Xmas Baubles

Xmas shopping is in full swing. Take your pick; the high street shops or the festive Xmas markets. The markets really win me over this time of year. The smells of seasonal food and drink and the sense of fun and frivolity. I'm still not brave enough to touch the glass baubles though after a tremendously spectacular explosion at Conran's last year involving a rather large and expensive glass decoration that I just happened to nudge eek

When I've been to London during this time of year, I've always enjoyed the Christmas shop at Fortnum & Mason's. I still have a wonderful ornament that I bought there.

Those are lovely baubles! They would make for some fancy, elegant Christmas decorations! I love the Christmas markets!

Those are lovely Christmas balls! I broke something in a store once too, it was horribly embarrassing, but it was a poorly made candelabra with lots of glass candle holders in it and they didn't make me pay for it or anything because I actually wasn't the first person to break one.

Hi Mo,

Great composition!
I like the mix in colours.

I never tough anything when shopping, because I am such a clumpsy person....

Best regards
Asta

Pretty glass baubles-bubbles! They must look fantastic on trees with lights.

You caused an explosion? Eek is right. I always try to avoid glassware sections everywhere.
