It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas......


I'm getting really excited and all enthusiastic about decorating the house this year for Christmas....I love getting all the decorations out of the attic and going through them, untangling the lights - even though you know you put them away properly?! - checking they work and deciding what decorations are going to go where.....

Every year I like to try and do something a little different and this year I want to go all white lights and Scandinavian.


I've been souring magazines, blog sites and pinterest for loads of ideas and think I've come up with a plan.....


And I'm going to use it as an excuse to clear away a load of my 'nic-nacs' and generally de-clutter the house....


I love all the Scandinavian pixies or 'Tomte / Nisse' who according to legend secretly live in the house and are it's guardian - I've decided we need one - especially if they are like Dobby, from Harry Potter, who will come out at night and clean. In fact if they do I don't just want one they can all come and bring their families & friends too........


Candles are a definite must - so I'm stock piling them now the only stipulation is they have to be white ....... and loads of evergreen.....I'm going to raid our local wood......


So if you are like me, about to start decorating this week and are looking for some inspiration I hope this has helped..... click here for a few more ideas


Have a great Thursday

Keep warm
