Christmas Market

It seems to have been snowing everywhere in the country except here in Shropshire!! We've hardly had a flake! At least it has made it easier to get about and finish my Christmas shopping. I went to Shrewsbury on Saturday to the Christmas Market.

The market was very busy with lots of people mulling around the stalls.

The market is set in the old Square around the original Market Hall.

Once finished at the Market it was off to the shops.

I sorted all the decorations out for my tree last weekend. I have a bit of a mixture of all sorts. Some old and some new!

I haven't really gone for a theme this year and have just put absolutely everything on the tree until I couldn't find a branch left. I have put coloured lights on my tree this year as I like the vintage look of them.

Here's my tree all done! It has every colour you can think of on it and I think it looks really pretty....

...especially in the evening when the lights are low!

I would just like to take this opportunity to wish all my fellow bloggers a
very merry Christmas
a healthy, happy and prosperous New Year.
See you all in 2010!

  1. Your tree is really pretty,one of the best I've seen.I think I better go and put a few more decs on mine looks really bare in comparison.Love that crochet cushion on the chair!
    The snow has been lovely,but now the roads are so icy,and driving is difficult.
    Wishing you a very Happy Christmas and a New year full of happiness.


  2. Oh, oh, OH!!!! How you make me want to come to the "Land of my roots" (Well, PART of them anyway - - - the Foster part) to see/feel/smell/taste/and SHOP Christmas.

    That row of Tudor shops - - - - oh my - - - I want to be there right now.

    Your tree is so lovely, and of course my favorite shot of it is the one with the lights glowing.

    Merry Christmas right back to you!!!!

  3. Oh, how wonderful - I love Shrewsbury and would have loved to get there before Christmas but you have taken me there, thankyou:) Your tree looks wonderful! Happy Christmas to you and your family and best wishes for the New Year:)

  4. We have no snow in South Devon!
    Shrewsbury is a lovely place to shop...lucky you!
    A Very Happy Christmas ;-)

  5. That tree is fantastic! (love your jumper too!)
    A merry Christmas to you & yours & I hope your improved health continues. With lots of love Tracey xxx

  6. Hi Susie! Your tree looks fabulous!!! And you look like a model! It's snowing again here at the moment, these are really hard days, we are below the zero since last Wednesday and driving is really Christmas shopping!
    Wishing you and your family a wonderful Christmas and a very happy New Year! xxx

  7. Your tree is lovely and you've managed to take a good photo of it which I can never manage! It's many many years since I was last in Shrewsbury, I must make another visit as it's a lovely old town and awash with history. It somehow looks more festive with all the old black and white buildings too. Hope you have a wonderful holiday season.

  8. The row of shops looks SO cosy.
    Your tree is beautiful. I've never had coloured lights on my tree, always insisting on clear, but the pics of yours just may have got me thinking and wondering.... xx

  9. Your tree is gorgeous! I love the coloful look. It looks awesome at night. The market looked like such fun. Wish I could have been there. I hope you have a blessed and merry Christmas! Twyla

  10. Hi Sweetheart~ Thank you for the sweet message you left. Have a wonderful Christmas and Happy New Year. The market and shopping looks like so much fun. Someday I'll get to travel and see it all.

  11. I loved seeing the pictures of the christmas market, so very like the ones here in Germany! They can be such a pleasure to shop at, or just stroll through to look at all the lovelies for sale there, or drink a glass of cidar. As for your tree, I LOVE it!! A gal after my own heart who likes colored lights on the tree (which ours has too) and every branch tangling an ornament. We have so many I can never decide which ones to not put on, so they all end up on there, new ones and old mixing together to make a tree of past-Xmas-memories!! No theme on mine either, just this and that, and that is the way I like it. No tinsel on mine though cuz the dog eats it. :-) MERRY CHRISTMAS TO YOU!! ~~ Debby

  12. Your tree is very beautiful! Reminds me of the tree my parents had when I was a kid..that was way to many years ago! Some day I would love to go to a outdoor Christmas Market. Wishing you and yours a Merry Christmas! Warm hugs, Esther

  13. Shrewsbury looks delightful. I've never been but will add it to the list! The tree looks great!

  14. I found you by way of Rowan at Circle of the Year. It has been many years since I visited Shrewbury, as I now live in Canada. I liked seeing the photos of Ludlow on your side bar too, a destination for many school trips in the 60's for me!
    Your tree looks so pretty with the coloured lights. I love it.
    Have a Happy Christmas, and best wishes for 2010.

  15. your tree is magical!!!! I love it!
    Merry Christmas my friend and a safe and happy new year!

  16. Hi Susie! I hope you had a wonderful Christmas. Just want to say that your tree is lovely!

  17. Darling, I thank you for your love and support this past year when I needed it most. Your kindness has left me feeling blessed. You have made my first year of blogging a memorable one!! I am certain that 2010 will be an amazing year for us both. Enjoy the last day of the year and have a marvelous 2010 full of good health, happiness, prosperity, love and blessings.

    Love & Hugs
