It has been a busy week started my Christmas shopping there is nothing I like more than ticking a present off a list.

I do not belong to the people who enjoy Christmas Eve shopping.  I prefer to have a relaxed day in grafton street watching everyone panicking and enjoying the atmospher.

We do not put up our Christmas tree until after the 7th of December it is considered to be bad luck.

But I do sneak in the odd item. I bought these two cushions in penneys and they make me smile every time I go by.

Some people have a shoe fetish I must admit I have a Christmas stocking fetishing only realised when I took the 20 stockings out.  Speaking of shoes aren't these sandals so beautiful. I do not know if I could walk in them but I would love looking at them.  

Hope you Christmas preparations are going well and Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

Penneys best

Just a small selection

Loving these colourful roses at the moment

So beautiful

The perfect dress for the sandals

A touch of sparke.

Have a lovely week


  1. I have sneaked in a few bits too your sparkle cushion,I may have to buy another one now:) Enjoy your weekend!

  2. Good luck with the Christmas preparations, all the photos are eye-catching Inge! I certainly coudn't walk on these sandals and this dress is simply gorgeous!

  3. Dear Inge, the cushions are very much "en mode" - I have one too and I think they are lovely BUT I have never seen one like that sparkling reindeer! Very suitable for the season... In Switzerland we do not have the tradition with the stockings. Still I was planning to sew some and hang them up but somehow it has stayed only a plan... The shoes are gorgeous and the dress - oh my goodness! - I am one of those women who are practical - I need to be able to walk fast and run around so no way with them but I love seeing others wearing them! In Switzerland we only put up the tree on 24th December. We celebrate Christmas on December 24th in the evening. Have fun and enjoy this wonderful and special season! CHrista

  4. I hadn't heard about the bad luck if you put the tree up before the 7th December but anyway we usually wait until the middle of December. Your cushions are cute and those shoes are amazing! I agree that it's so satisfying ticking the presents off the list and I've already bought a few. I'm definitely more organised than last year!!

  5. Pretty cushions! I love those sandals!
    Have a wonderful weekend, dear Inge!!!:)))

    Besos, desde España, Marcela♥

  6. Dear Inge,i love your christmas cushions!!!And those shoes!!!
    Have a relaxing weekend!!Hugs!!!
    My love to Ireland!!

  7. My fave is the sparkly cushion no doubt, soooo pretty! I managed to persuade hubby to start decorating today (hurray!), and the tree is now in its place and the fairy lights up *smug* - LUV this time of the year :-) Happy weekend x

  8. I didn't know it's bad luck to put up the Xmas tree before 7th December. All the malls would be having so much bad luck. =) I would buy a Christmas tree when I get my own home.

    Really? That's such a coincidence. Hahaha... He isn't really a techie person. He was simply sold by the wireless and speaker-less surround sound technology. Same to you. Thank you for dropping by. =)

  9. those pillows are too cute!!! i never knew that about december 7!
