B is for.....

.....Bertram!

Who has come to live with us for Christmas. But then again a red flock reindeer isn't just for Christmas is it. And it won't need to go walkies at stupid o'clock in the morning...





While New Things were creeping into the house, I realised I had always wanted needed a good ol' bit of Catholic Kitsch. Look who was waiting for me in the window of Paperchase. A glittery Mary!!!





Um, can anyone see a 2nd reindeer?

Oh yes, Paperchase always comes into its own at this time of year. All kinds of Christmas kitsch. Who's Bertram's glittery blue friend, I like him.

I was REALLY BAD in Paperchase.... not just the Mary, but some sequinned birds (will use them for YEARS, so investment purchase, ha ha), some glittery fircones (whatever happened to paint-yer-own?).... a...n...d .... Norris the Blue Reindeer. Will try to stay out of the shops next time there's a public sector strike and the 12 year old wants a day out... ;) x

I saw the branches with the lights on them behind the glittery Mary...still haven't found the blasted tree..and I asked KRs again and he said he hasn't moved it..so guess I'll just get some branches and put some lights on them..you've heard of things going bump in then night...our stuff goes bumping out the door to nevereverland...

Hi, yes I'm a big fan of Paperchase. I have the flock reindeer in pink which I bought some years ago now. I also have a flock polar bear, some glittery penguins (rather like your glittery reindeer and Mary) and a pink feathery peacock (I think that's what it is anyway!). A handy tip: last year, I bought wrapping paper, Xmas cards and the glitter penguins in the Paperchase sale after Xmas - they were dead cheap. I never normally buy things like that in sales but they were such brilliant bargains, I just had to! xx

You know I love your Mary Ms T Sparkle, pity a sparkly baby Jesus wasn't available then you'd have your own sparkly nativity!

I could almost start celebrating Xmas with glorious kitschy decorations like that...how fab!
Mind you, I'm such a slattern I'd leave them up all year round gathering even more dust. x
