When do you start decorating for Christmas ?

Thursday, November 13, 2014

You see, I'm a bit of a Christmas freak. I just adore this time of the year. The decor, the magic, the food, the music, the good family time ... Every year, I have to patiently wait for the most reasonable time to get our Christmas tree out of his box (so not glamorous when I think about it, but so much more convenient, and quite a good deal as years go by). Of course, living in England where shops display Christmas decor almost right after summer doesn't help !

And since we won't be here for the holidays, I might actually start decorating next week, so that we can enjoy Christmas decor for the first time in our house for a bit longer. I'm torn between white, red or turquoise for our tree, but there will be a lot of lights of course. And I'll finally start playing Christmas songs in the house, which is something I've forbidden myself doing until then ... I just have been compensating by adding cinnamon in almost every cake I bake ... And by dreaming of a beautiful Christmas home !
Thank God I have a friend coming over today, otherwise I think I might have taken some ornaments out of the garage this right afternoon ! How about yourself, when do you start decorating ?

ORC: my favourite rooms

Monday, November 10, 2014

Once again, sorry for not being the most productive blogger. We've had so many things (good things !) going on the past few days/weeks that I admit I put the blog on hold for a moment. But I really want to give it a fresh start asap, so stay tuned ! And I have some fun projects to share including my office reveal, my kids' rooms, etc. And a little announcement that will hopefully be the starting point of a new and much anticipated career for me ...

In the meanwhile I've been admiring all the great projects that 20 very talented bloggers have completed during the now famous One Room Challenge. Each of them is so amazing that I had to share my favourites with you !
