Decorations in my lounge room







Hi everyone
Just thought I would share a few photos (sorry they aren't the best) of my lounge room.... I don't do a huge amount of Christmas decorating but just like to add a few touches... This year we have 2 real trees (even though they are tiny) I wanted real ones this year... It is nearly 10 pm here in Australia and I am a little tired so will hopefully write again soon....

Cathy, again you have done a beautiful job, I think the adage less is more is a great one, wish I could follow it a little more myself! Adore the little tree in the enamel bucket.

Oh Cathy that was so lovely. Beautiful pictures and a beautiful room. It was a while since I visited so I read, and read and read. It`s a treat to see all the lovely things you make and read about your life. Since I`m a Christmas freak I enjoyed seeing your decorations. I agree - less is more. Overcrowded is nothing for me so your pictures were a great inspiration. Will visit you soon again my friend!

Lots of love
Jeanette

Good morning Cathy,
Nice to visit you again :)
Your loungeroom looks so beautiful!
Oh, I really like your choice of colours, so calm and nostalgic. Love the picture of the lights that are floating!!Such a good Idea, WOnderful...
I recently decided to make a few changes in my home. It has been a bit too white for a while now, and after receiving and reading the last issue of Country Living Uk. I want more colours in house. Not just that, but a change of decorations as well. Caroline Zoob is a great inspiration, you know here don`t you? I love the colours that she uses. Reminds me of those you use.
I hope your days are good. Yesterday I visited Angela and she was talking about how perfect the weather was and how much she enjoy it. I am shure you have the same feeling?
Take Good Care Cathy!!
Kiss, Aina

Everything looks so peaceful and gentle.The colours are soft and comforting.I must ask the maker of the darling little angel in the paper cone.
I hope everyone is feeling well and that you enjoy your upcoming holiday.
