T for change

I didn't leap out of bed to make the changes this morning. I don't think they're that important. But I really enjoy them and hey, its one month out of twelve, so it's not strictly over the top. What changes? Ah, gentle reader, in eleven months you've been able to forget that I like to insinuate Christmas onto our household. We don't decorate or put the tree up for a while yet, so I have to find other things to help with the anticipation.
So this morning, before I'd had breakfast, actually, I started. Our Christmas bedding is on. There's only one set, so I use it the first week, settle for 'normal' the second week and then it's back on in time for THE week. Loo rolls were changed - the new ones are printed with stars. Handwash is new, apparently 'scented with festive berries'. And, most pleasingly for me, the everyday crockery gets a holiday for the holidays.
Yes, I have Christmas crockery and I love it. I also have snowflake embossed cutlery. I brought the cutlery from Target whilst visitng my sister, years ago. I wish I'd brought two sets! Now I've emptied and rearranged various cupboards and am drinking my coffee from a Christmas mug which has just sneaked in to the photo, I feel entitled to share with you on T day, administered by Elizabeth. I recommend you visit her too, I'm not the only one with Christmas crockery! Oh and PS..not sure about the handwash..but at least its not cinnamon.....

Oh my, I am green as a cabbage... cutlery just for Crimbo??? LOL... I have Christmas china but no cutlery and the loo rolls are plain white... and my decs aren't up yet... I think the idea of china for the month is brilliant... maybe I could do it for the last two weeks instead of just Chrimbo day! LOL

Ooh! It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas! Need to work on T for Christmas crockery although I do have a mug! Chrisx

I love the idea of having special utensils for the whole month. I have a Christmas table cloth that my mother embroidered, and we normally put up a tree. That is about the extent of it. And when we were living in the UK we had external lights.
Well have lots of fun decorating your house,
Happy T-Day,
Lisca

I love your Christmas crockery Julia.
I have a few Christmas pieces but not a whole set. Mind you, I do have loads of Christmas mugs, there is my snowflake bedding & Christmas angel scatter cushions that will go on the bed for Christmas and I'm already wearing my Christmas PJs (I have several sets). I can also say that this year I will be having Christmas toilet rolls - I bought them last year, put them away and forgot all about them so they are standing ready for the next roll replacement.

I adore the fact that even though you don't get your tree for awhile, you still find a way to make your home festive and bright with the Christmas spirit. It certainly gets me in the mood to decorate. I'm super impressed that you have special toilet paper. I used to have lots of it, but used it all over the years. It always made a great statement.

Thanks for sharing your Christmas cups (and other goodies) with us for T this Tuesday. BTW, I linked you.
