Christmas 2012

  Xmas got away from me, so this is a better late than never post. :-) 

 I used all my fave traditional stuff for the foyer.


  This doesn't show up well, but looked really pretty. I simply hung a range of baubles on mono filament thread from a piece of dowel. I wrapper tinsel around the dowel to cover it & then hung it from the window pelmet.

 I saw this idea on another blog & thought it was so cute. I love old ports & have quite a few. I've left it out & will set up another little vignette in it to enjoy through the year.

It was nice having a 'pretty' tree this year. I decided to go pastel with my tree, soft pink, aqua, lime, silver & white & I really loved it.

The dumb waiter makes a great place to display our village. Rowan set it up for me this year & it looked great!

I decided to put together a hamper of food & fun for Emma & her fiancée James. I picked up this gorgeous vintage cane hamper at my fave vintage shop, it was just perfect & Emma can use it in her sewing room for storage.

 Molly loves Xmas, (she's very fond of ham), so it's her fave time. :-)

Such beautiful Christmas displays, and I really like the idea of using the old vintage suitcase. Wonder how many of us (like me) have disposed of these old treasures when we purchased our modern travel cases?
