Jingle Jumpers!
Jingle Jumpers!
  • Jingle Bells all the way, little baby in the hay, glitzy tree and hanging socks, lots and lots of toffee pops..........!Ah! yes Christmas is on its Merry way. What to do.....Grump our way through it or happily embrace it?  What better way to do this than with the Amazing! Totally cheesy, Dreadfully kitschy  Christmas Jumper!

I swore two years ago that I'd never succumb, that I'd never be seen dead in one. Then I walked into my local charity shop and found a gorgeous retro gem and BAM! I was hooked. I'm now the proud owner of three Xmas woolly wonders. These, I will showcase for you with photos below.                       On my usual trek into Dublin I found these little gems.

Hmmm........will you be donning a cheery Elf or Tinsel tree on your little self this Xmas day? Its all for the fun and thats the thing. This particular trend, and one I can't see disappearing any time soon (and to be honest I'd be a little sad if it did) is full of festive fun and what better way to wile away the Christmas hours than a cosy knit of Xmas Cheer!

So get out there,one and all and buy your comfy Xmas Jumper haul!!
