Friday, December 20

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

Christmas!!!! (well, as Christmassy as you can get for a minimalist who hates clutter and has extreme OCD tendencies LOL)....


A little bunting (I used this year's wrapping paper so that it all matches)....


The other two trees (I would love real trees but they're just so expensive!!)....


Crackers, place settings and after dinner mints....


One or two gift tags....


Dean isn't very impressed with my efforts, if he had his way the house would be covered from top to bottom in tinsel and lights :)  I'm wrapping presents tonight which mean's no sleep (& plenty of coffee) for me!  Have a fabulous weekend, I hope it's not too hectic!! xoxo

P.S. Only FIVE more sleeps to go ;)

Edit: Marion - I made the tags by rounding the corners of a 5cm x 8cm piece of kraft card and then cutting the 'fishtail' with scissors, it took me two hours to make all of these but I do work fast! lol

We had a real tree for Christmas one year, and I hated it, I had to hoover round the tree every day for my entire holiday!

Darling tags, beautifully decorated home (love how you even coordinated the papers on your bunting), and impressive dedication. We'll be away for the holidays so I pretty much didn't sleep last week preparing for the departure...hope you get a bit of rest soon!
