Its beginning ...
to look a lot like .... Christmas!
In my last post I said I wanted our first Christmas in this home to be lovely so what is it that makes it lovely?
Part of it is the decorating and decor and for me 'lovely' incorporates elements of the things I love. This means we will be making and displaying some handmade goodness of varying levels.
Our Family Christmas tree goes up tomorrow, the one our gifts will be placed under and this afternoon I re purposed this dead plant. Which some of you may remember I said I had earmarked for a craft project, earlier in the year.
It sits upon a sheltered outdoor table with two of my handmade willow wreaths next to it.
This is my little 'tree' adorned with spots and stripes, cut out with the PapertreyInk Tiny Tags dies. Not remotely traditional but most certainly lovely by my standards.
If you celebrate it, What makes a 'lovely' Christmas at your house?
