :)

The train I added to my collection of decorations a few years ago, and yes, some more of my Christmas mice :)

Reading material....

Hi everyone, I hope you all had a lovely weekend.
I realise with Christmas approaching, time to read may be short, but you might like to make a note of this book.....
On Rue Tatin  by Susan Loomis
Since I first read this book, and looked at the site, there has been some changes, and the site is more about her cooking, and cooking classes, but the book is about how she ventured into cooking as a career, moving to France, and her career since arriving.  
I often read books once, and that's it, but I would read this book again. :)  The book also includes recipes.  It's probably a good one to relax with after Christmas. 
Happy reading,  Jenny

Hi everyone, its' been a while, so I thought you might like to see some lovely stitcheries I have come across....
There is a theme to this post, so first, you could try this one, or for a new challenge, you could try this one. 
The theme wouldn't be complete without this visitor, or maybe this, I'm not going to tell you the!
I'm sorry I didn't find them earlier for you, but you can now save them or start getting ready for next year. :)
Happy crafting,  Jenny
