Not exactly Christmas decorations, but anyway...

Merry Christmas!

(In case you're wondering,Sarubobo is the name of these traditional dolls, originating in this region of Japan)

I apologise in advance if I'm tardy with commenting on your blogs or returning comments during the week... I will get to you though!
