I have lots of decorations which I've accumulated over the years, some from my childhood so it's all a bit of a mash, pretty though! :)

Running down the road at high speed here.. although I have to wait until 1 Dec before I can decorate! Loving all-things snowy winter wonderland creams & whites with a touch of warm, yummy red this year. My guess would lean towards pink/red for you?
Happy weekend,
xx

Hi sweet girl! I have been pondering that question already- Not quite sure WHAT I am going to do this year. I have always been very traditional but I am thinking I may need to change things up a bit. I am sorting things down this year and letting the kids choose from all my old ornaments....to take and cherish. I have been "collecting Christmas" since 1975 so you can imagine how much I have! xo Diana

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

Tammy Chrzan said...

Well I'm over to London in a few days to spend an early Christmas with my partner and we do silver, we have a silver tree and we wrap all of our gifts in silver, but over here, oh my kids love all the Christmas colors, the traditional greens and reds and the golds and silvers... lots of white and lots of sparkle! We LOVE Christmas around here!

A Lauren to Herself said...

I'm so excited for Christmas and I desperately need some inspiration/ideas when it comes to decorating our dining table on Christmas day. I'm sure you've got some great ideas? xx

Lovely photo by the way. I mentioned you in my Friday Favourites post last week x

Marilyn said...

Guessing you will have pink and turquoise. I think mine will be the traditional red and green this year. There will be red, white, blue for the Christmas tea. And I am sure a sprinkling of white in with the traditional.

Castles Crowns and Cottages said...

KORALEE! I love your new profile picture of the socks! LOVE IT SO!

My sweet one, each and every day I am praying, PRAYING that answers will be given to you soon. I just sent you an email, so in your own time, let me know.

What delicious things are you baking up this weekend? Any romps outdoors? MUCH LOVE TO YOU PRECIOUS SOUL! Anita

Privet and Holly said...

We are traveling
for Christmas this
year, so I'll be using
a lighter hand at
home with the decor.
Probably a lot of
greens, silver and
gold. Very natural.

Love this sweet
picture and can't
wait to see the colors
that you chose!
