The leaves have finally fallen from the trees, the temperatures have dropped and the days are now scarily short. It seems this all happened so suddenly this year after having such a wonderful, prolonged mild autumn in London. But there is no escaping the fact: Christmas is approaching fast. For the first time ever I have managed to source, buy, wrap and send (if applicable) all my presents by the end of November (hence the radio silence…). Too good to be true? Indeed, it seems I have to first learn to embrace this unknown feeling of a stress-free December before I can truly enjoy it. Dare I say I feel a bit…lost? Give me another two weeks though and I am sure I will quite happily be lost in whatever it is, as long as I don’t have to hit the high streets…
The best part of not having to think about presents anymore and/or spending my evenings on amazon is: I have ample of time browsing through design blogs and magazines and being able to just enjoy whatever comes my way – like the following beautiful Christmas decorations.
This is a definite project for next weekend, so simple and yet so effective.
This Christmas tree is so perfectly imperfect that one just have to love it.
It can’t get much easier to bring a touch of Christmas to your home than this. All you need is some washi tape and a wall. And you know what? I might copy this idea as well…
A little potted fir tree, a heart made of twigs and an antler. It makes me smile when simple things just simply work.
I am in love with this festive display, so happy and cheerful.
And I still owe you this: the advent calendar for our children.
Probably the most convincing message for my two little rascals to help me staying sane until Christmas day…
Have you already decorated your home?
