Another Red House Christmas

Gorgeous images of Red House's celebrations of Christmas again this year.  They really know how to do it up in the spirit of William Morris!

Images from last year

Gingerbread Brother/Sisterhood...who could this be?

Father Christmas carries old-fashioned wooden toys in  his sack.

The tree is bedecked with paper birds, their designs taken directly from the painted glass windows of the house.

 This year, yesterday, there was a power outage at Red House, so they lit candles during the celebration instead.

Red House's incredible Father Christmas.

If you live in the area, please go visit Red House for Christmas for me!

And if, like me, you live nowhere near, follow the Red House page on Facebook for many more goodies like this!

I've been seeing these images on instagram and wondered if you'd seen them. Their old world Father Christmas is wonderful!

Isn't he? Some people have posted glibly about how non-rotund he is, but I think he's perfect.
