the best is yet to come

Of course. All that Christmas stuff has been lying around in stores for weeks now and it’s pretty annoying to be steamrolled by Christmas jingles and gingerbread from September on.
But now, since it’s November already, it’s fairly bearable.

Last week the festive season officially started in London with the Christmas lights switch-on on the big shopping streets (as pretty and impressive as last year’s) and – with it come the Christmas window displays.
I love window shopping. Especially during Christmas season when everything is nicely decorated with fairy lights and stuff. But then I saw this:

I mean… seriously? It’s hard to believe there are actually people that not only buy pink glitter skull ornaments, but also decorate their Christmas tree with it. Sad enough that most people don’t even know what Christmas is about, but this is just painful for the eyes.

 I’ll post some instructions/tutorials on how I did it soon. I love how paper and oranges make it look old-fashioned and it’s very inexpensive and doesn’t require much storage space later on, because you can just throw it away if you want.

By the way, “the best is yet to come” is not only a good Sinatra song, it’s also the inscription on his gravestone. How cool is that?
