“He who has not Christmas in his heart will never find it under a tree.”
― Roy L. Smith

It seemed fitting that I should save the decorations and the general Christmas spirit in the house until today. I’ve given teasing sort of insights into the decor this Christmas in the background of many of my still life shots lately, but I haven’t actually taken the shots that I’ve been itching to take since they went up.

It’s Christmas Day – so here they are! We have Christmas decorations in every room, whether it’s subtle or quite a big statement. I love everything we put up at Christmas, it’s traditional, cosy and festive.

We also have a real tree, which spikes me when I try and check what my presents might be! But yes, I love the smell of Christmas Trees even though they make me sneeze, this one this year has dropped a lot of branches and needles already. I don’t think it’ll last much longer!

The fireplace is a huge focal point of the sitting room. The stockings hang there, the swag of lights sit nicely above the fireplace and the reindeer on the top are candle holders that glow perfectly in the evenings – it’s fantastic.

“They have a nice life, trapped inside a perfect world.”

I know that the snowglobe has been done before, but this time – IT’S MOVING! With the help of William, or with him mostly doing all the after – work, I have a GIF! It was something I’ve wanted to do for a long time and was largely inspired by a recent piece of work by DragonFly-oli on deviantART.

I picked the setting (dining room table) and the props – a table runner that is rather wintery and a candle holder with foliage surrounding it. The lighting was already perfect, so we set up the tripod, got the remote shutter and snapped away.

Of course, I’ve included some stills so that I’m in keeping with the photo-a-day challenge too. Enjoy and Happy – almost – Christmas!!!
