I don't like xmas. I'm not going to go on about it, because I know that most of the bloggers I follow love it and do it wholeheartedly, but I don't and so my favourite time of the year is just beginning.
There are many benefits to not "doing" xmas, but one I really noticed this year was that while most people were prowling the aisles of the supermarkets being super-organised with huge lists, the charity shops were almost empty.
Although I've yet to find a candle that really fits well in them, I still love these Dansk candle holders. They sit on the window ledge halfway up my stairs, and everyone who passes them re-arranges them. The two I bought last week will just allow more permutations.
I was attracted to this little vase, and thought the embossed pattern was very Hornsea-like. It's stamped Withernsea Eastgate, and a bit of Googling revealed that Eastgate is just down the coast from Hornsea, and Eastgate pottery bought a lot of Hornsea's old moulds from them.
I hope everyone who celebrates xmas had a good one.
