Anthropologie has ...as ever...come up with THE most charming christmas decorations or The Branch Bunch.
Being particularly partial to a badger of course I love this little chap.
And I'm definately putting this on the try myself at home list. I used to have quite a thing for old glass condiment sets. This would be a great way to re-use the old odd ones.
The felt trees and wreaths have the loveliest looking texture to them. How have they done that? Do you wrap the roving around wire?
But I think my favourite decoration is the little sailing ship. It stirs up all kinds of notions of sailing storming seas to a safe harbour with family for the holiday. And if I'm brutally honest even clearer fancies of taking off and sailing into a winter sunset away from the impending madness and possibly warmer, sunnier climes!
The little Anthropologie ship did remind me of the beautiful sailing boats made by Ann Wood.

What a fantastic find on Anne's blog ...a tutorial to make your own little paper mache sail boat. In reality I'm not sure there is going to be a crafty moment available this weekend....ah but in my head I shall definately be having a go at one of these.
Happy sailing my hearties.
