Particular Pieces - Christmas Decorations

Friday, December 10, 2010

I have a small collection of Christmas decorations, namely a 3ft tree, some lights that sit on my window sill and enough decorations to assemble a festive looking tree - although the star never sits upright. As I spent a lot of years at other people's houses on Christmas Day I didn't feel the need for more than a few token decorations. However, OH is big on Christmas so I need to make more of an effort as we moved in together this year (he continues to shake his head in disbelief at my artificial Christmas tree - real is where it's at, or so I am told).

But where to start? I'm a little lost with room decorations... the thought of tinsel, baubles and anything shines or dangles leaves me cold. Twinkling lights and yule logs are more my cup of tea.

In my quest for something tasteful my first stop was MyDeco for inspiration - a site with everything 'interior' in one place. Here is what I found...

Wreath £30 from Notonthehighstreet

Pine Cone Garland £17.50 from Idyll Home

Ceramic Santa £7.50 M&S

Giant Antiqued Silver Baubles from £9.50 from Graham and Green

Lavendar Heart £12.00 from My Deco Boutique

Painted Wooden Deer Advent Calender £10.17 from Graham and Green

Okay, so at this juncture I should point out that I am starting to enjoy myself, despite my normal 'bah! humbug!' approach to decorations (well it IS shopping after all). It seems I have a penchant for rustic items and pine cones - a far cry from the tinsel and gaudy hanging ceiling decorations of my childhood. I suspect that our home will have a rosy glow this festive season.

Whilst catching up on my blog reading this week I also found inspiration in these blogs louboosandshoes  - velvet ribbon and holly to decorate your door knob anyone? and thebottomoftheironingbasket I could climb in and spend Christmas there.

And it is with a festive feeling in my belly that I leave you.
