Ok, so when I left you last we had a fair list of tasks to complete. We were writing lists like crazy. Well, I've definitely been doing that!
You should have your advent calendar on the go now. I found a gorgeous one at a vintage fair and the rest of my family are munching on chocolates, from the wooden one we bring out each year.
I have all my Christmas cards written, addressed and stamps are attached. If you are not there yet, don't forget to look at my Vintage Vic vintage and handmade cards, both in my Etsy shop and on Ebay...

I am also well on the way to having my Christmas gifts bought and I have wrapping paper and ribbons standing by! If you are a bit stuck, try on-line sites...

So, there are about two and a half weeks left before the big day! DON'T PANIC!!

Probably best to get those cards in the post soon and don't forget to check last posting dates on International post.

Try to get your wrapping paper ready now and Christmas Crackers, depending on where in the world you are.

Dig out the Christmas tableware, cloth, napkins, crockery, cutlery etc Check for damage and wash ready for use. This year we are using our lovely Paragon Victoriana Rose Crockery, that I have been collecting for 2 or 3 years now, piece by piece.

Do you have your candles?

Now is a good time to go through your decorations, if they are not already up. Check bulbs on lights. Do you have enough ornament hooks? I never do!

Plan your menus, particularly for big days with guests to cater for. You can get the non perishables now and maybe place orders for things such as turkey etc for collection or delivery later.

That's probably enough to be thinking about for now!
