I was going through the posts from last Christmas to see what I should or shouldn’t write about this time around, and also because we are moving in two weeks I haven’t gone to the same trouble decorating – yet. So I don’t have as much to show you about the house at this stage. It will all be rather a mad rush in the last week, I’m afraid, which is not how I like to do Christmas!


There were some lovely posts and lots of beautiful and inspirational images from last year, so I thought I’d give you a easy click list so you can revisit them or check them out for the first time. Lots of photos and details from our Christmas at home and plenty of tips and ideas for Christmas decorating too.  Enjoy!

    Hi Mel, loving your blog (and style), thank you. I totally agree with you about real trees. I’ve always had one for the divine smell but now with little kids, I like to get our decorations up early, which you can’t do with a real tree here in Australia, they just don’t last. I’m dying to know where you got your 8ft tree from, it looks like a really nice one. I’m going to invest in one after Christmas when they will hopefully be much cheaper. And the Christmas candle of which you speak that makes up for the fake tree? Merry Christmas to you and yours and good luck with the move

  2. All of your touches are so beautiful and picture perfect! I get very into wrapping but admittedly it takes time and patience, this year starting earlier than usual..hoping to avoid some of the stress of former years!! Trying to catch up in blogland too.

  3. Wow that was one to remember. Beautiful.

Please feel free to leave a comment, I'd love to hear from you
