Christmas decor…

Can you believe we’re in the final week of Advent?!  For those of you who answered a resounding NO!… then I’m right there with you!

I’ve spent the past few weeks re-painting our downstairs living area, making gifts for loved ones, participating in school excursions, making copious lists of everything I still want to achieve, and getting over the bump of an illness hurdle. 

But!   It’s all coming together and I’m winning!  How about you??

Would you like see how Mr Suds and I have redecorated our lounge room?

…and After!

Christmas decor 1

I love having white paintwork.  Since moving in to our home seven years ago, we have lived with the happy yellow walls and doors.  But it just clashed with everything!  The house is so much more serene now and my mind feels clear.

I got some bargains on EBay including the wicker chair above !  It sure pays to shop around… and it gives you more ideas too!

Christmas decor 4

I love these Jim Shore ornaments, this year I added the Santa Kitty cat to our collection… again, another bargain purchased on EBay.

I bet you could never guess where I purchased this dresser?!  You got it!  I should be on commission here shouldn’t I?!!

I hope you enjoyed the brief tour!  I’m going to return to my sewing now but I’ll be back again tomorrow with something special to share with you all!

Festive hugs!  Vikki xo  Smile

Aww your lounge looks fabulous sweet. Everything looks so snuggly and family orientated. I love seeing your dekkies, in fact I think I recognise one of them-lol.
You are so lucky with your e-bay bargains.

Gorgeous!!! Vikki, these photos would be right at home in the pages of a luscious glossy magazine :)
I can see why you find it calming, it is just beautiful.
