Too many blue smarties

Honestly, that's how I feel, like a child that has eaten way too many blue smarties! For those of you that know me well, know my passion for Christmas .... I don't really do Halloween. Although I love seeing though how others celebrate it, but it's just not something I've ever done. But Christmas, well that's another matter! For me, I just can't get enough of it. We have 4 large trees each year to decorate and every room - and I mean every room gets decorated!! Part of the build up is magazines, books and of course lists - sitting down with my idea books around me, thinking and planning what this year’s colour scheme is going to be, just makes me almost squeal with delight .... so today, I pulled out the hamper under the stairs that contains past magazines, books, countdowns etc and started my planning. So, I wanted to share this beautiful site with you too.
I’m also in the process on "winterizing" our home, you know switching over the summer placemats and glasses in all their pretty pink and pastel colours for all the scrummy coloured throws & cushions of winter. I am I think a true winter girl .... only downside, is clearing out the wood burner each time. Still a small price to pay when hot chocolates with marshmallows are always welcome.

I have got some craft projects to share with you soon, so I will be back sooner rather than later.


  1. Ooh, look at all those fab magazines..I've come over all funny just looking at them all! I love the idea of having a hamperful.

    We are doing some Halloween stuff here, but we are massive Christmas lovers too.

  2. oh. my. gosh. i wasn't sure about the blue smartie thing until you started talking about christmas - now i understand! it made me chuckle. well, i'll be looking out for all the fun things you're doing in your house for christmas then - sounds like it will be amazing inspiration for a perpetual renter like me (you know, no nails in the wall, that kind of thing). oh, and thank you for your very kind words on my blog, and for your continued support! i really, really appreciate it x x x

  3. Looking forward to seeing what you plan over the next couple of months Sandra and don't forget to share any creations.

    .....and I see that you signed up for 12 days,I know you're going to love it :)

  4. 4 trees, wow, that is Christmasy. I have my house decorated in pinks, silver and white as I love girly colours. You can have each decorated differently

  5. Looking forward to seeing your ideas. Now how I would love to read all those mags curled up on the sofa with a fleecy throw and a hot chocolate! Heaven.

  6. You certainly like to get organised early - When your trees are ready you must let us see some photos! It's definately hot chocolate and sofa snuggling season now.


Thank you for taking the time to read my blog and leave me a message. It means a lot x
